The Octogenarians of Barton Springs. A series of portraits for Tribeza Magazine in Austin, TX. â€œGetting down here is a new act of will every day, but I always know Iâ€™ll be glad I did. To me, the water is magic. I come even when itâ€™s cold, when there may only be about four people in the pool. Once in the late nineties I was the only person in the pool when a Statesman photographer took a picture on a 29-degree day. The cutline read: â€œâ€¦ Elsewhere in Austin folks went sledding.â€ ðŸ“¸ Photographer note on the top image: I love the juxtaposition of the main talent in the foreground and the young bikini clad talent in the distant background. Itâ€™s such a story to me. Weâ€™re all young and hopefully we all grow oldâ€¦ as gracefully as these octogenarians.
