2017 Goals

Just like my Groundhog Day resolutions, I need photography goals. I know that I shoot from the hip but a part of me needs more as well. The following goals are in no order other than what is in my head.
  • Finish this website. Streamline it and make it professional again.
  • Organize, once and for all, the Archives.
  • Shoot more film. My Holga is collecting dust and I am neglecting her.
  • Re-define who I am as a person and then translate this to my photography
  • What is the purpose of my photography? I’ve asked and received mixed results.
  • Add emotional impact to my work.
  • Continue to share my knowledge, to learn and to grow from my peers such as the Texas Shooters photography group

Donnellan Crypt

A crypt from the 1800s can still be seen under the Franklin St Bridge on Buffalo Bayou. The area contained un-exploded artillery from the Confederate days.

In 1866, the Donnellan brothers found one of the unexploded bombs and accidentally blew it up while handling it. Their crypt was built right into the south bank of the bayou.

Donnellan’s Crypt red brick entrance can still be seen under the bridge to this day.

To this day there’s never been a professional cleanup to find the rest of the weaponry.
