Multitasking was the deal that night. I stopped at the bar at the Holland Hotel, where I was able to get a window table. While I enjoyed a drink and dinner, I made a series of images of pedestrians. Yes! Three things at once.
But, as you could have predicted, doing all that stuff at once is a guarantee that at least one of them is probably not going to be all that successful. And this is the only pedestrian photo I liked. But I like it at a lot because of the way the TV’s reflection landed on the woman’s head.
This is in my favorite hotel room (that’s not odd, is it, to have a favorite hotel room?). And I can’t wait to get back down there…
PS – One of my regular commenters wondered what this looked like in color, so here you go (even though it’s still more or less monochrome:
The thing about nighttime in this part of Texas is that even in the middle of the summer, it cools off enough that it’s a shame to be inside. A hotel room with a balcony is the perfect place to watch mostly nothing happen in the street below, enjoy the night air, and take a few photographs.
