Austin, Texas in Black and White

This post is my photographic travelogue of my recent trip to Austin, Texas.

I’d just returned from New York City when I turned around and went with my partner John to visit his son who recently moved to Austin, Texas. It was a quick 3 day trip and it was my first return to Austin, Texas since I used to live in Texas over 25 years ago.

I love taking photos when I travel and Austin lended itself (at least in my mind) to Black & White photography with my camera phone. Here are a sampling of my photos from my trip to Austin, Texas.

I had a wonderful time in Austin, Texas and I had the best beef brisket I’ve ever had in my life at the Rolling Smoke BBQ food truck. I also saw my first Lone Star Beer chandelier (see 2nd photo), a sight I can never “un-see” (smile)!

I remember moving from New York to Texas so many years ago when my late husband was in the military and having complete culture shock as a New Yorker. But I adapted and met many great friends; and now having lived in 5 states around the country it is easier to acculturate when moving (but I have no plans to leave Colorado).

That is it for traveling for now, am currently “travel out” and have a bit of traveling fatigue. It is good to just be home for a while!

  1. I love the black and whites. I buddy of mine I worked with, retired around the same time I did, and is pursuing photography as a hobby. These pictures reminded me of some of the thing he posts in and around Los Angeles where he lives with his family. Well done!

  2. Hi!
    The Lone Star Beer chandelier is really fun and sonTexas
    The photos did render well in black and white – although when I read the title I was expecting more people in some of the photos –
    Not disappointed though – because you chose a good variety and the post had a bit of a timeless feel.
    I think I expected to see bikers too – anyhow / i know what you mean with travel fatigue –
    I am surprised more travelers do not share about this – but there can be an exhausting side to travel (short or long trips) and while it depends on the person of course – and we do acclimate to having a suitcase always ready in the closet – there are times When fatigue really sets in.
