    Well dang. I got snagged away off to NE ft worth for the weekend. And next weekend I've got moto gp tickets at new track in Austin.
    When is good for everyone?
    Hopefully it can be a once a month thing?

    You don't need to go all the way out to Katy ... There's one around the corner here in Clear Lake

    When I go out shooting, I always feel that my choices right around here are limited: the woods in George Bush park or the woods in one of the sections of Bear Creek park. If I'm not in the mood for woods, I head further west to at least Eagle Lake or northwest to the many small towns between here and Austin or east into the city. This is kind of a photographic no-man's land.

    Exactly!! I feel the same. Living in big city has it's advantages but when it come to photography, there is not much to take pictures of. I specially feel envious of people who post great landscapes, birds and wildlife from around their house. :mad:

    What about Chappell Hill and/or Brenham. Lots of nice older churches and buildings plus Blue Bell ice cream.

    Somehow we all got distracted and dropped this. I'm still interested. Anyone else in Austin interested?

    I'm in Pflugerville. Now that summer is here, I would like to do early morning photowalks on the weekends in downtown Austin or South Congress near Gueros. Maybe we could find a model or two.

    I'm in jonestown and always love shooting in downtown Austin. I can do early morning and also if we do later in the afternoon (and yes it will be hot) then the streets are full of interesting people so the city provides the models. Other than the 16th of June (fathers day), I'm available. Anyone else is welcome to join us.
