Experimenting with the Pixlr App. The original photo (below) needed to be sharpened and adjusted for some brighter colors. I like the edited version better.
I took a walk this afternoon to examine the condition of the Colorado River at the floodgates of Tom Miller Dam. I started at the dam, and then went down for a loop around the trail at Red Bud Isle. The Isle was partially flooded, but some of the trail remained accessible. After taking some photos of the flooded state of the river, I returned back up the hill to end up at the dock across from the Hula Hut restaurant. It turned out to be a nice walk, and a great evening.
After work today, I walked along the shoreline of Emma Long Metropolitan Park and then beat the heat by going for a sunset swim. The summertime people were out in full force.
Here are some sunset photos of the Pennybacker Bridge. I stopped to enjoy the view on my way home this evening.
A rainy view of Lake Austin and the 360 Bridge.
On Richard Garriott’s lakeside property in Austin, there is a replica of the Globe Theater called the Curtain Theater. A performance of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” was scheduled for tonight, but then the rains came. The show was cancelled at the last minute, and then the rains went away. Oh well, what can you do?
