Some coworkers and I decided to hold a photowalk in downtown Austin back in April of 2012. We started at a local burger joint then began our walk from South Congress towards the Texas State Capitol. We made a couple of stops before we arrived there. We arrived at the Capitol after sunset so I leveraged the lighting that shines on the building. As we moved around the facility, I noticed that the Texas State Troopers that guard the building were paying very close attention to us. One approached and asked what we were doing and asked us to show our identification. It never dawned on me that we were there taking photographs of a potential terrorist target… I guess he decided that we were not a threat and let us go. We quickly finished our work and moved along. The image below of the Texas Capitol patio is one of my favorites from this shoot.
This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5D Mark II using my Canon EF16-35mm f/2.8L set on 16 mm. The camera was set on Aperture Priority mode with the aperture set at f/9, shutter speed at 5 seconds and the ISO at 200.
