Senate Chamber – Texas State Capitol

So this is how it looks from the Lt. Governor Dewhursts’s perch.   We were lucky enough to be invited to take a few photographs at the Texas State Capitol.   I resisted temptation and didn’t bang the gavel. Tweet Share on Facebook

Texas State Capitol

My wife and I were walking by the Texas State Capitol on a beautiful December evening when I quickly snapped this with my Canon G10.   If I remember correctly, this was a HDR image.  By the way it was a quick shot because it was close to dinner time. Tweet Share on Facebook

This was the second image that made it into the Town Lake Trail Foundation Calendar.  I suspect this one made it because it was a project done by the Foundation. Tweet Share on Facebook

My friend Kelley Burrus asked me to enter a photo contest for the Town Lake Trail Foundation calendar.   I knew the competition would be stiff–there was a National Geographic photographer entering as well as several professional photographers.  I walked the Town Lake Trail at least five times looking for great photos. 

At the end of a night of walking around Town Lake with fellow photographer Robert Paulsen, we  saw this reflection of the Town Lake Gazebo.   Oh man, do I really need to drag the tripod out.  Guess it was worth it.  This photograph was one of two selected for the annual calendar.  

A bit about the gazebo.

Presented to the City of Austin “for the enjoyment of all the people of Austin,” the gazebo at Town Lake represents a four and half year commitment by the Austin Chapter of Women in Construction. The project, begun in 1967 and dedicated in 1970, was intended to serve as a “lasting tribute to the construction industry” and to spawn other beautification projects along Town Lake. The structure was designed by Sterry Nill, Jr., to match the architecture of the nearby Municipal Auditorium and to blend with the beauty of Town Lake.
