To Bear Fruit For Our Race website launches

I designed this website homepage with Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator, and it uses an open-source javascript to rotate the images.

The website is a special project of the Center for Public History, and is used in intermediate and high school classrooms to educate students about Houston black history.

Gruene Hall: We were there (together)

On July 1, 2009, Kim and I visited historic Gruene Hall outside of New Braunfels. Standing outside, a biker saw us and offered to take our photo. We obliged — who wouldn’t? — he was a biker.

The biker took our photo, though I'm pretty sure his bike stole the frame.

Then, Kim took my picture outside of the historic building.

Then, I took her photo.

And later, using Adobe Photoshop, I combined the two individual photos to create an image of us together, in front of a full view of Gruene Hall.

Then, later the combined photo was printed in a Shutterfly book I made for Kim.

Of course, the gallery of the photos I took during our Summer 2009 vacation can be seen here: day one and day two.
