Nighttime Drive

Dyl and I decided to capture Abilene while she sleeps. We played with the neon lights and visited Masteño, Luis Jiménez's sculpture of a wild horse. Some people believe that Jiménez created these horses as the Horses of the Apocalypse. For those who do not know, Jiménez is the artist of the horse that stands before the Denver International Airport. If your curiosity is peaked, check out Sinister Sites.

Dyl and I searched for sinister sights throughout abilene, but found very little other than a full moon. What we did find was how different recognizable places in Abilene look during the day. The dinosaur looking into the Volkswagon Beatle atop the parking garage for The Grace Museum looked as funny as ever, and Dyl was constantly searching for something to shoot.

Dyl and I visited the Episcopal Church of the Heavenly Rest on South 7th and Amarillo. The church was established in 1883.

Before long, Dyl and I were back on the north side of Abilene shooting the First Baptist Church on North 3rd. We talked and laughed as we photographed the sights. We shared stories over a Dr. Pepper at the North Side Sonic before we decided it was time to call it a night. This evening was a great bonding experience with my baby boy.

Sunset at 103°F

Dyl and I decided to take a drive to the end of the world, or rather, the country, so we could watch the sun set. It was still 103°F, which made for a beautiful sunset. What a nice way to end an evening with my boy.

I also, allowed Dyl to drive to the end of the road. He practically scared the piss out of me when he almost did not stop at the end of the road.

New Tattoo

DJ and I are hanging out here in Midland together. DJ got me this tattoo for Mother's Day. It has the Sun and Moon on it for my children. Damien is my sun, and Dylan is my moon.
