We drove down to Galveston a week ago hoping to catch some shots on the island as an approaching cold front passed through. Our timing worked out pretty well as the rain broke just in time for the fast moving front to pass over us and I took this shot from the causeway gazebo.
We stopped by the Pink Heals firetruck tour when it was in Baytown the other day and took this picture of our grandson Kale. I submitted it in last night's Bay Area Photo Club Honors Night Program under the November assignment of "People" and was give a gold award by the 3 judge panel. The Pin Heals tour is a traveling group of pink firetrucks used to raise breast cancer awareness and raise funds for the effort to eliminate it. Cancer survivors are invited to sign the trucks, which I think added to the applicability of the shot in the "People" assignment. Learn more about "Pink Heals" at http://www.pinkfiretrucks.org/.
Here's another shot of an Osprey at the Baytown Nature Center on Sunday morning. Calm winds and low water levels in the tidal pools pushed out but this weekends cold front made for an active morning for the birds.
I took this photo of a fire burning at Exxon in Baytown this evening. I pulled off on the side of the Rollingbrook Drive overpass, with about 10 other cars, long enough to snap 3 shots before an amplified voice out of a police cruiser respectfully asked us to move on!
I entered this scene in the Bay Area Photo Club Honors Night Program under the assignment topic of "Silence." The judges awarded it with a Gold award and enough points to make it the high scoring photo of the night in the category.
I submitted this image, of my wife on our Grand Canyon trip, for consideration for our Bay Area Photo Club's Honor's Night on Tuesday night. The assignment was "Loud" which was defined as "Images that convey sound, volume or brashness." I'd hoped the judges would see the same "brashness" in this photo that I did and apparently they did as the photo was given a "Gold" award.
I work in the industrial distribution sector as a salesman for a master distributor of valves and fittings in Houston, TX. I am a member of the Bay Area Photo Club which meets at the Art Alliance Center at Clear Lake in Clear Lake Texas on Tuesday nights. I shoot with an Olympus E-3 and my favorite lens in my Zuiko 12-60.
