While I was down in Texas, I was finally able to meet up with Rockie Nolan. I say finally because in the last two months, we’ve come a hair’s breadth from making contact on three separate occasions. It finally took something like SXSW to do the trick.
Rockie is one of my favorite lady photographers, but is also a legitimately rad person. My only regret is that we had so little time together. As it happens, Ms. Nolan is graduating from SCAD in only a few weeks, before she moves up north to Brooklyn. I suppose this just means I have yet another reason to haul myself back out to New York. Hard life.
On a side note, is there a law in Austin requiring homeowners to plant cacti in their front yards? Cause I’d gladly comply with said law. One of the most striking things to me in Austin were all of the giant agave plants, so please forgive me if I went a bit overboard here. I’m kinda jealous just cause I can’t have a massive ball of spikes growing in my front yard here in Portland. Flippin rain. Flippin lack of sunlight. Again, hard life.
