Walking towards their future

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.


  1. Forrest and Linda, my condolences to you two.

  2. I'm glad showed his picture earlier here: http://austintexasdailyphoto.blogspot.com/2010/12/aging.html

    with condolences,


  3. Forrest, So very sorry to learn of your Dad's passing. You are fortunate to have so much to remember him by. Hope your Mom finds a way to adapt to live out the rest of her life peacefully.
