A few months back a friend ask if I would like to meet her and her boys downtown Houston for the Architects of Air, temporary display. I had no idea what it was about but I grabbed my camera, plugged in the GPS coordinates and was down at the discovery green, across from the convention center in less than 45 minutes. I am always up for a new adventure and when I saw my photos I was ecstatic that I’d said yes.
Sitting out in the middle of the green was a huge, somewhat ugly, unassuming blown-up balloon.
After standing in line to pay, then again waiting our turn to enter as another group left; we entered the greeting area, sat on a bench to remove our shoes, to leave them out on the shelves, and we entered the Air Space. I don’t think the little boys thought much of ‘THE Space hidden inside but I was enthralled. They ran around and around glad to have escaped their shoes and their mother.
I walked from one area, one color to the next, sat on the floor, look at the ceiling, turned in circles and took photos that I had no idea how to insure that they would come out, would convey the joy that being cocooned in this warm light and bright color brought me. The ultimate high for a photographer.
