Finding Vivian Maier

I went to see the new documentary Finding Vivian Maier this afternoon.  This is a fascinating movie about an incredible artist.  Anyone interested in photography should see this film.  You can see her amazing work here.

No tickets to The Final Four?  No problem.  Head over to the Deep Ellum Art Festival.  Lots of great people watching, interesting artwork, including plenty of photography, and lots of great food and drink.

Lake Tahoe Beauty

This was my first visit to Lake Tahoe, one of the most beautiful places on the planet.  The day before leaving Dallas the Zeiss Otus 55mm f1.4 arrived.  I had no time to even calibrate the beast, which weighs more than the Nikkor 24-70mm zoom.  I must say, it makes for some beautiful images._DSC1872-Edit _DSC1897-Edit _DSC1942-Edit _DSC1982 TahoeSunset1

#9 Retired

I had the privilege of attending the ceremonies to retire Mike Modano’s jersey #9.  For those who are not hockey fans, Mike is the greatest American born player to play the game, one of the best in the world and played nearly his entire career with the Dallas Stars of the NHL.

Last weekend we drove down to Fredericksburg, Texas avoiding the interstates and taking the back roads through small town Texas.

Frustration:

A well produced/Photoshopped photograph still needs something else to distinguish it from the photo taken on the run by someone using their first iPhone……

This pic was taken early in the afternoon and Photoshopped to look like it was taken at night.

Yeah I know, another cat photo.

Well this cat, unlike most, never sits still for a photo.  I finally caught her though.  Fuji X-Pro1, 23mm f1.4 shot at 1/60, f 1.4 ISO 1000.
