Goodbye 2018 Photo


 
Hours before the New Year, I shot this from the Headliners Club at Sixth and Lavaca in the Chase Building. That's our building (The 360) in the middle with the spire and The Independent on the right. (It's the tallest building in Austin at the moment. It is a luxury condo building and is nearing completion now.)

I'll Have Olives with That

The Cedar Bar and Restaurant on Brazos has some giant olives on top to the building. They are supposedly famous for Mexican Martini. I wouldn't know because I only drink margaritas at a venerable Austin restaurant called Fonda San Miguel and I wouldn't go with the Martini version with olives anyway! This restaurant had one or two other locations. I think all or part of the building might have been physically moved with it.

Mural Colors

Great use of this space on a parking garage wall. This is on Second and Brazos near the JW Marriott.

One more sunrise.


This one has a softer feel than the one I posted yesterday. Beauty like this makes it easy to get out of bed in the morning.

Natural beauty


Here is a sunrise that I captured from our balcony on a recent morning. I love the oranges and blues.

Grackle welcome


The people who arrived at their cars after work on a recent evening were greeted with this avian display. Grackles are not the nicest birds.

More scooter obnoxiousness


A friend took this shot of a batch of scooters jamming up the one van-accessible handicapped parking spot at Pease Park. Not acceptable.
