Memorial Day

When my parents and I went on our annual Memorial Day gravesite vist, we dropped by the oldest cemetary in Houston. There are lots of Texas war heroes buried here, but what I was most drawn to was how many stones just said "unknown" and what struck me was that these "unknowns" are likely to be just as heroic or more as the others.

We all seeem to seek more and more recognition in life and it seems that we just die trying, but does any of all that really matter in the end? I think there's a little more to life than all the purple hearts, medals and glory.

Samuel May Williams House

What a treat it was to photograph "the oldest residential house in Galveston" My client/designer Jannele Thomson invited me to photograph her work at the top floor of the house pictured here. The Galveston Historical Foundation will be offering home tours this weekend and the best part is they ware looking to lease it for a mear 1,800 per month!
