This photo sorta goes with my last post (Sir Jack;Old English Bulldog). Amos was sitting in the window the entire time Jack was having his portrait done watching the whole process. I’m not sure if Amos was Jealous (I doubt it since cats always know they are really in charge) or simply waiting for his close up.
Jack is an Old English Bulldog that was in need of a formal portrait. Due to his very busy social schedule I only had a short period between state functions to shoot his photograph. Despite his rather professional demeanor I found him exceptionally charming and quite warm. (I probably shouldn’t spoil his “tough guy” image but he was quite friendly & greeted me immediately with repeated wet slobbery kisses.)
Last night I had the opportunity to do some photography of the Austin skyline after dark for a long time client. I decided to get to the location early to grab some personal pre-sunset images as well, and shot this while I was waiting. I’m not sure, but the client may decide they like this better than their original vision. We shall see…
One thing that is obvious (if you look close) is the cranes have returned to Austin. Not the pretty flying kind but the big ugly steel ones. You can see where work has begun on at least one large project. It seemed like it took years of waiting to get a shot of the Austin skyline without numerous cranes in the shot. Finally, last year the skyline was (relatively) crane free. It looks like those days are over as the ‘progress’ continues.
