Sometimes this seems like my second studio. I've shot so many assignments at Zach Theatre. Currently packing up to photograph the Tech and Dress Rehearsals for "Ann."

Like any relationship that's gone on for a long time there are things that rub me the wrong way about the theater but on the whole there's a lot more stuff that makes me smile. It's pretty easy to do the math. Almost all in the plus column. And what can I do at this late stage? I already feel like part of the family.

This is not a commissioned shot. I was out for a walk and it's convenient to park nearby. On my way back to my car I was just in the right spot at what I think was the right time and I took this photo with a Fuji X-E3 and the marvelous, little 18-55mm f2.8 to f4.0 kit lens.

Love it when nature gets the clouds and the sky just right.

The play, "Ann", by Holland Taylor, starts sometime in the middle of next week and I can't wait to see the rehearsals. I've already photographed and videotaped the star, Libby Villari, and she's got the character nailed.

How do I know? I did some photography with Gov. Richards; even an ad project. Now I can vouch for it when people get the character right....
The real Ann Richards.

It is a really good photo. Although it has some faults that wouldn't be acceptable years ago, it is a sample of first class architectural photography in today's world.

I suggest you contact Fuji and ask for a shift lens. That's all you need to make it absolutely perfect!

Today’s “Duh!” moment: I looked at the second picture and thought, “Wow - she really does look like Ann Richards!”.

I just saw Bill's "ask" for a Fuji shift lens. Sure, I need that. I can put off that surgery. Ramen noodles for a couple of years? Sure! I'll take my granny camping for three months then check her back into the nursing home. No problem.
