Austin, Texas – Cowboy Boots

Here is one more shot from the cool store called Allen’s Boots in downtown Austin.   I gave it a Fractalius touch and here is the original HDR version…below.  Both cool…so a double shot…Texas style!

Austin, Texas – Allen’s Boots (HDR)

If you are in Texas, a must stop is a boot shop!  In Austin we have quite a few.  Downtown off Congress Ave you can find the wonderful Allen’s Boots.  Not only boots, but western wear as well (cowboy hats, shirts, belts).  Not sure, but maybe you can find a lasso???  It is great to see all the boot styles and colors.  Most Austin photographers have taken their share of boot photos…this was my first!  Austin is a college town…the University of Texas (UT) Longhorns.  The boots above are perfect for the UT fan!    Hook em Horns!!

On a side note, I had my speech last nite at the Austin SMUG Meeting. I’d like to thank Jason St. Peter (Blog: 50% Chance of Rain)…he runs the meetings…for letting me speak about IR Photography.  I had a wonderful time and it was a great pleasure to meet all the fantastic people that attended last nite!  We had a great turnout.  It was my first photography speech ever and I loved it!  Thanks again everyone!  Hope you are all IR experts!
