Fun Photos from Fredericksburg

Last Saturday morning, October 19th, the Austin Shutterbug Club had an outing to the lovely little town of Fredericksburg in central Texas, near the Hill Country.

Only 5 people showed up. Not sure why. Don’t really care. Those of us that did make it, had a really fun time!

All of these photos were taken with my Olympus OM-D E-M5 camera, and the Olympus 12-50mm f/3.5-6.3 “kit lens”.  I also had 4 excellent prime lenses in my camera bag, but I never used any of them.

I did not take any “street photography” photos of people doing interesting things in their environment.

That morning, I was only interested in taking photos of whatever color, pattern, or object that caught my attention.

Snapshots? Sure. Why not?

There are only a couple of photos that the viewer would recognize as someplace in Fredericksburg. The majority of them could have been taken anywhere.

It is late October, and Halloween is near.

I believe that these two steeples belong to St. Mary’s Catholic Church.

That was as far west as we walked. On the way back, I noticed that there seemed to be lots of places for people to sit along the sidewalk.

Some seating was pretty rustic.

And some was rather unusual.

I wonder how comfortable that seat would have been for the framer sitting on his tractor years ago!

Here’s a photo that even says “Fredericksburg” in the photo. This is the 2nd story of the building. I even used Lightroom 5’s new healing brush feature to remove the power line that crossed in front of it.

The 5 of us had a great German lunch at a place near the west end of town, named Friedhelm’s Bavarian Inn. I had the Jager Schntizel. It was great!

Thank you for stopping by and visiting my blog today.
