Laguna Gloria Art Museum

This branch of the Austin Museum of Art (there is also a museum downtown) sits on a beautiful 12 acre estate just on the edge of town, overlooking the lake.  It is a wonderful place to visit and is very popular for weddings too.  I paid them a little visit last weekend, hoping I could get a clear shot of the Italian villa with a cool sky behind it.  All my other attempts have been thwarted by bright sunshine, and they close the grounds at 5pm so sunset is usually out of the question.  Saturday it went my way, thanks to a cloudy and sometimes rainy day.  When I arrived they were setting up for a wedding, with trucks moving here and there, and folks milling about.  So, I wandered the grounds and got a lot of shots of other things - statues, columns, fountains, and even a lizard.  When I made my way back to this scene, I found it empty and fired away.  I guess patience is a virtue.
