I went out to Luckenbach, TX last Saturday. I've always wanted to go there since it has a sort of legendary history with Willie Nelson's 4th of July concerts and other things. There's not much there other than a post office that has been converted to a souvenir store, a dance hall and a few other buildings. Out behind the store is a stage and some picnic tables. Looks like a fun place to see live music some time. But, at the time I went, there was no live music and it was pretty dead. So, I took some pictures of course!
This shot is from inside the post office. It's a shot of some hats - obviously - along with a painting of Hondo Crouch. He's quite a character and the guy who basically turned Luckenbach into the music venue that it is now, from what I understand. He had quite an imagination and might have been a little off his rocker, in a good way. Click here to read more...
This shot is a little perplexing to me. I wanted it to be totally symmetrical, but the way everything lined up, I had to center the image based on the way the hats were arranged or with the light and the painting being in the center. I opted for the latter and centered the shot on the painting and the light above. I hope it worked, but you can tell me otherwise if you are so inclined.
