This blog has been a holding site for the last couple of years as I found out more about myself and where I want to be going forward. After 15 years growing a photography studio, I finally decided to go back to doing what I loved, art. Over the last couple of years, I… Continue reading More water than anything
One of my biggest problems with art is that I seem to delve into the technical side of the medium until I am exhausted. I do this with photography, music, painting and even cooking.

Well, this week we started a new pool build. As any photographer would do, I am documenting it via time-lapse on my GoPro Hero 5. The Camera is cool compared to my original GoPro that was clunky and unreliable. The video looks nice, and the use of GoPro Capture makes managing the files and settings… Continue reading Building a Pool in Houston
