Week 31: Reflection

7 09 2010

This reflection is Austin’s skyline on Town Lake.  I was going for the “butterfly effect.”  You know, like when you were little and you’d create a design with paint on one side of a piece of paper.  Then you would fold the paper in half so the paint got on the other side and duplicated the pattern.  Then you would unfold the paper to show a butterfly or in most cases identical blobs. 🙂  Well that’s the effect I tried to create with this photograph.     

It was taken right at sunset.  I love the color the sun created as it bounced off the buildings.  So pretty!

I’m excited to photograph this skyline at other times and see the difference it makes in the reflection.  This time of night the water was still a little active from kayakers and tour boats.  

What did you think about the reflection being used for the butterfly effect?

Snow!

11 02 2010

You know you’re from Texas when…you get excited about two inches of snow in February. 🙂

I heard the sound of water dripping on my window sill this morning and thought it was rain.  I got up to check it out and, much to my surprise, the snow the weatherman had predicted actually showed up and stuck!  Please enjoy the rarity that is Texas snow.

Thank you for joining me on my journey!  This past year has been such a great learning experience.  I can’t wait to see what the future holds.   Each day is a blessing, make it count!

Happy New Year & God bless!

Rainy Days

22 09 2009

When it rains it pours. ..and pours…and pours. DFW has had a ridiculous amount of rain over the past two weeks.  It truly seemed like it would never end.  All the rain caused the Trinity River to rise which created great photo ops.  Here are a few of my favorites.

A tour of Tolar

27 07 2009

Tolar, TX, population 681, is a small town located on 377.  It almost looks like a town stuck in a time warp.  It has a full service gas station still displaying gas for $1.08(those were the days!) and it has run down store fronts set up like an old western.  I’ve always loved a blue door located at the back of one of the building frames.  It catches my eye any time we drive through.  The town really presents great photo ops with the vibrant colors, interesting textures and the general character of the town.  🙂 I hope you enjoy the pics!
