I went to my friend’s house out in Volente to shoot some headshots and photos of her working in her studio. We spent several hours there and I got a great tour of her house and the grounds around it. Beautiful place! We came across these red berries in a dry creek bed.
I was so glad I did not have to go into work today. It sounded dangerous out there to drive, but then we decided to take a walk and shoot some photos. When I stepped outside, it was cold but sunny, and for just a bit I thought “oh, maybe it’s not that bad”. But then we got to the street right outside our complex, and they had 17 cars on the side of the road that could not go anywhere. They slid into each other on a big patch of ice right outside our driveway! So I was VERY happy I did not have to drive anywhere.
Here are some of my favorite shots from today. I will start with the mess on our street.
I had a great day wandering around Town Lake (Lady Bird Lake) with my daughter and taking photos. My CF card was full, so I could not use my camera! (I let her borrow my card and have not gotten it back yet), so I used my EVO to take some photos. I downloaded the FX Camera for Android and Retro Camera for Android and I really like some of the photos I came up with! Here’s a few. (Don’t the photos of the abandoned building look like a torture chamber?)
Being free museum day, we went to the Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum. We were lucky enough to be there between soaking rain storms! I managed to snap this photo between drizzle. It was so beautiful there, and gorgeous sculptures!
We were at the Oasis tonight for my daughter’s Birthday Party #1 (she is planning on partying all weekend!) We went to listen to the Eggmen, a Beatles cover band. They are so much fun! I definitely recommend them! It was a bit cloudy after this shot, so this is the best “sunset” photo I could get!
Wow! What a lightning storm we had here in Austin tonight! I happen to be at the Creative Arts Society meeting at the ACC Campus in Oak Hill, which has a great view! So I had to experiment with getting lightning shots. Here’s a few.
