It's not like I only have a couple of hundred things that I should be doing. I'm sitting here playing with Topaz.

My 'In Your Face' is Back

This is the last weekend of Ren Fest so I couldn't miss this last opportunity even though I did very poorly on my previous visit the year.

Not as excited as I had hoped but maybe next year. The weather wasn't cooperating today, misty rain and began to get colder as the day went on. Only about  four hundred more to process... Then the next is Dickens on the Strand. If the weather is good we may stay two days.

Via Colori

Joe at Barnabys for breakfast
I signed up for a shoot at Via Colori with Houston Photowalks. The instructions was to use the Lens Baby, which I did. Well, I could hardly refuse since it was at a Photowalks event that I won the Lens Baby in a drawing. I really should use it more often and appreciate being forced to get it out of the closet--Thank you Joe!

For those not familiar, Via Colori is a sidewalk art festival held each year in Houston. Possibly a hundred or so artists so some amazing work with chalk on several blocks of Houston streets.
 Shooting at places like Via Colori are a lot of fun. One of my favorite things to TRY to do is to find design in chaos and Via Colori provides lots of practice.
I also sighed up with the Katy Meet Up so I could use a regular lens...

But I got one head shot. I saw this lady with a bright yellow sun painted on her cheek. She seemed to be having so much fun with her friends that I couldn't resist asking for a photograph. I shot a couple and love this one...

Still have a couple of hundred more to process between Liendo and Via Colori. I may never finish and I really need to get prints ready for an upcoming show early next month and get new stuff framed for the studio wall. Then Dickens on the Strand is in a week or two... I may never get caught up.
