Photos of the Week

For the sake of my recent struggles with being on top of posting pictures I have decided that in my world, Sunday counts as the last day of the current week, not as the first day of the upcoming week. Feeling crunched for time, I dug back through my pictures from Houston and found some more to edit and share with you. Pretty soon I will also be a contributing writer and photographer for Human or Dancer, the blog run by dancers of the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre. The first photos I’ll be adding to that site will be behind the scenes pictures from our rehearsals for our upcoming performance, Coppelia.

Photos of the Week

Last weekend I traveled down to Houston, Texas for two auditions. It was my first time in Texas and I have to admit, I don’t really have any desire to go back. The auditions took place at Houston Ballet’s studios which are in the theatre district of downtown Houston. My hotel was only a few blocks away so I could easily walk and see what Houston had to offer. It was very empty on the weekend, which sucked for me because it left me with very little to do with the free time I had. On Sunday before I left I took a quick (and hot) walk around a few blocks of downtown to see if there was anything that inspired me to take pictures. I found a few interesting sights that I’m sharing with you below but overall I was just not impressed. Maybe that has to do with the fact that my auditions were a complete bust too… oh well.

Now I am at the airport again to travel to more auditions. My life has been so hectic and stressful lately. I know I skipped last week’s photo post… I just couldn’t find the time or extra energy to get around to it on time. I am dancing at work all day long then I come home physically exhausted and start organizing travel plans and dates for auditions which leaves me mentally exhausted and then the only thing I have stamina left for is a shower and sleep. This ridiculously stressful period is soon coming to a close and then I will be able to calm down and spend more time doing other activities that I enjoy. Until that time I apologize for any lack of excitement that my blog may have…
