I was contacted recently by my friend, Henry Davis, the brilliant graphic artist about a project. He’d been retained by Allen “King Of The Oldies” Hill to produce a holiday card for Allen Hill Entertainment and he needed a photographer to assist in the project. Apparently he couldn’t find one, so he came to me.

Allen wanted a card that depicted himself ice skating on the reflection pool in front of Houston City Hall.

Since it rarely gets below freezing in these parts, much less does it ever snow, this was going to be a studio project combined with digital chicanery. We arranged to meet up at the Houston Chronicle to “borrow” their photography studio and staged what we needed and Henry did the rest in Photoshop.

It was my first time in a studio with the new flash. I think it came out pretty well.

    I only see one thing I’d change … LOL … not saying what. It’s okay though cause I wanted it to look somewhat fake like those cheesy post cards you can find on Route 66. I’m pretty sure that’s actually Allen’s destiny … playing up and down Route 66, maybe a gig at the Big Texan in Amarillo. I’ll visit once a year while I’m in Turkey, TX for Bob Wills Day.

    Wow, I love that photo. It really does look like it was taken at some indeterminate time in the past. Well done.
