Chasing the sunset!

I got stuck behind a slow car as I was darting to the park to try and beat the sun from setting on me! :)

Daily blog is back!

So after being discouraged by unnamed person for almost a year... the DAILY blog is back!!! yay!

Going to a barter assignment I left a little bit early and found this awesome orange/grapefruit stand!

Rigo Tamayo, 62, is from the Valley and drives the 500 miles to Fort Worth every week to sell his seasonal fruits of oranges, grapefruits and watermelon and has been doing so for the past 12 years. Tamayo usually drives up with a few others at the beginning of the week and stay at a local hotel for the week before returning home for the weekend, only to make the trip again the next week.

My barter assignment didn't want his stuff published anywhere, but here's a scene from that shoot that doesn't give anything away! :)

Ready and waiting.

Well... my freelance career doesn't start until after Thanksgiving now it seems. I am momentarily stuck in Austin for another week. I love Austin, but I was ready to start working about a week ago. A few random things that I have photographed in the last few days.

Cain- Cain Cocteau with a few of his Cocteau Twins items.

Sahara- The cute puppy that likes to beg and watch you when you eat!

The future plans of Thao...

So whats next for a recently graduated photojournalist? Well, I've realized that I cannot work for newspapers full time... porque? Ever since traveling to Europe with my parents I have caught the incurable travel bug!

The new game plan? I'll be hanging out in DFW freelancing and shooting weddings with the newly offered partnership position. The reason for choosing to go freelance? I want to be able to take a month off each year to do whatever I want. It will mostly consist of traveling, shooting and NGO's... so for now I have found the resolution of for my hunger to shoot humanitarian efforts! yay! (I'm also applying to the UN...)

A few pictures from my birthday weekend at WurstFest in New Braunfels, TX, dinner at Dick's last resort on the Riverwalk and paintballing south of San Antonio, TX. Enjoy! (any picture that I am in, Sal shot)
