Daily Photo 4.1.11 (Walking Bridge at Night)

I decided I need to take advantage of the really cool camera apps on my EVO phone.  Sometimes it feels like I am not taking a “real” photo, because it’s with my phone, but the effects I can get are just amazing, and it takes my creativeness in a whole new direction.  Tonight we were walking on the bridge over Town Lake (Lady Bird Lake), and I thought I would use different apps to photograph the empty bridge.  These are my 2 favorites.

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 2.4.11 (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 2.3.11 (Frozen Fountain)

I thought I would take advantage of the freezing weather and get some photos of frozen fountains.  I really like this fountain, with the great metal sculpture around it.  This is located on Auditorium Shores, at S. 1st and Riverside Dr., just on the south side of the river (Lady Bird Lake).  Did I mention this is in Austin, TEXAS!!

Daily Photo 11.7.10 (Beautiful afternoon on Lady Bird Lake)

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?)

Daily Photos 3.18.10 (SXSW- Music Day 2)

We went down to Auditorium Shores to see tonight’s free SXSW Concert, and we wanted to hear this band “Bajofondo”, they are from Argentina & Uruguay.  Of course I like Argentinians, so I had to check them out!  Their music is a mix of electronica/rock/tango.  I loved it!  They were so fun!  Of course I got carried away with the photos, but here’s a few.  Check them out, here’s their MySpace page http://www.myspace.com/bajofondomardulce
