Austin, Texas – Capitol Building Stairs

From the wonderful Austin Capitol Building….for some reason I am always drawn to these stairs.  I brought a co-worker with me to downtown Austin recently and decided to just take photos using my 50 1.4 lens.  It was a nice change…no tripod and a light load to carry.  I tried to capture shots I usually do not take.  It was fun! I need to use this lens more!   I do enjoy this type of photography.  Look for more like this soon.  Expanding ones styles is always wonderful!
