Sunset on Town Lake

I sat on the bridge over Town Lake and watched the sunset. Austin's active life happened around me. I captured it with the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G AF-S ED.

Family Time

Thanksgiving travels. Early flights are tough on the body, although it is beautiful seeing the sunrise. It was great to see family and play endless rounds of Scrabble and Mexican Train... but it is amazing to be home!

Surfer Photography

This one is for my hubby. These are beautiful shots by Clark Little a surfer who captures amazing photography.


Perusing around The Year in Pictures, I came across this collection of images all taken by different photographers but include the same protagonist- a balcony. I suppose the city itself is also a common subject. 

I'd love to give this a whirl...

Arrival of the Lens

Its here and I don't think I've done the lens justice with these few shots. Its late and dark outside and my photographic subjects are low... or maybe my creativity is taking the day off?  Maybe the making of the mini pumpkin pie treats, turkeys made out of leaves, the 90 minute bikram session, and the cleanup job of projectile vomiting has exhausted my creative side.
 I'll call it a night and start all over again tomorrow. 

These ARE lovely louboutins though... mmm... I love you :)

Weekend Bliss: Sunday Afternoon

My city is beautiful in the fall. Hiking trails are enjoyable when its not blistering hot. What a beautiful Sunday in Austin. 

Like all dog owners, I love my dog... but I need new subjects! Any takers?

A Night Out/ The Sign Project

I was really excited to bring my camera to see this show. I am such a rookie, and had no idea I needed a photo pass to bring it in. Boo! So I guess I need to work on my credentials if I want to make it big ;0

Nonetheless we had a great time at Stubb's.  I absolutely love live music under the stars with great weather and my loving husband! We were disappointed to find out we misread the fine print and only saw Matt McHugh from the Beautiful Girls and not the entire band. It was still a beautiful show and great music.
On to the Next one!

Dear Luke, your friends misspelled Buena Suerte!

Matt McHugh was amazing

John Butler Trio played forever!

Miu Miu Fall 2010

Browsing through Fashion gone rogue I was intrigued and captivated by these looks. If only I had a million dollars to buy these beauties now! Could these be added to my Christmas list? Maybe item #2 & #3? A girl could dream- right?
