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.
Reminder: You can always view any photo at a larger size by just clicking on it. You will then need to use your browser’s “Back Button” to return to my story.
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!
