There never has been much going on summers in Denton, Texas. In fact they roll up the streets and turn the traffic lights to permanent blink – at least some of them … they used to anyway.
It is an obvious opportunity to get caught up on all the dozens of photography assignments that came through in May and June, and start to think about changing this site’s look, and publish a few posts on the photography that’s happening now.
Here’s a recent image of writer and photographer Scott Sommerlatte, done in Port O’Connor, Texas, editorial photography for the website www.texasflycaster.com. Scott’s a lot nicer than he looks here – I just liked the image composition and light balance.

The weather happened to cooperate on this image, as bright sun would have been impossibly contrasty, hard to balance, and blown the highlights. Angle, position and location of this image are what makes it work for me, and TWU.

Once in Forever Veteran’s Day 11-11-11
There will be a lot of noise and a lot of people on the Square in Downtown Denton, Texas, tomorrow. I was talking to a local businessman and Vietnam veteran yesterday, on the location of another shoot related to 11-11, and he said there’ll be a Huey fly over. So that unmistakeable thump will just add to the feelings running through the dense crowds expected to converge on the Square.
I will be working there as well, and it will be great to be back in circulation with that crowd – doing my thing.
Summer Denton 2011 will go down in history as, at minimum, the second hottest summer in recorded history.
As Yogi Berra said, “It aint’ over ’till it’s over,” and the fat lady hasn’t died of heatstroke just yet.
There are signs though. The students of UNT and TWU are back in Denton, Texas, driving the wrong way down the streets, and generally getting to know the quirky little big town of Denton. It’ll take some getting used to – for them. Us, we’re already used to it; we pull our seat belts a little snugger, and run about ten-miles-per-hour slower to lessen the impacts. It’s all good though. As one long gone wise old man once said, “Denton wouldn’t have made a town except for those universities!” Well, it may not have made a town, if you consider a transient population of 48-thousand students significant. I do.
So it’s back to work for TWU, and back to work for the business community of Denton – those with the wisdom to know the difference between a professional and not. It’s a hard place, but this is where we live, and survive.
Look for some fresh work to be coming down the way here in the next few weeks, and perhaps some new clients as well.
