Let's go to the prehistoric gardens

What do you do when it's over 90 degrees outside...in July...in Texas? TAKE A PRODUCTION COMPANY OUT TO THE JUNGLE TO DO HEADSHOTS! 

After scouting several locations, we settled on the prehistoric area of Zilker Botanical Gardens. Everybody brought several changes of clothes to (...sweat through...) change into, and off we went!

Revelator is a film and video production company based here, in Austin, TX, and I can say without question that each person in the company is a trooper and a master of dealing with heat. We brought a couple of people down to the set at a time to minimize human melting issues. I'd like to give a special shout out to Production Coordinator Hannah Murphy and to Kleenex Hand Towels for keeping everyone shine free. Also, a friendly hello to the big turtle and the lizards who visited the set and kept us entertained that day. 

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you REVELATOR...


The Gams of a Cowboy

I got to have a little weekend away recently at my cousin's place over in Oatmeal, TX. And yes, there is a giant canister of Oatmeal in town. See photo at left, courtesy of Tim Griffin (@griffinshot). 

After staying at the house for a whole day, I realized I had been looking at this statue (below) the whole time oblivious to the fact that there was originally a body that had been on top of these legs. Upon finding said body, I decided I liked it more just as it was. A study in calf-ature.
