When they say wood-fired . . .

they mean it! This firewood was stacked outside of Odd Duck, one of Austin's favorite restaurants last night, ready for use. And the food we had was amazingly good.

Gear tableau

A group of guys were exercising in the park a few Saturdays ago. This batch of stuff they left out for rehydration made a nice composition.

Lost and found! Well, still lost!

This cute little bear was perched out on a strut under the MoPac Bridge one Saturday when I walked past. Two days later it was on the lost and found pillar near the north end of the path. I wonder what someone went through to retrieve it!

Mount Austin

We were busy dining out and shopping for books at the end of the day on August 21, but Jackie and her husband were alert to the Austin skies and saw this cloud bank doing an imitation of a snow-capped moutain. She says:
[my husband] alerted me that we could see Mt Kilamanjaro from our kitchen window, so I snapped this shot. Soon after, the cloud bank drifted west and "melted."
Today is the first of the month and therefore theme day at City Daily Photo. The theme is curiosities. We were thinking of a picture of odd junk at our favorite junk and antique shop, but we saw this and thought it would be perfect for the theme.

East side panorama

Here's a panoramic shot I took of the east side of downtown Austin from the pool deck of the new Westin Hotel. If you had shown me this photo when I was a kid, there is no way I would have said that this is really Austin.

Spanning the creek

I'll avoid the urge to make any comments about golden arches. Progress is being made on the new bridge over Shoal Creek which lets Second Street go west through to the Seaholm Project.
