As part of the ACL festival last weekend, Dell and Google+ hosted a photowalk in Austin where a bunch of photographers got together to walk along the lake and snap photos. And anyone was invited! Even the @scobleizer was there! (That’s Robert Scoble for you non-tech geeks.)
We started the morning by meeting near the lake to get a group photo.
We saw this mysterious, futuristic contraption on the lake as we walked along the trail. Someone said it was a docking station for kayaks and canoes. I think it was probably a time machine.
A photographer brought a model. She was a real trooper – she even laid down in the dirt at one point.
This was my entry to the contest at the end. It is the bottom of what used to be a fountain. Very sad – that’s what the drought has done to Austin. Crumbled under my feet.
This father sun duo drove up from San Antonio very early that morning.
Thomas Hawk walks along the trail with Dave Cohen and Vincent Mo from Google+.
Robert Scoble chats up some photographers during our break for breakfast tacos.
After we arrived back at our destination, all the photographers picked one photo to upload on one of the Dell laptops they had setup in the hotel. The hosts of the event judged the photos and handed out prizes to the winners. A lucky few won tickets to the ACL festival!
