Photos from Austin

As promised, photos from the weekend. First, what may possibly be my favourite photo ever taken of Torsten:

I only this weekend figured out how to use my camera in macro mode, so please excuse the extreme close-ups of food.

Torsten's dessert:

The wedding program:

Matt smiling at his bride as she walks up the aisle toward him:

All the stoplights in Austin are sideways:

Me in the crosswalk:

The Texas state Capitol from the outside:

And from the inside:

A cannon on the grounds outside the Capitol:

You can see the full set here. But lastly, since I figured out the macro mode, I figured as a bonus I'd finally show you all a picture of my ring:


  1. Your ring is goregous! And I'm antsy to get back to Austin soon. xoxo.

  2. Your pictures were GREAT! What kind of camera do you have?

    Also, your ring is gorgeous.

  3. Macro mode... I have one of those on my camera, and it's never occurred to me that I should use it. This sounds lame, but I'm honestly excited you reminded me of this. :-)

    Glad you had a good trip!

  4. Pretty ring! Very, very pretty!

    Also, I am in love with macro buttons. I use mine all the time, for no real reason other than that maybe I like that the symbol is a little flower.

    Pretty ring!

  5. Great photos! I love the ones you took with the macro, isn't it fun?!

    What kind of camera are you using?

    Your ring is really pretty!

  6. OOOOH RING! pretty!! those are fantastic pictures. i love me a good wedding. :-)

  7. Pretty ring! And I LOVE close ups of food! Especially desserts!

  8. Stephanie and Sara--I have a Sony DSC-H5, which is a GREAT camera. Torsten gave it to me last Christmas and it is the best camera you can get without moving up to a DSLR. It has a 12x zoom (which in newer models has been upgraded to a 15x zoom) and the macro mode works great now that I've figured it out. The problem I was having before was that I was trying to use the zoom and the macro mode at the same time, and it turns out that that doesn't work. You have to not use the zoom and instead get the camera really close to the subject to get the macro mode to work.

  9. The ring is gorgeous! (Also, the dessert.)


  10. All of those pictures were fantastic!

  11. What a pretty ring! You have a great eye for fun shots!

  12. I love your polka dot top! And your ring!

  13. Great photos. I want your camera. Funny about the stoplights.
