Location 5, Day 1 - A Great Start in Texas

by Mindy Veissid

It's hard to believe we are already on the last trip of our five location adventure. We've been dodging raindrops.  Luckily we had clear skies for the three subjects we captured --a great start since we usually aim for a total of twelve and its only the first day! It looks as though there is going to be on and off rain for the remainder of the trip. Northern Texas got hit with the worst of it including at least one tornado. So, fingers crossed!

We headed along the coastline to Victoria (the spot that was originally randomly chosen on the map) and then down toward Seadrift where the San Antonio and Guadalupe Rivers terminate in San Antonio Bay. We then turned back northward to San Antonio. The plan is to photograph tomorrow in San Antonio and then head back to Galveston for two presentations there and then exploring Thursday and Friday. Galveston is a city rich in history (it was once known as "The Playground of the South") and appears to have a great deal remaining that is linked to its past. 

Special thanks to Sheree for arranging what came down to an eleventh hour presentation at one of the high schools in Galveston and to Sayaka for driving just about all day today.

Here are our iPhone photos and video from today.

Until tomorrow...
