Photowalks in Austin, December 10th

Photowalks in Austin are a bit like buses. You wait around for one for ages then, all of a sudden, two arrive at the same time! Thankfully, although there are two photowalks happening next Saturday, they have been cunningly (or, more likely, luckily) arranged such that you can attend both if you have the stamina.

At 5pm, a group of us are gathering on the south steps of the Capitol building to shoot it at twilight and hopefully get a few better shots than this one. We’ll concentrate on the exterior and work our way north from there up Congress Avenue towards the Bob Bullock State History Museum and the Blanton Museum of Art. Not that I’m being selfish but there’s a particular dusk shot I want to get from the front of the Blanton Museum so, since I’m organising this one, that’s where we’ll end up.

This particular walk is intended to allow Colorado visitor Justin Balog (from the “Light as Magic” photoblog) to meet some of us Austin photobloggers so come along and say hello.

Later that evening, Trey Ratcliff and Lotus Carroll are organising another walk with a totally different focus. At 8pm, people will be meeting on 37th Street to shoot the famous Christmas decorations up there. I suspect that will be an altogether less intimate walk (100 people or so?) but a great deal of fun too. To sign up for that one, click here. I see the attendee list already includes local buddies like Alex Suarez, Mike Tuuk, Peter Tsai and Jack “photojack” Hollingsworth so we are definitely in for a spirited evening of conversation and photography.
