The latest and greatest on CNN iReport, brought to you by Team iReport.
Shiny food trucks. A spontaneous dance party. Streets filled with revelers. A lone bike on a rainy sidewalk.
These were just some of the sights that iReporters captured last week during South by Southwest in Austin, Texas. The film, interactive and music conference – known as SXSW – came to a close yesterday.
During the conference, we showcased iReporters’ best SXSW photos in a pop-up gallery at the Austin Convention Center. The display changed daily with the latest photos we received. Visitors to the gallery also had the opportunity to upload their favorite Austin photo to iReport and print it as a postcard.
Photographer Chris Suspect of Hyattsville, Maryland, had a starring role in Monday’s gallery, with his artful photo of a woman standing at a crosswalk. He also earned a spot in Thursday’s selection of photos with a snapshot from an impromptu photo shoot.
Mary Ling of Shanghai, China, happened upon an Angry Birds flash mob and snapped this colorful photo, which we showcased in our gallery on Wednesday.
And Jeremiah Mayhew of Sacramento, California, also appeared twice in the gallery – with his insider view of Google’s Android House, part of the popular "Google Village" erected for South by Southwest Interactive, and photo of a man and his dog roaming the streets at night.
Mayhew had never been to the conference before, and hoped to capture that with his photography. “The images were taken in the mind state that I am creating a memory,” he explained. “I keep doubting that this is all happening. My eyes have truly been opened throughout this SXSW experience and my heart is more inspired than ever.”
Thank you to all of the photographers who shared their fantastic SXSW photos with iReport. You can explore them all here.
