Painting a pond in The Woodlands

It was a nice morning for art by the pond. The Woodlands has nice little community ponds that add to the homeyness.  And of course, being The Woodlands, they’re surrounded by trees.

So, I headed out and met a nice woman enjoying the scenery. I hope to see her painting on display at a local gallery. I’m sure we’ll meet again.

If you click on this picture, you’ll get to see the painted effect better.  Here, it’s too small to see.

Lake Mead, Nevada

Lake Mead is a huge reservoir a few miles East of Las Vegas.  The reservoir is created by the Hoover Dam holding back the Colorado River.  There was a drought when we were there making the lake level low.

At a little pier, you can rent boats for everything from fishing to swimming.  You can even rent big house boats for a weekend on the lake.

My Lake Mead photo and more photographic prints are available on


Siamese Twins

Siamese Twins, Cheng and Eng

Thailand is, of course, the home of the original “Siamese Twins” (recall Thailand was formerly called Siam).  They are celebrated (mostly for the tourists sake) in Phuket, Thailand.  Phuket is a popular tourist destination in Thailand.

This picture makes me smile so I thought it an appropriate celebration for the re-launch of the site.
