We got a little bit of rain today in San Marcos, and it left behind some cool temperatures and a most beautiful rainbow.
The bluebonnet fields were cool. The views of downtown from St. Edward’s University were nice. But the ladybugs posing for photos were by far the best.
As per the website, “The Skyspace is a naked-eye observatory in the heart of the main campus, where visitors view the sky through an opening in the ceiling called an oculus.” It can be found on the third floor rooftop garden of the Student Activity Center on the University of Texas campus. On rainy days, you get nice images of gray, black, and white.
This is an awesome time in Central Texas. The wildflowers are beginning to pop up. This groovy patch can be found at Park Hills Baptist Church, and there is also a nice view of downtown Austin from this site. Have fun if you go, and beware of the traffic on the nearby road. 🙂
The view of Downtown Austin from the Travis County Expo Center at sunset is always beautiful. If you are there for an evening event, just stroll out to the back parking lot and enjoy.
There were plenty of colorful displays in the shops of Fredericksburg as they invited Christmas shoppers in for a look around.
This event for the East Austin Studio Tour was pretty cool. Imagine Art is a large art space on the East side set up to assist artists with and without disabilities. As a bonus tonight, they hosted some performances by a classical music group called Tetractys. It was a good idea to mix the art exhibit with performance. Also, sock monkeys hold a special place in my heart.
In case you missed it, here are the highlights from Just the Tip: Street Art From El Paso and Juarez. It was a tiny, tiny venue with a few interesting pieces of artwork.
This art installation is called Geoscape. 30 Tetrahedrons set up in the park. 🙂
