The W Hotel is coming to Austin. They had a big ground breaking event yesterday. Magic Johnson was in attendance. He almost ran into me while I was taking a photo of someone else, but was very nice about it and apologized. Will Wynn had a few things to say. It was interesting being the "official" W photographer. People kept asking which publication I was photographing for and the only thing I could think to say was all of them. :) I admit that on the way to the car someone stopped me and asked if I would take there photo I refused on the grounds that I was "out of film". It's true... sort of.

This amazing event was organized by local Austin event company Kennedy Creative . I'm looking forward to doing lots of work with them in the future! They made my job easy and fun.

That's so weird. I was there, too -- by accident -- I didn't even know that was going on. I was doing a family photo session and we dropped into Austin Java just as the ceremony was taking place. I look over, and I see Magic Johnson!

Today's blog post shows what I was shooting just across the street from you. Cool. Of course, I did manage to snap a couple of shots of Magic, too (thanks to my 70-200).
