Remember The Alamo

Remember The Alamo

That famous Texas saying etched into the floor of the Texas State Capitol building in Austin. This scene immediately made me think it just might be a good candidate for the new 11mm, you can really do some cool things with a lens that wide. The different levels, the railings, and shapes all leading to the long hallway in the newer part of the Capitol building. The lighting was fairly dim in this area, once I got a look at the shot after it was processed I tried the black and white approach and I was pleased with the look.

Thanks for looking!

Bullock Museum

While shooting the Capitol Building in downtown Austin Dave Wilson and I made our way a few blocks down Congress Ave. to have a look at the Bullock Texas State History Museum. The Giant Texas Star in front of the museum is frequently photographed so I had to point my camera at it as well since I was in town.

For a different look, I took out my new 11-24 for a cool perspective on the star and museum, getting pretty close to the star in the process. I am sure the museum would be a great visit but unfortunately, it was closed at the time and Dave and I were ready for a cold one.

Thanks for stopping!
