Monday morning greetings from Austin Texas!
Back on the road again this week and thatâ€™s always a good thing. We have been taking advantage of all the good weather in Central Illinois the past couple of weeks to be outside shooting a bunch of architectural photography for a client and thatâ€™s worked out very nicely. Last week we made a quick trip down to Quincy, Il. and then a few days later down to St. Louis for another shoot. This week weâ€™re in Austin and itâ€™s going to be a little toasty weather wise being outside, but thatâ€™s the nature of the business.
People are always amazed when we drive so much to these shoots and thereâ€™s a myriad of reasons why we choose to drive instead of flying. No, we arenâ€™t afraid to fly! 🙂 There can be delays in flights, camera gear doesnâ€™t show up on time, excess baggage fees by the airlines have become outrageous, etc., etc., etc. Well one of the things that driving allows us to do is to stop along the way and shoot photos and thatâ€™s probably the best reason that we like to drive. Mind you, we donâ€™t always stop and shoot photos, but the opportunity is there and when we see something good, we stop and shoot!
I arrived in Austin yesterday afternoon and had a few hours to swing by the Zilker Botanical Gardens and walk around and take a few snaps. Even though it was hot and humid, itâ€™s still always a very good thing to be outside shooting photos! The gardens are right across the river from downtown Austin, so itâ€™s very convenient to stop by for a visit.
Hereâ€™s a few of my snaps from an hour spent at the Zilker Botanical Gardens.
Itâ€™s time to get to work, so we hope that youâ€™re going to have a great week to come and thanks as always for checking out our work!
Kev and Jan
