Three Amigos with appearance by El Guapo and Hefe

This year the kids leaned towards the Three Amigos. Julie always does a good job of creating costumes. Kids got lots of smiles at Boo at the Zoo this year, Yvette and Harlan's party and Trunk or Treat at the church last night.

Last year we were the Oompa Loompa's. You can backtrack to Nov. 2010 on this blog to see those images.

Lone Star Football Festival at Cowboys Stadium

Saturday was one busy day for the Lone Star Conference.

The Lone Star Football Festival was a triple header at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington featuring Midwestern State University vs. Texas A&M Commerce University, Abilene Christian University vs. University of North Alabama and West Texas A&M University vs Texas A&M Kingsville University.

The fisheye image at midfield was captured during the coin toss of the Midwestern vs. Commerce game. I triggered the camera remotely. Luckily the coin never landed on the camera lens. Much appreciative of the head referee to allow me to place a camera at midfield.

The first ever event was first class with over 24,000 in attendance. Many thanks to Stan Wagnon, Melanie Robotham, Jay Poerner, Travis Whipple, Melissa Williams, Ron Hadfield and Lance Fleming.

Summer of 2011

Today will break the record of the most triple digit heat days in a summer for North Texas. To document this glorious occasion the Enlow family decided on a group portrait. We searched for the driest looking field which brought us to far West Texas near the town of Lamesa. We decided to go bare foot for the shoot. Dirt was so dang hot we could only last about 5 minutes.

August assignments

Usually August is one of my slowest months of the year for photo shoots. This year I had above average of shoots booked for the month. Got to do some great things with Ardent Creative for a couple of different law firms. Cook Children's and University of North Texas Health Science Center always have fun subjects with good art directors on the shoot. Always excited to get the call from Meda at 360 West magazine as no such thing as a so-so assignment with her. Randy and Allison at Texas A&M Central Texas are such fun to be around. I'm really blessed to have such great clients!!

Is it possible to find cool relief in August.....Yes!

Been in Cloudcroft, New Mexico last week or so. Celebrating Julie’s birthday and enjoying the nice weather. Staying at Julie’s parents cabin with one of the best views I’ve ever seen from a porch. This is the way to spend record temperatures in Texas.

Top 10 list of what it’s like to be in the mountains right now instead of Texas

10. Sipping on hot tea instead of ice tea.
9. Having to shut some windows at night to remove the chill.
8. Actually enjoying soup for lunch.
7. Sleeping with at least 3 blankets.
6. Temperature warmed up to 76 one day and it actually felt hot for a little bit.
5. Having trouble making sun tea because of rain.
4. Walking down the street soaked in a cool rain instead of sweat.
3. Fishing in the middle of a spring fed river that feels like walking thru the snow naked.
2. Walmart truly is the one stop shop with aisles of liquor next to the dairy aisle.
1. Driving in the jeep with the top down, wearing coats and the heater on full blast and the kid’s teeth are still chattering.

Photo above is one Noah shot of us in a freezing cold waterfall on the spring fed Rio Penasco river on the Runyan Ranch near Mayill, New Mexico. Joined the Mesilla Valley Flyfishers who have secured nearly 2 miles of fishing access on the Rio Penasco.

Missle Range

Wasn't expecting to see anything interesting while driving thru this area today. About 5 miles from this sign an unmanned drone flew right over our car. Those things are much bigger than I imagined.

Father/Son day at Work

Been working so much lately thought I'd take Noah to work with me today.

Had a morning shoot in downtown Dallas on the 51st floor in the Bank of America building. Noah really liked the ride up that elevator.

Assignment was an attorney at the law firm. Noah was in charge of finding electrical outlets and holding the Ipad and showing the images to the attorney. He is really good at both.

Afterwards had some nice lunch prepared by Brian Olenjack. His crabcakes are amazing!

Congrats Yvette and Harlan

Always fun when the first baby of a family is born. Congrats Yvette and Harlan on the birth of Baron. Yvette is one of my favorite art directors. Harlan is just overall a fun guy.

Daddy Day during storm

Can you tell Julie is away from the house this afternoon? Little fun with Noah and Clara during a little storm Friday afternoon. Hail wasn't that big but popping noise on the umbrella was fun.

Hail Damage at our place April 25, 2011

I'm not very good and fixing things that break. However I can sure as heck document the destruction. Just after midnight on Easter we woke to a massive hail storm outside. Wow that was loud. Or roof is a complete loss. The studio roof will also need to be replaced. Roofer came by today and said in his 30 years of doing roofs this is the second worse damage he has seen. Everyone including chickens are safe. We lost though at least five birds and sure to find more. Just a couple of weeks ago Jorge did such a good job getting all the fall leaves out of the property. He is going to have a fit when he comes back to mow. You can't even see the grass under the trees the twigs and leaves are so thick.
