It's theme day (the first of the month) at City Daily Photo. Shop Window is the theme. Shop windows and reflections are something I love taking pictures of so it was hard to choose. I chose this one because it reflects the season (that skeleton has on a Santa or Mrs. Claus outfit!) and the skeletons tell a Southwest 'Day of the Dead' story, too. Skeleton angels, huh? Plus I prefer my shop windows reflecting something interesting outside and the tree gives it some depth. This is a shop on South Congress called Tesoros where imports of all kinds are sold, particularly things from Latin America and Mexico. So they never really get over Day of the Dead! Click here for lots of City Daily Photo interpretations of the theme.
I took this a couple of weeks ago. The weather has cooled off a bit since but shirtless running in November is certainly often possible here. The gents were on the Butler Trail on the North Shore of Lady Bird Lake.
There was a lovely light show on Waller Creek that ended last weekend. I believe they are trying to attract attention to the creek and its neglect because there is a gigantic project underway to fund improvements. We didn't see the project lit but our intrepid friend Jackie got over there at night and we will share some of her photos.
This metal tree sculpture outside the Cirrus Logic buidling on West Sixth lights up blue at night. It has a very wintery look. (But we've yet to have much evidence of winter here in Austin.) Thanks to Jackie for this one.
