Walking to Barton Springs (Fork it over, Austin! - Part 25)

Another food-less post. Sorry.

On the beautifully sunny last day of the trip, I decided to take a walk out to Barton Springs. Here are some of my favorite photos from the walk (on which I spent some time pestering birds and squirrels with the zoom lens I hardly use, met my pseudo-doppelganger, and saw even more examples of Austin's happy graffiti.)


Structures and graffiti:

And my doppelganger! Well, not really, but basically I was approached by a photographer who asked if he could borrow me for a minute. Turns out he was a with another photographer; she and I were wearing the same color shirt and both carrying large cameras and large black camera bags, so we did a quick photo shoot. Fun! (The first photo below is by Marco Guiterrez. Check out his work.)

Barton Springs itself is nice, but it was extremely crowded, so I just quickly waded into an area set off from the main pool. (Kind of chilly!) I didn't take any photos because there were a lot of people walking around in bathing suits, and I didn't want to be a creep. It's a pretty place, though; definitely worth checking out!
