It's funny, when you think about your hands. They have done so much.. but still they have done nothing. They have so much left to do. A whole life's worth. What will they do? Will they work, will they be idle? Will you create with them? Destroy with them? You can give them to someone else for a while use them to help or to harm. There's really a lot of pressure on your hands, you hold the whole weight of your future with them. Remember what you use your hands for, make sure you're using them to accomplish the right things. I have a lot left to accomplish with mine, so much work to do, so many people to help, so many things to create. I hold my future in my hands.

It's been a while G+ I hope I've been missed! I haven't done much for photography but I was recently quoted in an awesome book full of great photographers  you should all buy a copy its called How We See It. I attached the link http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/3674785

The approach is a bit crude but i really think its a worthy cause to those who are interested in teaching future generations about an amazing and brilliant man, one of my personal heroes.

Funny what you can find if you look more closely, taken in half moon bay on a morning stroll.

Does anybody know a good place to rent lenses and camera equipment?

Oh you weary traveler
 come take a seat
oh weary traveler
don't you see?
I was made just for you
for this day
built so sturdy and true
so you could come my way
lay down your worries and rest
lay down your weariness and rest
just rest.

This was taken on my first photowalk, +Trey Ratcliff had been hosting in Austin but after that got rained out i decided to venture out with my camera the next day. On my adventures through the hustle and bustle of the Texas capitol I ran in to these amazing couple. They are small business owners operating one of the many food carts in the city, and they cook up some awesome barbecue. these were some honest hard working people that I had the pleasure of photographing.

This fellow was quite the character, he always wore a smile... maybe that's something we need more of.
