Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #188: A Special Place

This week, Karina (murtaghsmeadow) leads LAPC: A Special Place. She encourage us to share “the places that are or were special to you and if you can tell us why.”

Austin is the Texas state capitol, Home of the University of Texas of Austin and many high-tech companies. Lady Bird Lake is a special place for college students and energetic/innovative high tech people to paddle, hike, jog, and bike the trails.

Further south of Austin is San Antonio. The Riverwalk is a landmark of the city, and a special place for tourists and local people. It’s uniquely situated at the lower lever of the downtown, filled with trees, bushes, and flowers. You can stroll the lush riverside paths lined with cypress trees, restaurants, shops, museums, and recreation spots. The weekend marketplace provides fresh veggies, fruits, local bakeries, and handcrafts.

The Texas countryside is special to me. Driving through these winding roads, if I’m lucky, I get to take photos of cattle or horses.

Ahh… Wildflowers of Texas. In spring, you can drive hours through Texas freeways or many country roads to enjoy wildflowers. It’s special to all Texans. I was really, really lucky to capture this scene:

Many thanks to Anne Sandler for her Water challenge. Wonderful to enjoy all your beautiful and creative photos and the places you have visited.

We hope you will join Karina this week. We look forward to seeing what makes a place special for you. Please click to see her beautiful photos. Remember to link to Karina’s post here and use the Lens-Artists tag to help us find you.
