If music be the sound of love . . .

We went to a Valentine's Day party at the home owned by two of our good friends and this band was playing. The three musicians you can see here are all Austin all-stars, which is saying a lot in this town.

Yes! They got married!

Two of our friends were the first same sex couple to get married in Texas. We went to their party the other night after they got their license. They have been in a committed relationship for over thirty years and have two fine children.

I usually confine my reflection picture collection to other blogs but I thought I'd share this South Congress portrait of both of us in the window of South Congress Books. They sell vintage books but also music posters, art and artifacts.

Ain't gonna study war no more

This band at a recent Farmers' Market was belting out an old protest song. They were good players.

Say Cheese, Please

On a stroll down South Congress we saw our friend Mike Thompson trying a sandwich at this trailer and ask him to pose. He said he was going nearby for some new ink and his daughter in Oklahoma had turned him on to this place after having seen it online.

Keepin' it Weird, Live Animal Edition

We were walking down South Congress on a pleasant day in early February when we noticed two horses tied up in front of a shop. They were right beside this car which has been there a while promoting the shop I guess. FFP showed the long view yesterday of this same shot. Just shows how a change in POV can make a shot very different.
