Hi y'all. The majority of this post is from the morning of March 9th and shot in downtown Austin Texas USA. That morning I saw the earliest signs of the two week SXSW circus that comes into town every March. I love this time of year because there are hordes of visitors from every part of the country and world, which makes for very interesting people watching...go figure, I am just getting around to photos from 10 days ago! Anyhow, the rain that day somehow helped strangers become more receptive having their photo taken. Or maybe it was just a good hair day. Or who knows? 5 days later I got punched after shooting the wrong hipster. But it was funny watching her fall over while drunkenly trying to run away as I "called the cops"....there is danger warned should you attempt this at home.  Onto the goods. If you have a moment please let me know which ones you like, or even don't like. email is
keep shooting and thanks for visiting! P.S...some have captions...

"hey that's an awesome coat mind if I get a photo?"
"ok but hurry I am late to work"
"perfect, that orange really rocks with the doorway colors and frame."
 "no, I don't mind, take my picture"
I was scared to ask as he was about 6'5 and looked straight out of a mob movie.
The red coffee truck background was pure lagniappe.

 "you wan't to take MY picture? Really? Why?"
"well, you look nice and that wall is a nice background"
 "I don't need a card, I'll remember your site."
definitely from out of town

Hey y'all, thanks for making it by. Most all of these are from March 8th 2012- a day off! What better way to spend it then to take the camera on an extended walk downtown and then over to South Congress. I had the good fortune to run into Kirk Tuck, professional photographer. Conversation was informative, enlightening and the walking was great. He is a really nice fellow who has a knack for engaging strangers! Needless to say I picked up a few ideas on how to improve my technique. Keep Shooting, 

p.s. been listening to this on repeat a lot while out shooting. And of course, click on any image to see it BIGGER!

hey ya

ran across the street to frame this in time
Have a good day!
