Last weekend the group met up at and wandered around the Spider House, just north of UT. Then after breakfast at Trudy's, Timothy Sens and I walked into campus for awhile.
Being a typical weekend in Austin, there were some unusual sights. Like the guy in a public park doing yoga with nothing on but the radio, and a couple on a balcony doing things better left indoors. But there were also a lot of great things to photograph.
One of the things that I love about making a practice of photography is that it teaches me to see the beauty in the mundane. I'm a firm believer in the idea that if a person is able to see the good where others see only bad, then they will always have something to give.
Through the practice of photography we learn the power of things like perspective and composition. We learn to see and make use of details that are often over looked. And because it's a practice that we do wherever we are at the time, as opposed to only in amazing places like Yosemite or Niagara Falls, we learn to make the best use of what is available to us.
Here are of a few of the photos I took while wandering around the Spider House and at UT.
