Luckenbach, TX

Good old Luckenbach, TX.  This is some town. Well, it's not really a town, I guess.  It's an unincorporated community in the Texas hill country about 70 miles west of Austin.  But it's awesome.  It's only about 9 acres in size - which is tiny - but it's got a lot of character.  Since the 1970's it's been "famous" as a country music mecca with performances from greats such as Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and Lyle Lovett.  And really, there are only 2 main buildings there - the dance hall and this building, which is a combination Post Office/General Store/Saloon. 

I went there at sunrise one morning, because I knew that was my best chance to shoot it empty (which I love to do).  It feels like a ghost town and doubly so when it's just me, my Nikon, two cats and a handful of squawking chickens walking around.  It was pretty dang fun, really.
