See you in here, tonight!

The Austin PhotoWalk

Get all the PhotoWalk Details on Plancast. See you at the Driskill at 6:30 PM ! ๐Ÿ™‚

Join us Live on TWIT

I know most of you don’t live in Austin or are not visiting for SXSW, so you can see part of it live on TWIT. We should be on live there about 7:30 to 7:45PM (CST) or so. Leo is broadcasting from Momo’s, which is down 6th street, and it will be one of the stops along the photowalk. He’s going to pop out of his studio and come into the street to say hello to all of us. It won’t be long, but you’ll get a little hint into the action.

World Record – Single Location PhotoWalk

I really have no idea how many people will show up, but on Saturday at the Diggnation party, I met with a couple of judges and officials that keep track of this sort of thing. We came up with a way to count everyone, and then we’ll submit it all to the official body. So, if you come along, you’ll get on Leo’s live TWIT show and be part of a world-record event – cool!

Submit your PhotoWalk to Flickr

Half of the PhotoWalk is sharing and commenting. So, get your stuff up on our PhotoWalk SXSW Flickr Group! Thank you to Tom Hall for setting up that group!

Daily Photo – Inside the Driskill

Well here it is, the awesome hotel where we are having the event. Many people agree it’s the most beautiful hotel in Austin and is over 100 years old. They’ve always been very kind to me — we had our workshop in there, a book signing, and all other sorts of events. One little thing that most people don’t know — the 4th and 5th floors have beautiful paintings and art hanging on all the walls of the hallway. It’s worth a trip up there just to wander around the halls and see the art!

  • Wish I could be there! Sounds fantastic. Beautiful image, as well. I really have to check that hotel out next time I’m in Austin.

  • For some reason that shot reminds me of the Titanic… Or at least a luxury cruise ship! Love the glossy feel, fantastic.
    Regarding the photowalk, you know I’ll be there in spirit! Albeit from 8000 miles away, haha…

    Great image – I agree with Eden – it does have the grandeur and opulence of an expensive cruise ship.

    The Austin photowalk will be great – I wish I could be a part of that record bid but i’m sure that the people will turn out in force and make it happen and that there will be no arrests (only kidding hehe)! ๐Ÿ˜›

    PS – I have signed up for a 14 day trial on Smugmug which i’m liking already – it seems like a great place where they want you to develop your site as you progress as an artist plus i like how you can sell prints easily. I would have signed up but as i’m saving for my trip to Orlando in September I have promised only to sign up if I can get 1000 views during the 14 days. So far I have 5 views to the gallery i’ve created there that includes my favourite works to date so i’ve added the link here so you guys acn go there and check it out for yourselves.

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend folks ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a beautiful photo of the Driskill Hotel, Trey. I would so love to be there and go on your walk!!!! Enjoy it, everyone that makes it!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
    The news coming out of Japan just keeps getting worse. My heart is breaking for that country and it’s people. Everytime I read or watch about it on the news, it brings tears to my eyes. I know you must feel awful, too, Trey!!! All the pretty places where you have taken photos gone, some of those lovely cherry trees probably destroyed by the Tsunami. I’m glad I saved so many of your photos from Japan. Please keep praying, everyone. Love from Montana ๐Ÿ™ .

    P.S. Andy, I clicked on your site and looked at your gallary, beautiful photos. I left a comment, too ๐Ÿ˜‰

    THe picture is excellent, except that the colour on the pillars are different. One is brown, the other is red. I assume you edited it that way, but as the majority of pillars are red, I think you should’ve edited all of them red. Apart from that; great shot!

  • Wish I could be there…great picture.

  • Thanks!

    Hampus – yes yes mysteries abound hehe..

    Eden – interesting idea there.. never thought about it but you are right!

  • Wow, great pics !!!

  • Amazing shot. Your work is very inspiring to me. I wish I could one meet you at this photowalk, but I am all the way in NY.

  • Dan

    Dammit why do I have to live in the U.K :(… I’d love to be there Trey. Ah well, One day I’ll come to Austin for holiday :).

    That place looks the bomb, great venue for it ๐Ÿ™‚ You have style Trey haha.

    I look forward to trying to find video’s of it online. I hope you have fun and everyone enjoys it!

    Please check out my photos and please tell me what you think.

    Beautiful shot of the Driskill Trey – it’s such a super hotel and so full of history. Have fun on the photowalk tonight!

  • Patrick Ahles

    Fabulous shot! I like the shadows on the left set of pillars.

    Looks like you need some sensor cleaning, BTW. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Dan

  • Simon Morris
