Lily

When I went to the Pfluger Bridge last weekend, I also swung by the Zilker Botanical Garden.  It was a nice place, but even with all of the rain we've been having, I thought there'd be more to see there from other pics I've seen.  Gotta say I wasn't too impressed, but maybe it was the wrong time of year, plus I didn't wander through the whole place either.  Maybe I'll go back someday.  However, I did get this nice pic of a water lily, at least I think that's what it is...

Pfluger Bridge View #2

Here's another shot of the same buildings as in my previous post, but from under the Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge.  I took a few liberties with this one.  Can anyone guess what liberty besides the obvious black and white conversion?  Here's a hint; it has to do with the framing of the bridge...

I hope you enjoy the photo and thanks for dropping by.

Tilted Pfluger Bridge View

# 600!!

This is my 600th post on the little blog here!  Can you believe that?  Not sure I thought I'd stick with it this long.  I think I started this silly little thing in 2009 and I haven't gotten tired of it yet.  I guess I'll keep on until I do.  Thanks for visiting over this time, too!  I really appreciate it!  Oh, and tell your friends! Haha!!

Photo: Tilted Pfluger Bridge View

Last weekend I took a trip out to the Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge and took a few snaps.  The bad thing was that it was in the middle of the day, which is really not a great time for photography.  So, I tried to mix things up a little by tilting the camera for this particular landscape.

Most of those buildings in the background are new high-rise condos.  Austin is pretty much a big city now.  Austin as I knew it twenty five years ago is certainly long gone and is missed.

Barrel Racer #4

Here's the last of my photos from the Stockyards Rodeo.  It's another barrel racer heading for home.  The rider is quite clear in this one, but I'd like the background to be a little more blurred out, but overall I still think it turned out well.

As always, click on the photo itself to see a larger version.
