Sugarcane Festival at Durst-Taylor Museum

Shelby and I took our grandparents downtown this weekend to the annual Sugarcane Festival at the Durst-Taylor Museum.

I got a few good shots with the Lumix GH4 that I’m using right now, but I’m growing more and more unhappy with it. A coworker was there taking photos with his now-dated Canon 60D and the colors were just…better.

Trey was doing another blacksmithing demonstration and our local news station, KTRE, even did a feature on him. We also got to watch them boil a batch of cane syrup. It smelled pretty good, but boy was it hot.

Blacksmithing at Durst-Taylor Museum

A few photos of my friend Trey practicing blacksmithing at the Durst-Taylor Museum during their Lost Arts and Forgotten Skills Fair. A girl named Alexis was very interested in learning so Trey spent a lot of the time showing her around the forge. He’s a very patient teacher. I’ve attached some notes from him on the photos below.

 
 
Texas Blueberry Festival

Today was the 29th Annual Texas Blueberry Festival in Nacogdoches, TX. The festival is hosted in and around the historic downtown area. Shelby and I have both grown up in Nacogdoches and it’s interesting to see how the festival changes the town for the weekend. The attendance estimate I saw was 20,000 people, a lot for a town of only 32,000.

All photos were taken on a Lumix GH4 with a Lumix 14-45mm f/3.5-5.6

 
 

There’s always lots to do. I really enjoyed watching one of the pie eating contests this year.

 
 

I got some video of it too!

 
 

I haven’t been to many car shows, so I’m not the best judge, but this one seemed pretty nice. I just wish I had gotten a few more few photos while I was there.

 
 

We even ran into one my favorite college professors doing a cooking demonstration on healthy eating and meal planning. (I probably should’ve listened more closely 😉)

 
 

Finally, we closed out the day watching some friends perform with their blues band. Good day.
