Terry’s Texas Rangers is not my favorite team nor anything to do with me. It does, however, play a very important part in Texas’ history.

Eastern Phoebe

Phoebe Neighbors

A pair of Phoebes decided a few years ago to make themselves at home in the overhang of our porch and every year we look forward to their return.

Pennybacker Bridge at Sunset

March Sunset

I keep returning to Austin’s Pennybacker Bridge overlook with hopes to get a great sunset photo. I tried once again earlier this week but it was not fantastic.

Austin Live Music - Whole Foods


I you have not been to the Whole Foods flagship store in Austin you have missed a great experience. The store is by far the best grocery store in the country.

There have been multiple Cooper’s Hawks around the neighborhood for the past couple of weeks and I have been trying to photograph them each time I hear them.

The Wood Duck is one of the most colorful birds in this area. I had the opportunity to photograph them while practicing my bird photography on Lady Bird Lake.

Texas State Capitol Rotunda


I visited the Texas State Capitol a few times with the intent to photograph the dome while lying in the middle of the floor. I finally got that opportunity.

Pele & The Street Musician


I went on a Photowalk of downtown Austin late one evening. I was able to capture a variety of images including Pele and his master the “Street Musician”.

I was out practicing my long-range bird photography the other day when I ran across these friends. A Great Blue Heron and a Chicken Turtle.

I posted an wider angle image similar to this one in October of last year. This time, I focused on the reflection of the Long Center in the pond.

Drum Set


This is the second post in my Austin Live Music series. The first one featured a guitar player with his Gibson SG. The image below is of a Zildjian cymbal.

Lead Guitar


Austin is the “Live Music Capital of the World”. So, I decided to conduct a photowalk through Austin’s live music district to find bands to photograph.

Downtown Austin


Although ATX stands for many other things, people in the Austin area refer to Austin as ATX (Austin, TX). So, this is an ATX skyline at dusk.

Austin Skyline, Lou Ness Point, Sunrise


I mentioned in a recent post that I went scouting for a sunrise location to photograph Austin’s growing skyline. I found a location named Lou Neff Point.


This Austin skyline is not only one of my favorite images and is the first image I posted. I thought it was deserving as the celebratory 150th post image.

Ugly Green

In 1971, a limestone building at the corner of 11th and Red River in Austin, TX, painted “ugly green” and known as “The Eleventh Door,” was condemned by Austin Urban Renewal.


I mentioned in a prior post titled “Homeless” that Austin is homeless-friendly. I ventured out to photograph when I encountered a homeless lady in a tunnel.



Sometimes the best shot is not in front of you but behind you. This was the case the other day when I was shooting some flowers around the house. I turned around and saw this fantastic moon.

Capitol Patio

Some coworkers and I decided to hold a photowalk in downtown Austin back in April of 2012. The image below of the Texas Capitol patio is one of my favorites from this shoot.
