houston, san antonio, houston, san antonio, austin, san antonio, houston

well the houston leg of our trip is over and that only leaves la and sf! my little mini vacation in sf is kind of my carrot dangling at the end of this show, i can hardly wait. houston (actually texas city) was a little dry and found myself cutting my hair shorter and shorter and hanging out in the b grade mall across the parking lot. can you imagine a mall without a gap even?

well i thought i do some personal traveling and rented a car yesterday, sadly no covertible like i wanted, and i'm almost set to go. i'm taking a day trip to the uber trendy austin for some sightseeing, a meeting, dinner, ect. and plan on coming back tonight. tomorrow i go back to houston, but houston for real, not some third ring suburb. texas city to houston is like chaska to minneapolis, yikes indeed. well i have a posh hotel reservation, tickets for fischerspooner and plans to to meet up with a friend when he gets off wiork at the sushi restuarant that he gm's.

also if you apprecite fine art photography you must, must, must check out the new book by david hilliard, recently published by aperture. ohhhhhhhhhhh it so good and hilliard is such a genius and a seemingly genuine wonderful gay man. he is what i want to be when i grow up. seeing his work in portland and a handful of other experiences has really set my brain on fire and i've been pretty motivated and excited about getting my own photography back out there, more details forthcoming.........

oh my god fischerspooner i am so totally jealous. but that's a mean feeling isn't it? i guess it's more like i'm just really excited to hear about it so i can pretend i went too.
