I'm Back!!!!!

The drought is over. I was doing so well with blogging and posting photos. But, I went M.I.A. for a bit. Not really missing just not writing. Went out to Los Angeles for a couple of days. The weather was perfect and the scenery was amazing. I was able to take some photos while I was there. I was staying in Hollywood and it is true what they say about homeless people being everywhere. I did enjoy the area though. Interesting people all around and so much to see.

The huge irony of the entire trip was the place I visited where the most interesting people were and the most action was I didn’t take one photo. Venice Beach is a street photographers dream, and I didn’t feel like taking any photographs while I was there. I was too busy enjoying it all and taking everything in. But that just gives me more reason to get back and visit. The longer I am away from LA the more I want to get back to visit. That is usually how it happens though. I go somewhere and can’t wait to get back home. As soon as I get back home, I can’t wait to get back to where I just visited. I’m sure it will always be like that.

A Day At The Museum...

Whenever I am in Kansas City I try to make it to the Nelson-Atkins museum. The first time I went was around 20 years ago. I knew it was a good museum because it had a Van Gogh. Outside of that, I really didn’t know a lot of the artists. But I always appreciated the fine art that was inside. But….

fast forward a couple of years. I began to realize that this museum has so many masterpieces and has some of the best artists works. Plus the best thing is on the weekends… it is free! Where else can you walk in and see works of arts from Caravaggio, Van Gogh, Monet, Andy Warhol, Dorthea Lange, Jackson Pollack and Cezanne… all for free! If you haven’t ever been go! If you have… then do yourself a favor and go again.

Back...

Been slacking the last couple of days. Been traveling and working. Got back form Puerto Vallarta, Mexico last week. It was an amazing trip. The food and drinks were cheap. The scenery was beautiful. The people were friendly and warming. I am ready to go back! I was able to get some photo taking in while I was there. Shot ten rolls of film. Still processing them, but here are some of my favorites so far. You can also check out more photos from Puerto Vallarta by click the link right below this. IT is good to be back back blogging!

Kansas Travels... Rock City

Just a couple mile past Minneapolis, Kansas you will find Rock City.  It is a bit strange to see all those rock formations in the middle of a field.  Even though they are just big rock formations, you find yourself spending quite a long time looking at them.  Also I had to go and look and each individual one.  They are all similar, but each one has its own distinct character.  The price is 3 dollars, but half of them are located before the gift shop so you can park your car and enjoy them without having to pay.  Also take a lunch and half a picnic!  There are plenty of tables to sit and take in all the scenery!

Pool...

I have not shot pool in easily 10 years. But somehow I found myself out and about shooting pool. Got in some photos on an artist I have seen perform around town named Wody. We talked music, Wichita and hip-hop. I had passed by the place we went to hundreds of times. Crazy how you can see something, pass by it and not think twice about it. So it was cool to finally go in. Needless to say I was horrible at playing pool.
