They’re everywhere

People, that is. Every freakin’ where. I enjoy shooting candid photos of people. I don’t look at the photos in the camera preview after taking them. Instead, I wait until I get home and hook the camera up to the ‘puter. Most of the pics are not so great because I’m trying to hide the […]

Self Portrait Friday

There is the self portrait and then there is the self portrait with the queen – she who is always royal. It is  quite unfortunate that we failed to receive an invitation to Kate and Wills’ wedding. I’m imagine the thing is buried in a stack of mail on the kitchen island. Maybe it accidentally […]

Sunday in Houston: Big, shiny diller

Used to be, in another blog in another time, I did ‘business balloon Sunday’. That’s because, used to be, in another time in Houston, business balloons were everywhere. Houston was the business balloon capital of all creation. And it was good. But then, some wiseacre at city hall decided business balloons were unsightly and lowered […]

Penguins!

On the New York Times website a couple weeks ago there was a request for readers to submit travel photos. I don’t usually give in to these sorts of things, but, for some reason, I made an exception this time. Perhaps it was the thirty second thrill I’d get if they actually chose to feature […]

Self Portrait Friday

Shadow self portraits – you see your shadow, think it looks cool and you take the picture. Sometimes the picture looks as good as the shadow, sometimes not so much, but mine usually look like I’m pulling something out of my head. This picture was taken in New Mexico at one of the Bowlin’s travel […]

Planning is half the fun

Great googly moogly, but I do loves to plan me a trip. And what’s the most fun about planning? Yes, that’s right – maps! Maps are awesome. I can sit and peruse maps for hours. As far as I’m concerned, one of the greatest functions to come out of the internetz craze is Google Maps. […]

Off the grid in Columbus TX

My father believes the best way from Houston to Austin is up Hwy. 71. He’s adamant about this as he is with just about everything else. In fact, there are three basic ways to get to Austin from Houston. All three have their merits and, to me, there is no easy way to get to […]

NOLA – BK

BK – That’s “before Katrina” In May of 2005 we visited New Orleans. The queen was there for the Saints and Sinners Fest – a GLBT writing symposium with workshops and presentations by published gay writers. I was there just to be going to N’awlins. It was a fun trip. Five months later, New Orleans […]

Self Portrait Friday

Usually within the course of every trip, a self portrait opportunity presents itself.  Because I am the one taking the pictures, I usually don’t end up in many of the photos unless I hand the camera to the queen and ask her to take my pic. Because of this, I try to seek out reflective […]

Goddess Time (theory of time/space continuum principals and theories related to the concept of time as originally defined by queenmaxine) def: Going with the flow; not sweating the small stuff; taking life as it comes; doing something based on how you feel at the moment; making a list but not checking it twice; if it […]
