Duncan the Baby Elephant

Duncan is a 9-week old baby Asian elephant, born earlier this year at the Houston Zoo. He weighed 385 pounds at birth (apparently that's a lot even for an elephant), and he's added over 100 pounds since then. The weather was really nice today, and he was obviously enjoying himself using him mom's legs as an obstacle course.

Thank you +Frank Walsh ! The angles formed by the legs and the triangular shape of Duncan's head/trunk are what popped out at me while I was looking through the viewfinder (the end image is slightly cropped for emphasis). Of course on the less artistic side of things: it's pretty tough to take a bad picture of a baby elephant (or baby anything really) :)

Either way I'm glad you like it!

+Dave Beckerman posted his Newsstand photo a few hours ago. I bought a darkroom print from him back in 2000 and I thought he might like to see it in the wild. It's an amazing photo and an incredibly detailed and interesting print.

The print below it is one of his as well, purchased years later.

Sophie got to go for a run on the beach in Galveston last weekend. I know dogs can't really smile, but I still think this photo captures the happiest soul in the universe at that moment.

Old Tree Triptych

These stumps have been under Lake Travis near Austin TX for who knows how long. Lake Travis has dropped 20+ feet over the last few years though, so they're on dry ground once again.

This is only my forth winter in California, but it's the third dry winter in a row. I've seen satellite images from Northern California, comparing the current snowpack (which is non-existent) with that of the previous winter (where most of Northern Cali was covered in snow), it's pretty scary... I expect prices for produce to go up a LOT since so much of it comes from California's central valley...

New Echinacea

Coneflowers have to be one of the more weird flowers out there. It looks like a Sarlacc from Star Wars (minus the wavy octopus arms).

Even though it's a heavily-filtered nighttime cell-phone shot (not all the grain is artificial), I think this worked out well. I particularly like the row of lights in the background.

I've been fooling around with square format images in an attempt to learn something new. Can't say I'm really a fan, but this image seems to work (I think, maybe, possibly).

ps - more real camera photos coming soon :)

But, FWIW, I like the square format. For images in portrait orientation, I also like 4:5 very much. The 35mm-typical 3:2 aspect ratio is just wrong for portraits, IMHO. :)

It is really difficult to make a phone camera take an out-of-focus picture nowadays. A few years ago that's all they could do, but now it's actually kind of a pain.

I took this at the Houston Rodeo carnival a couple of nights ago. Carnival rides have gotten a lot more involved (and scary) since I was a kid. You couldn't pay me to get on most of them :)

I took this on a warm day in Austin last November. I've been using it as the background on my tablet, kind of as an anti-winter thing. I don't know about everyone else but I am ready for warmer weather.

Camouflage!

Sort of. Also it's tough to take her seriously with her tongue hanging out.

It's for sale at http://fineartamerica.com/featured/camouflage-ethan-anderson.html All proceeds go to Sophie's cookie fund.

A bit touristy, but the food is good. The lobster mash potatoes are great, but that's a low bar. The swordfish was a little overcome by the capers and olives, but was still good. Excellent service, though the great location and view are definitely included in the prices.

Cool, sophisticated decor with good drinks and reasonable prices. A very unique bar, definitely a nice break from the usual Santa Monica sports bars.

Solid burgers, large portions, and real ice cream shakes. This is the best restaurant at IAH.

Beautiful pizzas. The pizza dough is the star of the show. Light, crunchy crust that you won't leave in a pile on your plate. The goat cheese appetizer was excellent as well, and the bread was perfect. Nice place, attentive service, and awesome pizza definitely deserving of 5 stars.

Outstanding (if a bit expensive) food and absolutely stellar service. The staff are fast, very friendly, and totally professional. The tall ceilings, wood paneled walls, and enormous bar give plenty of visual interest. One of the best restaurants in Santa Monica.
