I had a serious case of cabin fever the last Saturday in April. I had a couple of errands that I needed to complete, and decided to add a Saturday morning drive to my list of things to do. My first stop was to JoAnn Fabrics. I watched several Sue Bryce videos that week, and I was inspired to complete some self-portraits. When I arrived at Jo-Ann’s, it was a little after 11:00am which is when the stored open, but there was already a pretty large group of people present. The store was handing out numbers for admittance into the store. I took a number to wait in line. However, I had one location that I had to visit on Saturday. Who knew how long this would take. While I was waiting for my number to be called, I placed an order online for curbside pick-up. The convenience of the Internet! With that done, I headed to my destination.
After I visited my destination, I headed back towards Austin. I was in search of a location where I could park my car, and stare out water. The Colorado River runs through Austin, and there are plenty of parks where a stream runs through it. However, I didn’t plan well. There was one park that I wanted to visit called Onion Creek Park. I decided to visit it, and see if there was quick access to water. Umm, no success.
I decided to head towards home, and on the way, I passed downtown Austin. I took a detour because I wanted to see if there were any photographic opportunities. I don’t remember the exit or the name of the street. As I drove down the street, I could see people on both sides of the street, and they were painting murals. I wanted to capture the current state of Austin, and this called to me. I was able to grab a few frames. I’ve often thought about driving to downtown Austin for a photo walk, but I’m #teamstayhome.
