Llano Texas Eagles Nest…

It has been awhile since I’ve been able to wander over towards Llano and see how the Eagles are doing. They have been nesting near there for quite a few years. I found they’ve moved the nest a little down the road but to my joy the nest is a little closer to the road […]

The Lesson in Grand Kids…

I guess I have to say I’ve been blessed by some pretty special people in my life. Just when I thought I was getting old and that it was all work and no play along come the grand children to teach me to relax again. There’s nothing like the memories of hanging out… The absolute […]

Artist -vs- Creep…

I’ve been pretty self concious about my weight and my back lately. I suffer from a slipped disc and chronic back pain and my gut isn’t helping. So I have been going hiking quite a bit with my camera. Today, around Lake Georgetown. Lord it was hot but I wanted to burn off some steam […]

Austin Vibe…

I love Austin, Texas. I wish there was a better, more articulate way of saying it, but that’s the truth. I love to just BE in Austin. I think it has a ‘vibe’ all of its own. I love to go down around 1st Street or Congress Avenue and just people watch. Well, and dog […]

Austin, Texas…

I really love Austin, Texas, especially downtown. It’s picturesque and the people are amazing! I have to say that the city has its own ‘vibe’. They’ve just completed the Austonian in downtown which is now the tallest building in Austin. I wonder if they let folks up on the top to take pictures or if […]

Out in the Country…

What a wonderful day this turned out to be! It didn’t start out very well but I decided to just get out and wander. The sun was out and it wasn’t too cold and I just decided to take a county road to see what I could see. I don’t know why it is that […]

Talking Animals…

Have you ever imagined animals talking to you or is it just me? Alright, I’m going out on a limb here. I’ve been thinking all day “what am I going to blog about for this challenge?” I have all this work to do and then I have to get gas and have all these things […]

Renewal…

I remember passing this house a couple of years ago and loved the old style of it. My thoughts at the time were that it would make a great haunted house. I just loved the old style of it. Actually I wished I had lived there. Well, I was driving around and passed by the […]

Night Photography (Austin)…

I’m just now learning how to expose photographs for night lights. The intrenet is a wonderful resource for looking up settings to start with. So, I took my camera down to Town Lake in downtown Austin Texas and played with the settings that I had found on the internet. The settings I ended up using: […]

Central Texas Rain…

I’m so glad it rained. There is so much to see and do after a heavy downpour (other than dry off). I noticed my grandson’s bicycle had fallen over in the storm. Image Copyright © 2009, Barrett Photo Art Now you may be thinking that’s a shadow under the bicycle but it looks like God […]

Texas Drought…

Well they’ve announced that here in Georgetown Texas we are now under water restrictions. I was wondering when they were going to do that because I’ve enjoyed taking pictures in San Gabriel Park. Image Copyright © 2009 Barrett Photo Art The above photo was taken just this last June 2009. And here is near the […]

Georgetown Texas…

I live in Georgetown, Texas North of Austin. I worked in Austin and commuted 47 miles to work. I count that as a blessing as now I have the opportunity to find work in the town I love and live in. Image Copyright © Barrett Photo Art They have a wonderful downtown square that is […]

Austin Bats…

I think it’s rather unique to have a million bats fly out from under a bridge every night at sunset. Not to mention the amount of bugs they eat. It’s like the sunset party in Key West, FL watching the sun go down. In Austin, Texas – they watch the sun go down AND the […]
