August Critical Mass

It's been a few months since I've been on the streets with Austin's Critical Massers but yesterday marked my return to the road. As usual, there were some great photo moments on the ride. I bailed after the Mass went for a dip in Barton Springs but you can check out more photos from the ride here. Highlight of the ride was definitely Papa Wheely and his son out on the ride, probably the youngest person ever on an Austin Critical Mass ride.... kid's going to be poppng wheelies all over the place soon. Like father, like son.

The Windy City

I didn't think it could get much better than Austin but last week I visited Chicago and fell in love with this amazing city. I initially went to take a look at the Art Institute of Chicago's graduate school program and ended up running around all over town with my sister. From Millennium Park to the Sears Tower observation deck, I had my camera in hand and came home with some great photos of this architectural and cultural wonder. As always, more photos from my trip can be seen here.

Road Trippin' With My Two Favorite Allies

Tomorrow I will be leaving on a road trip for Chicago, en route to driving my sister back to school for her final year of college... man, I'm feeling old! Anyway, if anyone even reads this blog regularly other than my grandma, don't expect any updates until after I get back, at which point I'll have lots of new photos for your eyes. Hopefully this road trip will be nothing like this one:

I'm on a Boat

Yesterday afternoon was the annual summer boat party thrown by the 21st Street Co-op. In the madness that was swimming, kegs, lots of nudity, kegs, random boat party hoppers, dance parties and more kegs, I didn't have my camera out much but had a blast! If you've never partied on a barge before, I highly recommend checking out Beach Front Boat Rentals. These guys will take care of you and sit back while you party hard on Lake Travis!

The Therapeutist

The Therapeutist is a coffee-table-type-book that I have been slowly putting together. Created with just paper, scissors, and glue, this work in progress is a tribute to both my childhood days when collaging was a past-time favorite of mine and to one of my favorite surrealist artists Rene Magritte. It's been a rainy day project as of late, but one that I hope to take off the back burner and continue adding to. To see more collages click here...

Bat City Bombshells Photo Shoot

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of doing another photo shoot with the Bat City Bombshells, a burlesque troupe here in Austin, TX. They have been performing for almost a year now and are just getting hotter and hotter! Check out more of the photos from the shoot here.
