  empty stadium in the early evening sun
IMG_1208

Look at that long, long shadow... this is the sort of photo you might expect from Texas. No green, no clouds. Everything dry and hot and empty. Tomorrow we will show you the view in a different direction from this stadium, which is towards the edge of the city and used for various high school football games. But most of the time it is deserted, which is great because it just adds to the grand effect overall. A modern colosseum, complete with floodlights, right here in Texas!
 
Comments:
cool photo! the colours and shadows are great.
 
You know, a stadium in Texas just about says it all. I've never known folks as crazy for (American) football as Texans. This captures a certain stillness and I like the subtle colors. Keep cool!

If that's the one I think it is, it's on Ben White - and ironically, the location of the "Sustainable Shoppers Ball". Nothing says sustainable more than a couple of miles of asphalt which only gets used a couple of times a week during a couple of months of the year, I always thought.

A picture a day from the capital of slackerdom! (unless we had too many mango margaritas the night before). Always weird, sometimes wonderful... put on your flip-flops, grab a breakfast taco, and hop in the VW bus with us for a spin around town :)
