Alphabe Thursday - Rainbow Session - Indigo Blue


Time for Rainbow Summer School again. Mrs. Matlock will be proud - I was on time this week! It's not too late to register for class. Come visit everyone at Jenny Matlock - Off On My Tangent. This is a really fun group!

This week our color is Indigo Blue. Last week I shared pictures of our beautiful blue skies here in Texas. This week I'll prove that our Indigo evening skies are just as wondrous. So join me on a little tour of a typical Texas weekend in the fall.

Start the weekend off right with a small town high school football game. And in Texas, the half time show and the band are almost as important as the game! This was actually taken at a Marching competition. At a real game, there would not be an empty seat in the stadium. We used to joke that if you wanted to get away with something, best do it on Friday night. Because EVERYONE is at the game! And I know that the sky is not yet Indigo in this shot. But the drum major's uniform is! (Yes, that's our Cait)


If you're lucky enough to have connections (like a former player on the 69 National Champion Longhorns), you might score tickets to a Longhorn game for your Saturday entertainment.

If football's not your thing (I don't think you should admit that if you live in Texas), you could make a night visit to the State Capitol.


Just a note. If you lay on the floor to get a really neat shot of the inside of the dome, the DPS officers guarding the Capitol are likely to smile, shake their head, and walk the other way. I guess they figured we were a bit nuts, but basically harmless!


On your way home, stop and take a spooky shot of Grace Heritage Church - just off the square here in Georgetown. PJ, this shot is just for you!


Hope you enjoyed your tour of a Texas fall weekend.

Beautiful photos, Kat...especially the church! I have been admiring it on yuor sidebar...amazing! I scrolled down to get caught up...behind as usual...and read your story continuation...ooooooh! Now, you need to think about becoming a writer of southern literature! No kidding! Because you know that is just the kind of thing that would have been possible in the south a while back! Have a great week and try to get in a little "me" time for yourself!...hugs...Debbie

OMG!!! that church shot is just amazing ... wow!!! stunning photos!

Your photos are beautiful. I have to admit it...we no longer go to high school football games on Friday night, but we did at one time. Those years are in our past. I think Texas has a very pretty capital building. We went many years ago and it's quite impressive.

Tina said...

love the stunning scenery you included in your sky shots. the last one is amazing

Cheryl said...

Great shots, Kat. I do love that lost one a ton. The capitol from outside and upside-down are pretty damn cool too.

Viki said...

I love the moon in the background of the Church. Cool!!

Lori E said...

Oh my goodness that shot of the church with the moon is spooky but enthralling. Wow.

"Cottage By The Sea" said...

Love the pics. Wow, lying on the floor to get a picture of the dome is really going that extra mile for a shot - and well worth it! You must be so proud when Cait stands up there and directs! I'd rather watch the major than the band. So dramatic - I love it!

Jenny said...

What a perfect post for Rainbow Summer Schools journey through Indigo.

Loved the sky, and the dome, and your lovely Cait silhouetted against the sky.

This was a fantastic trip to Texas.

And a fantastic stop!

Thanks for the laugh visualizing you laying on the floor!

A+

DesignTies said...

Love your Texan indigo blue night skies. And Cait's uniform too, of course :-)

The shot of the dome is really cool. I find that it changes from looking concave to convex for me. Do I have weird eyes or does anyone else see it?!

I have to remember to participate in Alphabe-Thursday one of these weeks!!

Gorgeous pics, but the last one with the church and moon - WOW! Love it! Linda

Shellbelle said...

Love all the pics, but the painting you did on the church is stunning!

La Dolfina said...

I loved it. I was born in Texas, a navy brat so it's dear to my heart even though I haven't a clue what it's like! Thanks for the lovely tour.
