Wandering through the green, getting lost in light.

The feeling of going and moving, working all the time, shooting for newspapers and other clients, trying to make time for my own work - all of it is hard. The past few weeks have been non-stop, along with work, I ran into some car situations that drained my bank account and just put me in a shitty mood.

Local Politics

Ok so we have all seen the insanity of the national political scene billowing out of newspapers and radio/TV stations. In Texas, I’ve been covering the more local variety, often just as crazy, political elections. The race for Texas House Seat 54 has just been nutty.  The mailers the two republican candidates, Scott Cosper and Austin Ruiz, sent out following the primary in March and during the runoff were simply beyond any measure of normal mudslinging in this photog’s humble opinion. One event included “an open letter” to Ruiz, wherein Cosper implied that the eye doctor hired a private investigator to comb through the medical records of one of his children. Ruiz went with a modern style and took to social media to attack on Cosper.

Where I'm at...

My blog hiatus is officially over -  like I was ever a regular blogger. "I'm going to do my very best to change that now." I say as the running monologue in my head says, "Ha! Don't fool yourself, Mr. Bachman." Anyway, back to the point.

The Rain and Mud...

San Antonio Southside's Israel Orihuela along with a pack of tired 5A runners walk, catching their breath, after crossing the finish line covered in mud at the UIL State Championship Saturday. With rain falling all morning, the route at Old Settlers Park was turned into a mud track, some runners slipped and fell, others lost shoes during the meet.

Recent Work

Here is some recent work from the last couple months.

The first few images are from my three days of shooting for the I love Texas Photography Instagram.

Ron Bruno, sits and takes a break from driving at a rest stop off of Hwy 290 near Fredericksburg. Bruno was sending out a daily inspirational message to a group of friends and family about taking on giants, or as he put it, those things that keep you from accomplishing your goals in life. Bruno Makes a drive from Austin to Fredericksburg twice a week to work on building a distillery in Fredericksburg. which is a brand new venture fro him, but he is more than excited trying to figure out how to succeed in this business.

Masters Project Update...

Since finishing my coursework at MU, I started working on my master's project. It is moving a little slower than I originally anticipated (I'm sure to the chagrin of my committee), but I feel like it is progressing. Brief explanation of the project: when I started grad school, I was looking around for topics and stories that I found interesting and that could turn into a larger project. I originally wanted to work off the topic of disappearing small towns in the Midwest, but while researching, I found more than a few articles about how Latino populations were migrating into small towns across the Midwest had how this migration had saved the areas from becoming ghost towns.
