First Presbyterian Church of Bartlett

IMG_1986

I found this old gem of a structure in Bartlett Texas today.  It is the First Presbyterian Church of Bartlett, and is obviously in need of repairs.  According to the church records, construction of the church began on March 7, 1899.  I was able to walk around and take photos of the exterior, but there was no way to get inside.  The moon obliged and posed for a photo behind the bell tower.

SXSW – Macnas

IMG_0852

Just when you thought SXSW had served up all of its insanity, along comes a performance company from Ireland.  Macnas describes themselves as a team that is “bringing stunning large-scale images and brilliant chaos to the streets of the world.”  They paraded down Sixth Street for SXSW and pretty much set the place on fire.  These photos will give you an idea of their brand of chaos, but please go and see them in person if you ever have the opportunity.

The Music Run

  
The Travis County Expo Center has a nice hilltop view of downtown Austin.  The following set of photos will let you know what it is like to participate in the Music Run.  Me and my bad knee cheated and walked the course tonight.  This is a wonderful event and you should join in if it shows up in your town.  My only regret was that I didn’t get a better photo of the Left Shark.  I showed up early, had lots of fun, and was one of the last people to leave.
