Political Posters in Mexico's southern Highlands

EZLN Autonomous Zone in southern Chiapas

Las Vegas at night is a something to be seen. I took most of these shots at slow shutter speeds after consuming copious amounts of caffeine.


These shots were taken at a friends jewelry store.

This collection of images were from the floor of the Redwood groves in northern California's Humboldt and Mendocino counties.

The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate, the opening into the San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean. It connects the city of San Francisco on the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula to Marin County as part of US Highway 101 and California State Highway 1.

The Golden Gate Bridge had the longest suspension bridge span in the world when it was completed in 1937 and has become an internationally recognized symbol of San Francisco and the United States. In the 70 years since completion the span length has only been surpassed by seven other bridges. It still has the second longest suspension bridge main span in the United States, after the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in New York City.

These photos were taken in Northern California, one very cold morning just after sunrise.

This is a train that was parked on the tracks, so Jess and I went out and looked around a bit... and a took a few shots of the train and its cargo.

For a short while I occupied (lived in) a small photography studio in Magnolia Texas. This is one of a handful sessions I shot there.

These are photos from Saturday night at the museum of Fine Arts Houston. Starbucks was introducing Pomegranate Frappaccino and threw a nice bash to make it happen. Providing the entertainent was Bavu Blakes, Hydroponic Sound System, EP Sarah, and DJ Ayres. And I think every one there had a great time. If you were there and happen to see your photo, drop me a line- ( let me know who you are, and I will gladly put a name to your photo.

See yall out and about,


DJ Ayres giving a clinic on coolness

"Bavu Blakes is a grown ass man", bwah.

Mr. Matty and Bavu Blakes pose for a pic.
Bavu making it look easy.

Cheers Matty.

E.P. Sarah was one of the hosts of the event, and fun as hell to photo.

Unfortunately I got to the show a little late and missed most of Hydroponic Sound System. But after the show, these guys were making the VIP room seem like day care, but with booze. - letting off steam by slamming beers and kicking beach balls.

playing like kids....

this crew has a back belt in keeping it real.

A diverse crowd was on hand for the shows- all zip codes were well represented.

big smile in the VIP room

...And the Golden Booty award goes to.......

This is the guy who gets his had "borrowed"... keep scrolling dow. You'll see.

Chillin' outside. (If that's possible in Houston during August)

Les is more

Bubba was one wild cat... that's all I am going say.

Matty, double fisting beers, on his way up.

A picture is worth a thousand words and it's all true. Believe it.

Just when you think too much is never enough, "Rhinestone Life" hit the stage and omfg... !

the front man for this band reminds me of a combination of Elvis, Jim Morrison, and John Belushi, with a heaping dose of "not giving a F@%K"!

Lettin' it all hang out

a move straight from "The King's" play book.

The stage just wasn't big enough to contain this kind of energy, so dude jumps into the crowd, takes the hat off a fans head, and continues his act while bouncing beach balls off his head.
working the crowd.
