I always enjoy spending the day outside shooting track and field events. This weekend was one of those times with the state track and field meet happening down in Austin. And to add more excitement to the trip, New Deal won both the boy’s and girl’s team trophies. Anyways, here’s a fraction of the pictures I took from the three-day event.
Thursday, we woke up at the crack of dawn to take Carlos to Franklin Barbecue. The field events didn’t start until late in the afternoon. Which allowed him time to sit in line all day for the brisket, ribs and turkey. We also went downtown for some Voodoo Donuts. Even though the trip was work focused, I was able to get about 15 rolls of film developed at Holland Photo Imaging. So, you can expect to see more about those photos when I finish scanning the pictures.
Right as the field events were about to begin, lightning struck in the area. Eventually causing an hour or so delay to the day.
Friday was our busiest day by far. We arrived at the track around 7:30 a.m. and finally left shortly before midnight.
Things calmed down slightly on Saturday. Our first events began at 10 a.m. There was an extended break around lunchtime that allowed me to pick up the film that I dropped off on Thursday. However, we still didn’t leave the stadium until the final events were over at 10:30 p.m.
