Barton Springs is a natural swimming hole that is fed by underground springs which keep it’s waters at a year-round temperature of about 68-degrees Fahrenheit.
If you are in Texas during the summer months, you may notice a certain trend in the weather; it is very hot every day and every night. How do we manage? Around Austin we swim, a lot. Barton Springs is an especially attractive way to cool off because it is consistently cold, natural, chemical free, and very close to downtown. If you are in central Texas, you should take a dip in what some call the ‘magical healing waters’ of the Barton Springs Pool.
You can’t survive summer in Austin without Barton Springs Pool. It’s not just a large public pool in a beautiful part of the city, its also naturally fed by cold underground springs which stay near 62 degrees Fahrenheit (20 degrees Celsius) year-round. This is amazing when you’re three weeks into a Texas heat wave.
The shock you get when you hit that cold water, I recommend using the spring-board, is nothing less than an exhilarating rush of soul refreshment. Suddenly the once blaring sun isn’t so bad and even the world seems slightly less stressful. You can hang out in the water, or grab a spot on the lawn and do as the locals do; read, converse, sunbathe, practice your Yoga or just people watch until you start sweating again and need another dip. After a couple of these cycles, you suddenly got your reading and exercise done while possibly making some new friends.

I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
