Waltz Across Texas

We love to go to the Sunday evening concerts at a local winery.  Out in the middle of a big field, a couple of hundred people bring in chairs, blankets, and picnics for an evening listening to a local band.  Everyone is laid back – babies are cooed over, kids strike up instant friendships and play kickball or turn cartwheels on the perimeter.

We enjoy our pinot grigio and prosciutto, sit back and listen, and toast the sunset.  And when it’s time to go, we don’t have to worry about lost cars or traffic jams!

(If you mouse over the pictures, the color and contrast get better.)

This is not the best picture, but you can see how open and green the surroundings are.


The Lost & Nameless Orchestra

“If you’re gonna play in Texas, you gotta have fiddles in the band….”

This is the Lost and Nameless Orchestra from Austin, on June 22.   All the band members played several instruments – I think the lead singer played four or five.  And she writes her own songs.  And she just graduated from high school!


Waltzing on a Texas summer night. Or possibly two-stepping.

I was trying out my camera’s “night portrait” setting.  I also left the shutter open and swung the camera around to see what light effects I could get.

I did this on purpose! It wasn’t because I had just split a bottle of wine with my sister.


This is my 8:00 – 9:00 pm entry for the 1 Day 1 World Project. Lisa at Northwest Frame of Mind (the home of the 1 Day 1 World Project) is also showcasing concert photos for her entry this week – it’s fun to see the different takes on this typical summer event!
