Naked Cowgirl Déjà vu

I had a déjà vu moment at Barton Springs in Austin, Texas this week.  Before my eyes, in the fashion of our city Springs in the 60’s, stood a topless cowgirl cooling off in the 68 degree water amidst the humanity and canines seeking shelter from the heat.

A few years before I walked into Times Square to encounter the well known “Naked Cowgirl”.  Am I destined to find these cowgirls amongst the masses – their bikini bottoms beckoning?

iPhoneography in a College Course

English College Offers iPhoneography Course In my perusals, I found this link that iPhoneography has made it to college. In ENGLAND. This Austinite thinks that would be dandy!

My name is Tina Weitz, and I have an addiction. Yes, I am crazy in love with my iPhone camera and apps.

The research I have been doing for my upcoming class on June 10, Addictus ∝ iPhoneography, has re-inspired me all over again as to the power of this emerging artistic medium. Our phones are with us most of the time, which in turn keeps my mind’s eye open more often. In the next few months I will update my iPhone album(s) at photoweitz.com.

For class, I hope to be as beneficial for those who attend as my co-teacher, the talented Energizer Bunny Carol Schiraldi, at House of Carol. To find out more about her ongoing photography antics and artworks go to this photostream link on flickr.

Until then, keep your phone/ipad camera ready for opportunities.   Aren’t we the lucky ones when we get to be the passenger in a car? I love “mobile imagery” at every bend in the road.

east austin studio tour

Haven’t had time to post, as I was preparing for the East Austin Studio Tour.

What a groovin’ time! I must thank Bolm Studios (who just changed their name to Big Medium) for the time and effort they put forth for our local art community. This year the addition of the Yellow Bikes was awesome, way to go for a “green” turnout.  Also enjoyed the music happening at the building – and where was my camera when “Rubber Robot” was playing???  I missed a great opportunity as the band members all wore rubber horse head masks and the pony tails were flying to the beat of the band.
