Ironman and mom

We were in the Woodlands this weekend to support our son, Charles, in his second Ironman competition.
This shot is after he had completed the swim and the 112-mile bike run and was on the second of three 8 mile loops in the marathon part of the event.  He slowed down to walk a few feet with mom, Linda, who is obviously beam
ing.  He finished in 12 hours and 24 minutes

Fighting heat and drought in a puddle

This is a scene I shot a couple years ago down along the coastal highway in Cameron Parish, LA.  There was a strong drought and small ponds like these were lucky just to be puddles.  Notice that the boat in the foreground had probably been underwater at one time when it filled with silt.  The crabs looked to have died baking in the sun. This Rail (possibly a King Rail?) was still trying to eke out a living in this shrinking ecosphere.

Squirrelly encourter of the friendly kind

My little friend at work found a peanut and wasn't going to put it down.  Not even when I pointed a camera at him.

Tattered, strewn sky

This is just one more look at that jigsawed sunset that spread out like a lint-covered ceiling a couple weeks ago.
