Rust and Ruin

While walking down Robert Martinez the other day on the east side, we saw lots of modern infill and well-kept cottages. But an old garage that had seen its heyday long ago yielded this detail of a rusty hinge and weathered boards for today's City Daily Photo theme day: rust and ruin. Click here to see other interpretations of the theme from around the world.

Bird's eye view


Yes, our little town is growing up. I went to a balcony on our floor and took this panoramic shot of the three big construction projects going on south of our home. Left to right, you see the Trammell Crow development, the new library in the middle, and the Seaholm project.

A great book by a local author


Our friend Elizabeth Crook has written a terrific book which has the University of Texas Tower shooting as its touchstone event. She is getting lots of national press and many good reviews about it. I took this shot at a local bookstore which has it prominently displayed.

The informal lost and found under the Mopac bridge was full of keys the other day. And a watch. For once no children's shoes, toys or sippy cups.
