Life in Houston--
Somehow early this year I stumbled upon a few photos of the Field of Lights, an art installation by Bruce Munro in Discovery Green. It seemed like a really beautiful display from what I saw on Instagram or whatever social media I was browsing, so I planned for Roddy and I to visit it one night soon.
On one particular evening a few weeks later, I was a little bored and just wanted to do something creative. I was trying to think of a project I could do around the house or something that would get my creative juices flowing. Then I remembered the Field of Lights. I decided that weekend would be a good time to visit the installation, as it was closing soon, and I could take my 35mm to photograph the display. Cool date night, nice evening downtown and a little fun with film photography seemed like a great idea.
That Saturday night, the weather was a little iffy, but we went anyway and had a great time. This display was pretty amazing, with little bulbs on tall, skinny poles dancing in the wind and changing colors. It reminded me of a giant field of tulips or wildflowers.
I shot one roll of color film of the display and these are some of my favorite images.
Although these two photos don't show the Field of Lights, I enjoyed seeing these two art installations at Discovery Green during that same visit. Since they had such nice texture, I converted them to black and white in Lightroom.
I just love all the art installations around Houston. That's one of my favorite things about this city. If you're looking for some nice Houston art of a different sort, check out these wall murals around town.
