Hidden in a park right in Uptown by the Galleria, the Water Wall is a huge 64 ft tall U-shaped fountain. The park is a great spot to take the kids, walk the dog, or have a picnic on a nice day. You may even catch a proposal or two while you're there!
So I recently picked up the Mavic Pro to add a new perspective to my photography. After some short flights from my front yard, this is quickly becoming my favorite camera and here are some of my first impressions of this drone.
To start, it's incredibly easy to fly. The controls are intuitive and it's so compact that it's really easy to bring around anywhere. It flies incredibly smooth and stable as long as it's not too windy out. It's so solid that you can even do some long exposures while the Mavic hovers in the air.
So far, the only downside that I have for it is that the low light performance is not that great and the noise creeps in pretty quickly once you start raising the ISO past 400, but it's kind of expected due to the size of the sensor. All in all, its a very minor trade off for all of the other features you're getting with it.
If you're in the market for a drone, the Mavic Pro is definitely my top choice due to how small and compact it is. It will easily go with me in my travel bag when I take trips and it gives me a completely different way to take photos.
With my nephew's first birthday quickly approaching, there was no better way to document this momentous occasion than with a family photoshoot. Besides, I knew that Vicki wanted to use some photos as decorations for Braxton's Mickey-themed birthday party. He looked like a little man dressed up in his button-down shirt and jeans. It's been a privilege to be able to document these precious moments.
For the past few years, Discovery Green in downtown Houston has supported a variety of art installations. Enchanted Promenade is a collection of giant peony bouquets lit up by color-changing LEDs. The Enchanted Promenade is on view until February 23, 2017, so be sure to go check it out before its gone!
Before the Super Bowl came into town, Discovery Green housed another installation. It was called Firmament by Christopher Schardt, who is known for his art installations at Burning Man. Firmament was a large canopy of LED lights that continuously changed along with a musical track.
There's always something good at Discovery Green. Be sure to check back in with Discovery Green's website to see what their latest installations are!
The the Museum of Fine Arts Houston and the Buffalo Bayou Partnership came together and organized the very first art installation in the Houston Cistern. If you're new to my blog or are unfamiliar with the Cistern, you can see photos of it here in my previous post.
Rain by Magdalena Fernandez consists of a light show that is projected throughout the entire space with an acoustic soundtrack that is meant to mimic the sounds of a rain shower. It runs on a loop and the tour takes you around the outer perimeter of the Cistern to get different view points as you walk around.
This seems to be the first of a series of changing art installations in the Cistern and I'm excited to see what's to come in the future. Rain is on view until June 4th. If you go on a Thursday, admission is free so be sure to reserve your tickets to make sure you save a spot!
