Today I took photos on Lake Austin of Aric Denton and friends teaching children the art of wakeboarding at a summer camp they do every week. There were a lot of skiers out there too, so can’t leave them out. I wanted to share some of the shots I captured. I go back tomorrow to photograph the kids I wasn’t able to see ski earlier this afternoon.

Tucked in a neighborhood just off Lamar sits a vacant lot that has been captured by some of the area’s finest graffiti artists. These colorful writers have turned this jungle of cement and grass into a landmark that is worth exploring. My brother and I got some footage and I wanted to share some of the photos with you. The images tell their own story.
My brother and I found an abandoned factory just south of downtown in the King William District. In fact, it sits southbound along the river walk as you’re passing the popular Blue Star Brewery. Of course we couldn’t help but question what the view was like from the top of this thing.
We got a great deal of footage to be archived and we now know of an incredible location for future film projects. As I explored the grimy ruins of the ghost factory, I imagined a group of misfit children using this as their “base”, alerting the others as “intruders” draw near. It’s their fortress, they are the kings of this industrial castle.
Expect an urban exploration video at the end of summer. Below is a bird thing we ran into along the river walk. It alerted us as we passed asking for help. “What is it” you ask? I asked him and even he wasn’t entirely sure.
Check out the last time JD and I worked together roaming around Austin.
The other day I visited Darwin’s Pub on 6th street to see Quinn Walton, an old friend of mine, jam with some Austin locals. In fact, they play every Tuesday through Saturday at this location. I captured some photos with my 50 mm lens so they can use them on their website and social media pages. I’ll be visiting them more often this summer and hope to do some video work with them soon as well.
