Seton Williamson Hospital Lobby
The Seton Family of Hospitals has branches all over the Austin area. My wife Eileen now works at the Williamson County location and thought I might like to shoot there. I was up for that!
This location opened about a year or two ago and is very close to our home; 6 miles to be exact. It's very convenient for Eileen! I wish I could find work so close. It beats the 28 mile one-way commute I have to endure. Waaa. Anyway, the hospital is very nice and new and, as you can see here in the lobby, they have a couple of white Christmas trees set up with red bulbs on them. I remember those kind of trees from the 1970s. I guess they are coming back.
One other thing that's cool about this place is that Seton is a Catholic institution and there are crosses everywhere, yet they are subtle. I'm sure you can find a couple in this shot.
Lastly, I wish this would've come through in the photo, but the green portion of the wall behind the counter in the back of the shot is a waterfall. It's very cool, but you wouldn't know it from looking at this shot.
