2.22.12 Water at the Coffee Bar

There is water at the Coffee Bar! Stop by to see a new collection of my water themed photographs on display at the iconic Warwick Hotel's coffee shop. Formal artist reception details will be announced soon. In the mean time trek on over, crab a cup of joe (or a beer, they have a great selection!) and enjoy the images. 

The above image, Always on My Mind, is a favorite from years past. I was just entering photography school when I took a weekend trip to the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge near my folks home in Rockport, TX. While standing on a short pier looking for birds I heard this loud sort of exhale right below me and turned down just in time to catch this massive alligator rising slowly like a submarine... so cool and creepy at the same time. Seconds after I shot this my lens cap fell right on it's snout with the Canon label clearly visible! I went to shoot it with the vision of selling it to Canon and wouldn't you know it I had reached the end of my last roll of film... for that reason and many others this moment is always on my mind. 

Sadly the frame broke in route to the Coffee Bar and it didn't get hung, but you can all see it here. :)

Wanna know how I know my wife really really loves me? She let me take her to a sewer on our honeymoon! While in Vienna we went on a tour (in German no less!) of the sewer system that plays such an central roll in one of my all time favorite movies, The Third Man. 

Not too much back story to this gem. I was living on the Delaware and during a break between storms I wondered out to capture some images. Other chilly visions from the area can be seen in this gallery: Winter in Titusville

Keep an eye out for the date of the artist reception and come here me tell more stories about these and other images on display.
