When you head over to the local church after work with hopes of catching the rise of the Supermoon, but you realize that you and your camera are better suited for sunset photos. No problems, the moonrise was still pretty.
Some of the art for sale at the local Taco Joint – Veracruz All Natural. And they have yummy tacos and beverages too.
Catching a parking lot sunset at Starbucks and drinking iced green tea on a lovely evening in Central Texas.
You know the kind. Those nights when you think you are cool and can search around the local church building for some eerie photo opportunities. The moon is shining brightly at first and then it seeks cover behind a blanket of clouds. You walk out to the cemetery behind the church, and then your nerves kick in, even though you are still on the paved road, but very alone. Every nighttime sound is a horror waiting to happen. Your pace quickens as you return to the parking lot for one more photo and then a quick escape to the familiarity and comfort of your vehicle. Whew! That was exciting!
There was a small swarm of Monarch butterflies in the community garden this afternoon. They are migrating south to escape the cold weather. There were so many that they often had to share the purple blossoms that they enjoy so much. Photography is challenging, as they move so fast and the blossoms sway in the wind. The reward is to capture just the right image to share with everyone. Enjoy!
We were treated to a short performance by Round Rock Ballet Folklorico at a work event for lunch today. I took a few photos with my aging iPod Touch. The dances were great, and you should check out their shows sometime if you find yourself in the area.
Welcome to Round Rock! You never can have enough tacos in one city. Especially when you make tacos that can rival those from Torchy’s. Veracruz All Natural is not a fancy place, but they know tacos and smoothies. Please support this family restaurant if you find yourself just north of Austin.
Besides having the most awesome lamps that hang from the ceiling, Chennai Cafe has great South Indian food. When you walk in the door, the fragrant aromas hit you and you find yourself curious about the dining experience that awaits. Their website explains things in the following way.
For lunch today, I enjoyed the Lamb Kurma, rice, Naan, and tea. It was all wonderful, with just the right amount of spice. And did I mention their beautiful lamps that are ripe for use with the Prisma App?
