My friend, Dan, had his beautiful tattoo from Gautamala finished at Ancient Ink on South First St. in Austin. Tattoo shops are like no other place on earth. Color. Art. Grit. Soul. Pain. Love. It's amazing how they navigate those waters each day.
Did you know there is a Lomography store in Austin? True story! They are on Congress Avenue, near the Capital (notably in the old Little City location, which holds a very dear place in my heart). And, they have events! My friend invited me to a Lomo Dog Walk and we had a blast. Buster knows he's a star, we were all finally catching up to him.
This one was special. Really, really special. I've known Amanda and Nick for years, and every detail was... special. Amanda is a designer and Nick an architect and together you can tell that they made sure every detail was special.
Jef and I had opportunity to go to London recently and this is one of my favorite memories. In the midst of such vibrant, bustling city there are these huge, beautiful parks. I was so taken I sat down on one of the benches to take it all in.
I made some creative portraits of the band three33 during SXSW. They are a solid rock band here in Austin - check them out! They needed individual and group photos for promotional materials, CDs, etc. We played around with a few techniques - slow shutter, candids - this is one of my favorites of the day.
