Kickapoo Ranch Pet Resort

Kickapoo Ranch is a brand spanking new, full service pet PALACE out in the Waller/Cypress TX area. I got to shoot the new facility just as it was opening and getting the finishing touches. Check back in the spring for updated pics of the exterior, but for now here's a preview of the property and a good view of the interior space.

Antiques Anyone?

This past week I got the opportunity to shoot the products in an amazing French antique shop here in Houston... Joyce Horn Antiques. As a photographer I could have easily spent all day in there, there was so much great stuff! Including their little mascot, Beemer.

NEW TOY!

If there is one thing that makes any photographer jump for joy, it's getting a new toy. Today's object of affection is a new (to me) lens for my Leica M9. It's a pre-owned mint Elmarit 90mm f/2.8, which is no longer in production but is still a quite popular lens which is getting harder to find, even on the used market. When I received it the focus was a bit out of whack so I shipped it off to Essex Camera Service is New Jersey. They did a fantastic job and had it back to me in just a few days! Of course I grabbed my trusty model for the first few test shots, but expect to see a lot more examples from this Leica M9/Lens combo in the near future. So far I'm just loving the way it renders. Beautiful colors right out of the box, sharp as heck (thanks to Essex) and creamy creamy bokeh (out of focus area).
Just chillin

Wally - New Pics

Time for a few new pics of "Wally", our Australian Labradoodle Puppy. He's about 5 months old now. Still not sure he understands why I keep sticking this big piece of black metal and glass in his face.
