360 Bridge After Dark

360 Bridge After Dark – Austin 360 Bridge at dark with a little color still left in the sky from the sunset as the car trails cross the bridge. The 360 bridge is a popular spot to photograph the sunset but it is also a heavyily used road that why I did a long exposure to show how busy this road is as it is a connection from north to south of the city as the car trail show after dark not someplace to be at 5 pm if you can help it. This is on the edge of the Texas hill country near Austin with Lake Austin for boating, picnicing and other recreational activities so it is a popular place.

Austin Aerial Skyline Twilight View

Austin Aerial Skyline Twilight View – Austin Aerial skyline view at Twilight taken from a birds eye view. This is another Austin skyline aerial image of the Austin twilight view looking down Lady Bird Lake with the city modern high rise buildings along the shoreline of the lake and looking north over IH35 where you can see the UT stadium and Erwin Center in the distant view. You can see Austin tallest building the Austonian which for a few months longer will hold that title till the Independent is completed sometime before the end of the year. It has been hard to capture images of Austin skyline from anywhere along the hike and bike trail because they are constantly adding new building along the shoreline. About the time you think they are done new cranes show up. Just recently found out that we will have two new buildings along the town lake shoreline once more and they will be taller than the Independent so its title will not last long. Just like all good things they don’t last long you can barely see the top of the Frost building, at one time it was the tallest building in the skyline. The cityscape has been constantly changing for years and I guess until all the land is gone it will continue. Actually from this spot in the 70’s you had a straight on view of the Texas Capital those days have been gone for many years now.

Stars Over Prada Marfa

The middle of the West Texas desert isn’t the first place you’d expect to find a fully stocked Prada store but just a few miles outside of Valentine Texas that what you will find. Ok it not an actual Prada store its front door doesn’t open and it only has right shoes and the purses have no bottom even if you find one you want you can’t buy it. You will need to go to real Prada store for that. Needless to say there are some that will do anything to shop there and it has been vandalized several times now so the creators put in a security system with gps devices in the purses and camera and stronger glass for those considering a dark night break in. Other wise it is a great place to drive out to and get your selfie of you and Prada Marfa store to prove you were there if thats your thing. The two artist that put this together Elmgreen and Dragset decided this was the place for their art display. Maybe they were trying to prove that people will drive to the end of the planet to get a selfie not sure what it represents, consumerism, or humor whatever it has made a mark on the tiny town of Valentine. The one nice thing is that made it of biodegradable adobe like material so over time it will go back to it natural state. The spent around 80,000 on this so hopefully it will take a while so they get there money out of it.

On our latest trip to west Texas we decided to see if we could capture the famous Prada Marfa building with a background of stars. The one thing about this area of west Texas is its wonderful dark skies where you can actully capture stars. The road between Marfa and Valentine was so dark we thought we might have missed it because it was so dark, but finally, there it was just feet from the road in all it glory waiting for the next photo or selfie, that seems to draw people out here. The permanet exhibit was created by two artist Elmgreen and Dragset in October 2005 to resemble an actual Prada store. The two refer to their work as pop architectual land art with a bit of humor. They built this structure about 24 miles outside of Marfa in a city called Valentine Texas population around 200. To make it more interesting they found the least likely place to find a store like this and stuck in in far west texas. They added only right shoes and the purses have no bottoms. They have been vandalize several times now I guess people in this area like prada more than they knew. I am not sure what they were saying or not saying about their art. Maybe they were making fun of consumerism but you would have to ask them. As a photographer it great fun to shoot such a unique image. After the latest vandalism they have install cameras and the purses have GPS devices inside that detect movement so making it more difficult to shop there in the future. We had been to see the Marfa Lights many times but never venture over to Valentine to see the Prada Art display and we were glad we finally made it. Having this wonderful starry night sky really helped it pop out as a winning venture for us. Thanks for looking.
