With occasional reflection on the perpetual absurdity/intrigue of life and society in general.

Photo Journal of Austin Series, Part 4: Full Moon Over Austin
The following images were taken from the Hill at Butler Park, next to the Palmer Events Center and Dougherty Arts Center, overlooking the River. They were photographed by Meghann Sumner and Tod Gorman (me) on an extraordinary Austin night - filled with sounds of children and family, English and Spanish intertwining musically, under a full moon, and the lights of the fountain glowing and encouraging communal amusement.

This unique park features a fountain that displays programmed morning, afternoon and evening water shows, an observation hill overlooking Lady Bird Lake, a children's garden and a meadow.The park consists of a total of 22 acres.

Butler Park is one of Austin's first "green" parks. The park is irrigated with non-potable water from Lady Bird Lake. All the equipment purchased to maintain the park is "clean" - either powered by propane or electricity.
