Now See Here....

We were at the LBJ Library and Museum last month to see a special Viet Nam War exhibit. No pictures allowed in that, but the regular exhibits provide some opportunities.

Morning Glory

Spring brought lots of rain this year and everything bloomed long and hard including lots of Morning Glories.

Laugh and Learn the Rules

The trail foundation is putting up signs on the trails to keep us laughing but also apprised of the rules. This admonition to keep pets leashed shows a man with, yes, a goat.

Good Pop

Local frozen confection company Good Pop has a spot in front of Whole Foods where you can take a picture with a giant replica of their popular watermelon-flavored ice pop. This is the Whole Foods we walk to for shopping. So does Jackie who snapped this picture. As she says this is a sure sign of summer.

Lone Shoe

As I said to Jackie when she submitted this picture: "The abandoned shoe meme never gets old." She captured this one near the Lamar overpass. We never pose nor move the shoes without owners, letting them speak their volumes as intended.

Electric Drive

Austin has repurposed an old power plant (Seaholm) for restaurants and offices and built up the surrounding area with other businesses, condos, apartments, and stores. As part of this new district, they rechristened part of West Second as 'Electric Drive.' To emphasize this they added charging stations for electric cars. Jackie caught one being powered up.

Historic water fountain

I love this eight hydrant 1928-era water fountain on the Capitol grounds.
