Memories of Austin


One of the wonderful things about digital cameras, is that you aren’t afraid to take lots and lots of photos, because you don’t have to pay for developing. The only problem is that you can end up with hundreds of photos. I use two photo editing programs for storing,organizing, and editing my photos. I purchased Elements 13 by photoshop, and I also use the free program Google Photos. Even with the help of photo editing programs, you still have to remember to delete photos you no longer need or want.That is what I was doing when I came across my photos from a trip to Austin Texas, to visit our son and daughter-in-law in October 2013. The beautiful sunflowers above were waiting for me when I arrived at their home. I’d forgotten how beautiful they were. My¬† daughter-in-law had remembered they are my favorite flower. I was thrilled to find them in my room.
Our son is an expert standup paddleboarder. Here he is on a near by river. I was and still am amazed at the clear water. We had such a fun day and the weather was perfect.

I love this butterfly chair at a local botanical garden. My daughter in-law and I spent an afternoon in the gardens and she looks beautiful as a butterfly.

I didn’t take this photo of our grand-pup, Joy on that visit, but don’t want her to feel left out. She was definitely part of that wonderful trip to Austin. I remember her happily greeting me every morning when I came out of my bedroom.

Organizing your digital photographs may seem like a bit of a chore, but it is definitely worth it when they remind us of some of the grand adventures in our lives.
