Join the South Central Waterfront photo safari
Friday, October 16, 2015 by Nora Ankrum
The next event in the ongoing effort to create a “People’s Field Guide” to the South Central Waterfront will be a “photo safari” that promises coffee, prizes and the “thrill of the hunt,” according to an announcement from the city. The family-friendly event is part of the South Central Waterfront initiative, an effort to create a 20-year guiding framework for development of a 97-acre stretch of land downtown, on the south shore of Lady Bird Lake. Previous outings in the series, which is co-hosted by the city and Austin’s Atlas, have included a “walkshop” in search of “natural and man-made objects” and two “Walk and Draws.” This week’s mini-adventure will be a scavenger hunt along the waterfront, with participants taking pictures and creating “urban still lifes, spontaneous portraits, and cityscapes” that will all become part of the field guide. It will take place Sunday, Oct. 18 at 10 a.m., starting under the south side of the First Street Bridge. Bring cameras, sunscreen and comfortable shoes. More information is available here.
