This is downtown Austin, looking from south to north. It's the last of the series I took while I was at that meeting on the 17th floor. There are some things I would change if I had a chance to do it over again, but that won't happen until next year..:(
Can you believe how many people showed up for the fireworks show? I got there at 5:30 so I could get a good parking spot, and surprise, about 3000 other people had the same plan..:) And they just kept coming. The show didn't start until 9:30. To the left is the Austin Symphony Orchestra and they provided the music for the show.
This is one of the night shots I took while testing out the new camera. I found that, during processing, I kept getting a lot of blue and aqua tones migrating into the image. Is that normal? Are those color cast always there at night and we just don't notice them? I probably need to do more of these to get the hang of it.
I arrived a little to early at Long Center Sunday for there open house, and as I was walking away I looked up and saw this shot. I never realized what a great view there is of the city from the Long Center. I'll have to go back and do a night shot now..:)
It's so funny to look at the Four Seasons hotel there in the front with those new towering condos behind it. In "76", the Four Seasons was one of the tallest building in Austin.
I just found out someone is using my images on there flickr site, and I don't know what to do about it. In fact, none of the images on his page or his. That's crazy! Now I'm wondering how wide spread this problem is.
This is where the Eco Festival was held. I volunteered to work it and got there a hour early to beat the traffic. So, what does a photographer do with free time..:)
I went to the top of the parking garage across the street and took shots of the center.
Hope you have a great weekend

Texas's state legislature meets at the Capitol building in Austin.
Flickr came to Austin Saturday morning and about 25 of us joined flickr on a photo tour of the city. This old car was a highlight. The guy from flickr was shocked by how warm it was here in November. He was from Germany.
This is one of the better shots from my night photo shoot. That's the Austonian in the backdrop. It's the tallest building in Austin. Here's some extra information if you're interested.
The Austonian was originally proposed in 2006 as a $200 million 700 ft (213 m) tall building by Benchmark Land Development and part of a construction boom during the time. Eventually, the building was pushed down to 683 ft (208 m) in 2007. The building started its groundbreaking ceremony on August 31, 2007. Soon after on June 4, 2009, the 47th floor of the Austonian was poured, meaning the Austonian surpassed the Frost Bank Tower to become the 2nd tallest building in Austin, Texas. On July 1, 2009, The Austonian overtook 360 Condominiums to become the tallest residential building in Austin. Eventually, the building finished the exterior in 2010, a period of almost 2.5 years since its groundbreaking. The Austonian opened to host the 2010 Women's Symphony League Designer Showhouse the weekend of May 15–16, 2010. The Showhouse was the last opportunity for the public to see the property before residents began moving in the building in June 2010. The Austonian received a Four Star rating from Austin Energy Green Building in November 2010, making it the only residential high rise building in Downtown Austin to receive such a rating.
Very excited about Austin Psych Fest again this year (also called Levitation Fest). Last year was amazing!

This was shot right before sundown. The skies were dull and gray. I really didn't like how this shot came out at first and I wasn't going to post it. A few tweaks here and there and this is what I got.
Thanks for stopping by and looking.

Austin, Texas in early December 2014. Plenty of color in this rapidly growing city.
