Street Scenes from South by Southwest

You may want to go ahead and see the big size... !


South by Southwest is a huge music, film, and interactive festival down here in Austin. People from all over the world come here to what has become known as the music capitol of the world. Many streets shut down for all kinds of interesting activity. I went out an evening ago to get some shots of some of the action on the streets to share with you all. I usually don't do these sorts of shots, but I wanted to mix it up a little so you could see a local slice of life right here in my hometown! :)

    Definitely have to view them large to appreciate the detail and processing - lots of Lucis sculpture?

    I particularly like the third one.
