One of my favorites. This is my family from Easter 2014 taken in Deville, Louisiana (yes, the town was named after us in the late 1700s). I set everyone up around my father’s old tractor in front of the feeding shed built by my great grandfather. My Canon was on a tripod and I was able to capture this using the remote trigger from my 600 EX-RT.
Dallas Aurora art exhibit, 2013. I was lying on the ground to capture the feel of this diminutive display. I thought the artist was able to create a simple but unique “playing catch-up” effect.
A typical scene from the streets of Mumbai, India, a city with a population of about 25 million. A ‘goods’ carrier, a bull in the midst of traffic, and rickshaws. Of course, there are no other major metropolitan areas where one would see this.
Another typical Mumbai street scene – a woman with a small child begging for Rupees. The beggars were often on crutches, wrapped in bandages or carrying their children.
An Indian woman with her child just down the street from my flat in Mumbai. This is a favorite type of photography for me – capturing the moment without the subject looking right into the lens.
The demeanor of most of the Indians changed when I had my camera – most were happy to be in front of the camera. This lady was very pleasant, and I was able to speak with her for a bit after a couple of shots.
This was taken at a fort located west of Agra, India. This man was not very friendly and seemed to have had a harsh life. I wondered about his experiences and the things he’s seen…
Indian school girls about to go to class in Agra, India. This school was built in the early 1900s and I was curious about what had changed or improved in their school system.
Local Indians spending time on the edge of the Arabian Sea in Mumbai at the end of the day. The warm/hot dry weather is the same for 7-8 months out of the year. I wondered where the locals go to relax during monsoon season.
Night view of downtown Dallas from the top of the Stoneleigh Residences. I was trying to capture the effect of the moon.
Night view of the U.S. Consulate in Mumbai, India from the top of the Trident Hotel. This was a happy moment for me since we had just completed the construction of this long overdue project. The U.S. government used this photo in their publications about the Consulate.
An unretouched photo of a Texas sunset in August. I was traveling from Louisiana and suddenly pulled off the road to get this image. I have traveled regularly at the same time of the day from Louisiana to Dallas but have never seen this type of sunset.
