Saturday was West 19th Street with Houston Photowalks. Since I shoot in this area a couple of time a month or more it is difficult to find new subject matter. Went in a shop we don't usually visit, Casa Ramirez. Was pleasantly surprised. The proprietor was a very interesting lady and they had some very unique items. We made a few stops and, as usual, ended up at Eclectic Home, Alcy's favorite store in all of Houston. In all, after an hours the heat got to me but I came away pleased.
Sunday it was a Pixel Party at the Museum of Natural Science to photograph in the Cockrell Butterfly Center. I'm not much of a butterfly photographer and these are not very Darbyesk. Since I lost my last flash in the flood I didn't expect to do much good but was hoping for the best. A lot of people and not a whole lot of butterflies didn't help the situation. Didn't get to bed until after 2:30am after the fireworks shoot, the walking and heat on West 19th then getting up at 5am to make the Party and I was tuckered out before I began. Need to get my flash replaced and go back when there are less people there. In the meantime I will try to rest up cutting the grass or the neighbors are going to ask me to move.
