echeveria flower

echeveria flower

my echeveria produced flowers this spring. i have never seen an echeveria flower and didn’t really know they produced flowers. but why wouldn’t they? other cactus and succulents produce flowers. anyway, it was an amazingly small and detailed flower and would probably have gone unnoticed, if it weren’t for my trusty macro lens and trained photographer’s eye! 🙂

Houston travel guide photo?

art car

This image has a definitive Houston ‘feel’ for me. Its got Texas widlflowers and an art car with bright vibrant colors in an wild urban setting. Maybe one day this photo can find its way onto a Houston travel brochure.

motorcycle rider sips from flask

I love this guy! I couldn’t tell if he was a parade on-looker or a participant because he would ride alongside the parade in his pirate garb, then stop every now and again for a sip from his flask or a puff of his cigar (which I captured in another shot) and then continue on riding alongside the parade. Either way, he is definitely full of character.

Parade on-lookers enjoy the art cars

I LOVE this picture. The parade on-lookers were just as interesting as the art cars themselves, and especially this couple and random photographer. This picture really says Houston and Texas to me.
