Sunday Morning at Mueller

Every weekend a few great friends of mine and I go out somewhere in, or around, Austin to take photos and get breakfast. Our weekly walks are primarily intended to be a contemplative photography practice and an opportunity to get together, but I’ve learned they’re also an opportunity to get to know a different part of the city.


Last weekend we paid a visit to the Mueller area, starting our walk at the Dell Children’s Medical Center and discovering we could have breakfast at one of our favorite downtown coffee shops, Halcyon, which has a new location at Mueller. And on the way, we walked around the lake and through the awesome farmer’s market.


Mueller is a newer part of Austin, built on the site of the old Mueller airport, which was the primary airport in Austin from 1936 through 1999. And, it seems that like many parts of the city, construction is ongoing and new places are always opening. I’m looking forward to planning several more visits to this area in the not too distant future.


If you are interested, here are a few of the photos that I took during our wander around Mueller.


One small detail, just some white lines and the blue sky, at the AISD Performing Arts Center.

I love the multitude of new and complex patterns created by mixing two or more simple patterns.

Just two balloons.

If you look on Google maps (satellite view) at the site of this building, all you see is dirt and grass. What a difference.

The Dell Children's Medical Center building is really very interesting and this photo does not do it justice. I was just caught by the reflected lines in the window.

I have a thing for patterns I suppose.

In and around the Dell Children's Medical Center you will find a lot of color in many sizes, shapes, and materials. I thought these colored class squares did a nice job of dressing up an image of a tree.
