Austin: 10 Photo Ops Fit for a Hipster


If you’re gonna drive all the way up to Austin, you sure as hell better document it properly. Whether it’s the classic Texas State Capitol shot or a freshly painted wall, we’ve got the best spots to strike a pose for an Insta-worthy shot. Proof: Look at all these fab grams.

1. Hope Outdoor Gallery

Pro tip: Wear hiking shoes and climb to the very top. Nominate a photographer to stay at the bottom. Also find your favorite “art” and pose there too! My spot: “Donald Trump can suck my ass”.

2. Capital

It’s a little cliche, but an early morning shot at the capitol building promises no photo bombers. Bonus: Go inside! The floor of the atrium is gorgeous. Out back, is also some v pretty roses. All the photos!

3. “I love you so much”

Hey @call_me_saga have I told you this lately? Cause it's true

Another ATX classic. I promise you, every pose you can think of has been done. BUT, take that as a challenge, my friends!

4. “Hi how are you”

Doing alright, thanks for asking. ✌🏻️

I’m good, thanks. This little alien (?) frog (?!) thing is so very polite. The least you can do is take a picture with him!

5. Waterloo Record Store

Hipsters, unite! This store is basically a museum. Quite an experience, for vinyl lovers or non.

6. Barton Springs

If you can’t stomach the ICE COLD water plunge, you can take a picture from the above-water warmth. Or, you know, do both.

7. Zilker Park

Just outside Barton is the park where the magic music fests happen. Cartwheel, handstand, or feetstand in front of the gorgeous DT skyline.

8. TM wall – #TMnewAustin

This mural was painted strictly for the March 2016 cover of Texas Monthly, but that doesn’t mean it can’t also be the cover of your trendy af Facebook album.

9. UT tower

Do this one for history. Even if you’re not one of the Texas Exes, you can appreciate this iconic structure.

10. Mount Bonnell

Looking ahead to 30 #austin #chateaudetiddles #dirtythirty 🎉🙌🏽

This spot is your view from the top! Again, bring your hiking boots/non ballet flats.
