East Texas Oilfield Expo – March 6-7, 2013

We attended the East Texas Oilfield Show in Longview Texas last week. Little different from my regular fine art shows being more of a trade show atmosphere. Part way setting up my lights in the dark tent, I realized there was no electricity – so was also the darkest show I’ve ever done (yes the pics are a little higher exposure and lightened more). Good conversation and time wit Marcela :)

Thunderbird in the Badlands!

T-Bird in Midland, Texas a few days ago after extended Thanksgiving with mom & Dad. November 2012

Ah Shi Sle Pa Badlands in northwest New Mexico between Rio Grande (Balloon Fiesta) show weekends. October 2012

Roadway between Chinandega & Leon which my sweety has been traveling a lot the last few days. January 2012

And a flock of pelicans shot off a pier with Marcela in Galveston after Artoberfest thrown in just for fun :). October 2012

Of course some digital editing including masking blending and painting and yes changed the license plate ;)

The theme has been forming in my head for quite some time especially since I saw the Thunderbird parked in front of a fence at a pipe company. Told my good friend and client I was on the phone with I just gotta stop and snap that one. Chatted with the owner and got shooting.

Rarely do I turn over anything new production-wise in less than 24 hours – especially a montage, but this had started mentally long before.

Love to hear/see you comments :D

Nicaragua 2012 – Wuilber heads Back to Panama

Click here to Start from the beginning of my Nicaragua 2012 Journal

Wuilber goes back to Panama tomorrow so planned to spend some time with him, but he was busy getting ready to go back. the odd noise on the old truck was pretty much what I thought it was, but sounds like they are going to have to    Do another take to get it fixed right, hopefully will make it to Managua & back tomarrow. They let me ‘practice driving’ this evening and I told them I was driving before Wuilber was born. But I will have to admit I have never driven a steering wheel that was so loose, I’ve driven boats with tighter steering ;) I told then I was going to drive slow ‘tortuga style’ cause I just don’t like zooming in and out with all the kids and families all over the street.
Watched some booty-shaking music videos and Robert Rodriguez’s Las Mariachi and part of the sequel from a hammock, and had a wonderful dinner. Marcela chatted with the Ladies in the small garden courtyard.

Nicaragua 2012 – Babtism

Click here to Start from the beginning of my Nicaragua 2012 Journal

Today we baptism for my twin nephews (Sabrina’s) Carlito & Raul with teior parents Jose Abana & Carla. There was a meeting before we had to attend – I shot some of the kids having class’s in the church yard and an ol’e cushman while waiting.
After the service was lunch at the grandmother’s (abuela) house, where the kids did Piniata in the small courtyard. In the late after noon (la tardy), we went to the beach at Corintha less than 30 minutes away. Lots of shots of Marcela, her sister (armarna) Leonila and some of the kids (ninos & ninas) in the surf. Then good fish dinner.
