Oops.. I dropped the ball for a few days. To be honest, I was working hard the whole time... you see, besides having 2 wonderful daughters (ages 3 and 3 months) and a full-time job that is awesome, I am also an entertainment writer on the side. I'm actually the editor of Austin's INsite Magazine. I was on deadline. So.. that's my excuse.

OK.. two excuses. the other is, I was working on my entries into the San Marcos Naturescapes contest. It's a photo contest put on by the Hill Country Photography Club . I entered 8 photos. The new part of the competition granted me the ability to enter a photo from anywhere in Hays County (of which Kyle is part). So... I entered this as one of my two in that category:

It's a photo I took of my daughter, Marlee, as she played in wildflowers.
I'll post my second Hays County entry tomorrow.
Happy Monday.

This is where streets come from.

Side Note
A few days ago, "Kate" commented on my field of sunflowers: Thank You Ladybird.. I thought I'd reply here... since I usually don't go back and check on responses to my blog responses on other's pages...

Thank You Ladybird indeed.
For those who aren't in the "know" Claudia Taylor "Lady Bird" Johnson, wife of Lyndon B. Johnson - the 36th president of the United States. She passed away on 7/11/07. In her lifetime she was a large advocate of beautification of public lands and I'd venture to say her contributions are why I can take such mediocre photos of awesome wildflowers today.

If I knew how to fix cars, I'd probably own one of these. But, I don't so I'll just own the photo. I didn't get a great look at this one.. but it may be a Plymouth Hudson. Anyone else know?

FOGgit 'bout it

On my way to work on Tuesday I was greeted with limited sight from the road. I thought since I was already hindered in my vision, I may as well take photos. I mean, since I wasn't talking on my cell phone I had a free hand.

It's a Sign!

Actually... it's a sign telling you that there is a sign coming up.
Where's the sign to warn that THAT sign is going to be there?

(I'm on a funny kick the last few days....)

Austin? Nope.. Kyle.
By the lake? Nope... by Burleson Road.... on the frontage of IH-35 near exit 206 southbound.
(Actually that's the name of the Realtor... but you really have to read the small print (which looks like a line under "Lake" to know that)

My daughter is now 3 months old.
No, she's not THAT big of a baby... I just took it at a funky angle. She looked very cute in her baby bikini.
By the way.. that is my incredibly sexy wife holding the little flower.

Summertime... and the living is easy

Five Mile Dam in Kyle is a nice relaxing spot.

If you can see this... last year it was not so relaxing.

Rain is a good thing.

It's pretty. It's Friday the 13.

The Wells Fargo Bank is being built...down the street.. oh please let the photos inside be by me....

I've not heard from these guys.... but last contact I had was they would be using Kyle Texas Daily Photo shots for a mural on the inside of this bank.... which will be open soon...

Not soon enough!

I beat my co-worker at "Whack A Mole" at lunch (Mr. Gatti's) last week. I won a dolphin.
Here it is (and check out another of Kyle's water towers in the background).

This kind of typifies this area. This is the Performing Arts Center that opened a few years ago... right next to a working farm (see the round bales?).

Saturday, July 07, 2007

If there's only two choices is still called a "fork" in the road... or a prong?

Either way... this is the onramp to IH-35 near exit 215. I was about to get on. I had my camera. You see what happened.

What's So Good About Rain?

Rain has brought fields and fields of yellow wildflowers to the area. Pretty. This week we'll call them "Nature's Fireworks"
Happy Friday.

Wednesday, July 04, 2007

Happy Independence Day everyone.
I hear the fireworks going on outside... legal schmegal.

Tuesday, July 03, 2007

Happy day beofre 4th of July.
No fireworks please.
(Actually, most of the surrounding citie cancelled their fireworks displays due to weather... but that doesn't efect Kyle, who had their fireworks last Saturday. Good thinkin' Kyleites!

Beautiful Downtown Kyle

Remember that "Pardon Our Progress" sign I took a photo of a few weeks back? Well... Welcome to the "progress." It's a pain in the rear to navigate... and downtown businesses have completely lost their parking for now... but let's hope that it's worth it. Beauty is painful sometimes...

“Into each life some rain must fall, some days must be dark and dreary.”
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Rainbow Connection
Why are there so many songs about rainbows
and what's on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
and rainbows have nothing to hide.
So we've been told and some choose to believe it.
I know they're wrong, wait and see.
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection.
The lovers, the dreamers and me.

Who said that every wish would be heard
and answered when wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that and someone believed it.
Look what it's done so far.
What's so amazing that keeps us star gazing
and what do we think we might see?
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection.
The lovers, the dreamers and me.

All of us under its spell. We know that it's probably magic.

Have you been half asleep and have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name.
Is this the sweet sound that called the young sailors.
The voice might be one and the same.
I've heard it too many times to ignore it.
It's something that I'm supposed to be.
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection.
The lovers, the dreamers and me.
