Art Bra


I took this photo with my iPhone at the Art Bra fundraiser for Breast Cancer Resource Center last Saturday. That is a stage full of brave women. Holley Kitchen, whose homemade video has gotten 45,000,000 views worldwide since she posted it on Facebook last Thursday, is standing towards the left rear of this shot.

Roots on top


We took a walk through the Great Lawn of Zilker Park and came upon the remains of one of the fine old trees at "Rock Island." We were out of town when the storm hit that toppled this tree. Since the sawed-off part of the stump was on the bottom and the roots were on top, we thought that this shot would be worthy of "Upside Down" -- the theme for today.

Where Are We?

We've been away from Austin on auto-post for a bit but will get back to real time soon. This picture was taken earlier in June and shows us reflected in a shop window on one of our walks.

Just another migas morning


We just returned from a trip to France and thought that a nice batch of migas with a side of guacamole would be a good start to the day. We were catching up on our reading as well and especially liked the good news in this front page story.

Iconic Texan

Barbar Jordan's statue on the UT campus. Her statue is also at the airport. She was a legendary Texas Democrat. She was the first African-American elected to the Texas Senate after reconstruction. And the first woman elected to the United States Congress from Texas I believe.

Mystery Mural

Located on a business that is run out of a house and garage apartment converted to commercial use on Nueces. Not sure whose portrait this is.
