Austonian and Alleyway

Austonian and Alleyway - Austin, Texas

Austonian and Alleyway – Austin, Texas

In addition to capturing buildings under construction, as part of my A Changing Austin project, I’m also documenting the current state of downtown. You never know when this view will change in the future.

The Austonian, a high-end condominium, is the second tallest building in Austin. I often show this tower on the blog since I like its slender profile, especially looking along the north-south axis.

The alleyway creates a leading line that points directly to the subject building. This adds the drama and items of interest in the foreground, mid-ground, and background. Little photographic tricks to make downtown buildings more compelling.

    1. It does have a gritty older-looking view of Austin, which is actually hard to find. Unlike Philadelphia, which is dripping with history, most of Austin is very new.

      It’s been a while since I’ve been in Philly. It would be fund to shoot the architecture there.
