I've been home a bit lately, and I'm taking advantage of it!
Though I have been on a few planes and thus out of town a decent amount in the last few months, the total amount of travel I've had to do for work has been lower lately. Knowing that I'm a bit of a fan of traveling, you might think that this would be a bad thing for me. But in reality, I have really enjoyed being here. I have gotten out to shoot Austin more in the last couple of months than I did in the last couple of years!
Part of this is driven by me having moved over to the Sony A7II camera. Having a new toy definitely makes me want to get out and put it to use, and it also makes me want to revisit some spots that I don't necessarily feel like I did justice to in the past. Plus, I just like to take photos. I think that's pretty obvious at this point. :-)
But, I'm also working on an Austin photo project of sorts that I will be revealing as soon as I can get closer to completion - probably around the first of the year. I'm having fun taking photos of a lot of Austin lately. Let's just leave it at that for now. :-)
And of course, I have my list of the Top Photo Spots in Austin, which I can probably add a few more things to at this point (and I have a list on my phone of several more I still need to get to!) All of this will come into play in my project I am working on. Ok, more on that later.
But to clarify, this won't turn into an Austin-only photo blog. No way. As much as I love this town, I'm always happy to get up and go somewhere, camera in hand. I'm way too much of a traveler at heart to NOT travel. I think I would go stir crazy if I didn't move around a bit! While there are no concrete plans at the moment, as a family we are having a lot of discussions about future trips, so I am very confident that more will be coming. Oh yeah, and of course work will require me to go a few places too.
So keep tuning in and you can expect a lot of variety as I continue to go new places, and catch up on the monstrous backlog of awesomeness that I have captured over the years!
