Daily Photo 3.5.11 (Bicycle Riders)

We went for a walk on the Lamar pedestrian bridge a few days ago and there was a huge gathering on bike riders.  I thought this was a perfect opportunity to get some “motion” shots!  I just sat there in the middle and kept shooting as they rode past me.

Daily Photo 2.18.11 (Austin’s City Hall)

I went to Austin’s City Hall- People’s Gallery Opening reception tonight.  Some really cool work in there this year!  It was great to see several friends there, and a few of them had some work chosen!

I love the architecture of the building, it’s modern with lots of sharp angles, made with concrete, copper, limestone and I am sure some more materials.  Here’s a few shots of some cool angles in the building and a bit of the reception.

Daily Photo 2.4.11 (Snow Day- Austin)

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.

Daily Photo 10.21.10 (Arthouse- Artist Sneak Peek)

I attended the Arthouse at the Jones Center Grand Re-Opening- “Artist Sneak Peek”.  They did a fabulous job with the architecture!   Also, the rooftop is amazing!  It’s going to be a great place for artists and art lovers here in Austin.  I almost forgot I had a great camera on my Evo!  Here’s a few photos from tonight.

Daily Photo 10.9.10 (A Candle for John Lennon)

I lit my John Lennon candle in honor of what would have been his 70th Birthday today.  Yes, I have a John Lennon candle!  Thanks to my artist friend Bill Stidham.  Check out his fabulous artwork (specially his “Sacred Heart” Series) on his website, or go see him if you are at ACL!

Daily Photo 7.20.10 (At the Pool)

This has to be one of the cutest most photographed little boys ever! (yes, his mom follows him with a camera also.)  He came over to hang out and swim at the pool.  I love photographing little kids.  They are just being themselves, so if you are willing to spend a little time and take quite a few shots you will get amazing photos, just about every time!

Daily Photo 7.17.10 (Kids Photos)

I love photographing kids!  I guess it comes from following my own kids with a camera when they were little.  My daughter said that I was getting her ready for when she would be famous, so she could handle the paparazzi! 🙂  I took these photos at my niece’s son’s birthday party.
