I Missed My Flight - 24 Hrs in ATL

How does one miss their flight??  By accidentally not checking their flight itinerary gate and time... 2 hrs before the scheduled flight... yeah... not intentional lol.  BUT, it worked out because a friend let me crash at his place for a night.  I also had time to explore a little before flying back home to Houston... I was actually flying from The Arnold Classic d[...]

"Where did you go in Taipei? How much cash should you bring to explore Taipei?  What was the food like?"  Explore Taipei (2017) answers these questions and more with visuals from my Nikon D750 and iPhone 6.  Something is a little different with my Wordpress blog... it isn't hosted by Wordpress anymore!  Now powered by SiteGround, I'm able to own my own domain and h[...]

Day Trip to Austin, TX - 50mm Life

Austin, TX - "hill country" or the capitol of Texas, is about 2 - 2.5 hrs away from Houston depending where you're driving from.  I had planned to make a day trip to Austin for awhile now, but found a reason to do it much sooner...I had bought a set of wheels online from a seller in California.  The plan was to get some friends to pick up the wheels and ship them [...]

Journey to the West - Part 2

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” ― Mark Twain With so much going on in the world right, everyone needs to chill, and take a trip somew[...]

Journey to the West - Part 1

“Nothing in this world is difficult, but thinking makes it seem so. Where there is true will, there is always a way.” - Wu Cheng'en, Monkey: The Journey to the West One of my goals this year was to make a road trip to California and attend a track day, but with my last minute freelance booking schedule, it was difficult... or was it?  Normally, if I had downtim[...]

Tommy Le's Toyota MR2 AW11 "Drive" Themed Shoot

What happens when you spot one of the coolest retro Toyota's driving through Houston's Vietnam Town aka Bellaire?  You snapchat it of course...  ....then you get the idea of a night themed "Drive" shoot.  That's when I asked Tommy Le or @tommyflyby on snapchat if he was down for a shoot. Of course he was up for it so we exchanged contacts and set up a shoot date an[...]
