I’ve finally had a bit of time to sit at the computer and wade through photography files. This image is part of a six-piece series I took last summer in downtown Austin. Street art is prevalent in downtown; it only adds to the “keep Austin weird” vibe that the area so avidly portrays.
If there’s one thing Austinites love, it’s their musicians. Willie Nelson is somewhat of a folk hero in the area.
The streets were packed and the hardest part of the day was waiting for people to clear so I could have a clean line to these pillars on an old theatre. I ended up simply setting up and waiting for the traffic to drop; the entire series of six took no less than two hours to shoot. Much of the time was spent self-teaching how to bounce light off the neighboring buildings.
Somehow that was never too much of a problem on the rivers of Montana.
You’ve got to make do with what you’ve got available.
