This is an Austin Daily Photo-- but it was shot a few years ago--72 to be exact. These folks are my parents, walking down Congress Avenue, Austin's main street. My dad was 28 and mother was 19. They had been married for just a few weeks. Back then, there were sidewalk photographers who would snap candid shots and then persuade people to buy a print. I'm glad that happened or I never would have seen them like this, all dressed up, young, and smiling.
Daddy died in Seton Hospital this morning at 12:42. He lived to be 100 years old. He'll be missed.
