This past weekend I attended Austin City Limits Festival. Thankfully, we went weekend 1, cause today (during weekend 2) the festival got rained out, so everyone attending weekend two unfortunately missed out on the fantastic bands that played on Sunday.
Apart from almost passing out twice from dehydration and having to visit the medical tent, this year was a success! I ate delicious food and hit up some favorites (Noble Sandwich Co, Frank and Peached Tortilla), and got to see a bunch of great bands including The National, Junip, Atoms for Peace, The Joy Formidable, Franz Ferdinand, Local Natives…. etc.. etc…
Here are some of the photos I took with my iphone during the 3 days of the festival last weekend…
This weekend I had the pleasure of attending and being a part of my friends Chris and Kathy’s wedding. I met Chris at the beginning of 2006, right after I moved to Austin when I didn’t know anyone here except for my sister. I worked with him for a couple of years, and he was my first good friend in Austin, inviting me to lunch and to hang out with his friends. Through him, I met Kathy and became great friends with her as well. We have all spent many nights out dancing, evenings gathered in my old apartment to watch crazy MTV shows, headed out on bbq adventures, and out exploring great cocktails and of course drinking Lone Star.
Here are a few photos I snapped on my iphone throughout the day yesterday. Congrats to the two of them on a phantastic wedding and the beginning of a wonderful marriage!
This year, I was lucky enough to photograph for SXSW. Which means I spent the entire 9 days walking around downtown and the Convention Center, capturing photos of panels, events, people, etc. And here are the photos I got in-between doing all of my assignments….
I decided to have a little fun with these, so I edited them all using VSCO Film.
Revolution exhibit downtown was really cool.
Musicians. With accordions!
Bikes are an essential mode of transportation during SXSW.
And then you’re walking along Sixth Street and see this happening….
SXSW isn’t just music, it’s movies (and interactive) too!
Downtown Austin is all dressed up with pretty lights.
Walking down the street and seeing giant pink tumbleweeds? Not too surprising.
And running into teen rapper Kitty Pryde!
May have transported back to the 1920s at some point..
Accidentally over-exposed this photo. Oh well.
They were a pretty fantastic band called “In the Valley Below”
Wearing sunglasses on the back of your head was never cool, but people still do it..
Mohawk is one of my favorite music venues
Someone is buying their friends a bunch of shots
This wall was blank at the beginning of the week.
This weekend I had the pleasure of attending an Herb Garden Workshop at Contigo put on by the Wellgro Co. Not only did I learn so much about what I was doing wrong with my plants and how to keep them alive, but I got to support students at Travis High School, meet lovely Austinites, and have a delicious lunch prepared by Chef Andrew Wiseheart at Contigo and some of the Travis High students. All around, an incredible 2 hours spent on a Saturday.
For a more in-depth look at the workshop, head over to this blog post from my friend Chris. He captured the event in such a wonderful way.
