Lake Travis feeds the Colorado River.  You may notice the river is low with the bottom is visible.  Lake Travis is at 32% capacity after several years of a Central Texas drought.  It rained later that day, but the storm barely did anything for the reservoir.  This location is downstream near Bastrop, Texas at the Lost Pines Hyatt.

In this group of photos at SXSW all subjects posed or were aware of the camera and decided to interact with me.  This is the 5th part of the SXSW series, please look at the earlier ones if you have the time.

I love taking pictures of people with tattoos.  SXSW was a target rich environment.  If you are looking for other tattoo photos, try one of my trips to Chicago.

Ron’s coverage of SXSW continues.  Austin’s 6th Street is one of my all time favorite places for street photography.  It has atmosphere, bars and loud music spilling out into the street.  Frequently, it is closed to auto traffic.  One feels the intensity of Bourbon Street without the seedy, unfriendly underpinnings.

Stay tuned as I have 3 more galleries of photos from SXSW.  They are in color and have a somewhat different emphasis.

SXSW is a two week event in Austin, Texas.  The first week is a tech company conference, the second a music festival.  The venues are distributed around Austin, but I hung out on 6th street, famous for its bars and live music.

I would like to thank everyone who viewed the blog yesterday and especially those who left comments.  It was my busiest day in over a month.  There will be more black and white street photography tomorrow.

Skipping For Joy

Yesterday, I had the good fortune to be on 6th street in Downtown Austin, TX during SXSW.  It took me half an hour to find a garage to park my car for only $15.  Beer usually $3 for a 16 ounce can was $5 for a 12 ounce can.  The place was packed.

Since last August I have seen a steady decline in viewers of this blog, despite adding followers and having many to start with.  Since the start of 2015, I published a lot of new travel photography, some of it from exotic locations like Hong Kong and Macau.  I wonder if it is worth the work.  If you like what I am doing, please visit the blog and view the thumbnails on the carousel instead of just leaving a like in the Reader.
