Last month was filled with several vacations for me. Not only was it great to celebrate the end of wedding season with a much needed trip to San Francisco for a few days, but I also got to venture out to Marfa, Texas for the first time to celebrate Thanksgiving with my girlfriend. We even brought the pup.
There are many homes simply falling apart in Marfa. The photograph below is the front of a house; however, the entire backside is missing.
This customized car was decked out with large bull horns on the top of the hood. It was for sale, but the price wasn't included. It turns out many things are quite expensive out in the middle of nowhere of Texas. Who knew?
I photographed Amelia and Jack after we visited the Chinati Foundation. Jack wasn't allowed to see the conceptual modern art. I think he would've enjoyed the very large white bed piece though. Oh well.
And of course I can't shoot a roll of film without taking at least one photograph of my Jack Russell terrier pup by himself. This is Jack waiting for Amelia to return from the natural foods store across the street.
I look forward to the next time I head out west to Marfa again. If you haven't visited the area yet, I highly recommend going. Experiencing Donald Judd's permanent installations at the Chinati Foundation is totally worth the trip. I must say Dan Flavin's fluorescent lights and Carl Andre's poetry were definitely the high points of the Chinati tour.
