Shooting sunset on Burnet Road

Shooting sunset on Burnet Road

I love signs and graffiti - and sunset, 'natch! - and caught all 3 on a recent outing here in Austin.  It's great to travel and shoot in various spots around the world, but it's also great to shoot interesting things near home.  It's easier to get there, too LOL!

fancy that of london

I have so many photos still to process from a lot of places - including London - but I keep coming back to the London shots first.  I am not sure what it is, but I seem to be drawn to this folder in my photo library.  My visits there this year have yielded me a lot of photos - something like 1500 I think - and I just enjoying strolling down memory lane a bit, I guess.  Anyways, one thing I like about London is the various shop windows and pubs - they are just really interesting and photogenic to me.  I caught this one while I was heading into the British Museum - it's literally across the street from the museum, right out the front gate.  I guess all that red called me!  Makes me want to go in there and buy a bunch of tea and cookies!

BTW, I have compiled a list of some of my favorite spots to shoot in London, so if you want to check that out head over here: http://www.nomadicpursuits.com/top-photo-spots-in-london/ 

I have a few of these lists, which you can find over on the left sidebar here on the blog, under "Photographic Ramblings".  Let me know what you think!

Beaver Creek retail

On my recent trip to Beaver Creek, I spent a little time wandering around the village and checking out everything.  There are lots of shops and restaurants and it really has the feel of a European alpine village.  This is one of those stores - Karin's of Beaver Creek, which appears to sell home furnishings.  I was really drawn in by the look of it with the Christmas decorations and all the texture and detail.
