UT Austin

The Eyes of Texas

The Eyes of Texas

Every August, Texas Longhorn fans gear up for their season: football season. A few years ago I got a call from a company that wanted me to shoot photos for the book, The Ultimate Tailgater's Guide to the Big 12. I'm a native Austinite, and to be completely honest I was in the dark about what was going on at the UT campus during every home game. I had no idea how devoted these fans are. Suffice it to say, my eyes were opened when I spent a day among them during the UT/Ohio State game. It's not an event; it's a way of life. If you happen to be in town during a home football game, it's worth a trip to tailgater's paradise. A good place to start is right in front of the Bob Bullock History Museum.
