This week’s Friday Shoot Out is, “9 to 5, people at work in your town”, In Brasil I had a huge, still do in fact, archive of photos that I could dig into if the week didn’t let me out to shoot new photos. For Houston’s photos, I need to get out there and shoot for our weekly topics and that seems to just not happen. Two weeks ago I spent 4 days in a courtroom listening to boring testimony as the attorneys worked hard for their money, course I would have looked silly snapping photos while they worked.
Last week it rained all week and I don’t mean little sprinkles but hard gushing blowing cold rain. There is no taking the camera out on days like that….. oh, I guess I could have gone to the mall and snapped sales clerks hard at work – but I didn’t. I worked hard in a warm house baking for the Thanksgiving meal on Thursday.
Houston is an Oil services, shipping, banking, and medical center town. Most of that is tied directly to like businesses in South America. I think I have touched on most of this in other FSO weeks, maybe not focused on the worker. I would love to go on a rig and take photos but don’t get excited it is not likely to happen anytime soon. oh if only I were still in Brasil…..
What does that leave me…. gardeners and lawn men; mowing, cutting and digging, and, this week, hanging Christmas decorations. And yesterday a high school play-off game; the team, coaches and refs working hard on the day after Thanksgiving – so enjoy just a couple of Houston My Town photos just to show I am not just being lazy …..
This year, rain and cold would have kept the city garden crew at home.
Saturday Play-off game between Elkins high of Missouri City – GO KNIGHTS - and the Katy Tigers
The guys that work hard to make the game play stay inside the rules.
Yes, I had some envy issues seeing that lens. Yes, I realize that if I bought something like that I would have to take photography seriously ….. there were 4 official photographers on our side of the field using super cameras – I wonder what they would think of my quick snaps.
and the cheerleaders, who are working Hard keep us enthusiastic even when the score went to
56 Katy TIGERs to 26 Elkin’s Knights. Ouch!
