The Rolando’s logo

rolandos-blog

This is the logo for Rolando’s Super Tacos in San Antonio.

They make the biggest and, in their own very Tex-Mex way, best breakfast tacos in the city. My friends and family have been making the drive across town to their modest looking converted house off Hildebrand for well over 10 years.

For whatever reason, I’ve googled for their logo a number of times and never could find it. Then I realized I had it all along on a coffee mug, so now it’s finally online.  I’m strangely proud of this.

Echoes on Flickr

Three shots from my contacts in the last couple weeks:

I think I first saw the term “echo” used to describe photographic coincidences about ten years ago in an American Photo magazine.

Meet Michael Vick’s rescued dogs now

amanda-jasmine

Video of the dogs rescued and rehabilitated after Michael Vick’s arrest is avaiable on the site of the rescue organization, Bad Rap.

We see so many rescued pits out here, it’s heart-breaking. People who’ve adopted from a shelter tell me it’s almost hard to find pups that aren’t a pit or pit mix.

“Chasing the Family Drift” by Todd Deutsch

Photo by Todd Deutsch

Photo by Todd Deutsch

From the project’s description:

My great- grandparents recorded milestone events in a family bible. Birth, baptism, marriage, and death created a simple and reliable narrative path describing our family history. These records are now kept in photo albums. … They describe an optimistically simple and peaceful version of family life; one in which change is predictable and effortless. But what is left is a broad outline that ignores the complexity and richness of the life it is meant to recall. The reality, of course, is that it has never been as peaceful (or organized as efficiently) as the photographs might suggest. Chasing the Family Drift is a way of staying mindful of the time spent in the gaps.

Deutsch’s work is great, and the idea of documenting the gaps really gets close to what I hope to achieve when I shoot.

Images from the book. Buy it.
