How bout them Horns?


You have to love the sense of humor here. This is at the fire station near the U of Texas campus.

Scale

The current (until November 6) show at Women and Their Work is "Emily Fleisher's Astro-Turf and it plays with scale and space (as in this work where a miniature landscape spills from a wheelbarrow constructed from wood.

Meet the meat!


The meat selection at Dai Due's butcher shop is amazing. I am glad that they opened this restaurant/retail store.

Listening

During the Blanton Museum SoundSpace event people move around at will. On the staircase at one point these listeners seemed to be choreographing their movements while someone passed them on the stairs to take up a different position.

Growing up On Lady Bird Lake

I'm thinking this is a Black-crowned Night Heron juvenile. What do you think? Spotted on Lady Bird Lake, of course.

Me and My Shadow

This egret appears to be walking on water but really he's wading in the shallows near the Lady Bird Lake boardwalk.

Slow and steady


These turtles were sunning and relaxing on a piece of wood in Lady Bird Lake the other day.

The main event


This extremely avant musical piece was performed over an hour by players who had their parts governed by digital clocks posted where they could see them. It was mesmerizing.

Mutual music


These musicians had a strange hookup to play each others' horns.

Bass level music


Another shot from SoundSpace. This musician was playing some very modern pieces.

Art and music -- an unbeatable combination.


I shot this photo at SoundSpace in the Blanton Museum on a recent Sunday. Her flute really resonated in that space.

Stuff left behind


A boot and a cup of coffee. Well, you take what you can, I guess.

RIP Geraldine


Geraldine, the Rainey Street guinea fowl, got run over recently. The Royal Blue Grocery in the area put her silhouette in their window. Here's her facebook page.

Getting to the core of the matter

Lost little bird


This sweet little parakeet was perched below a fence rail on Lavaca Street between 8th and 9th one recent afternoon. We couldn't begin to get it to come to us. It was obviously lost and I'll bet its owner is worried sick.

OK, kids-- line up now!


Forrest recently attended his 50th high school reunion. Here is the crew assembling for the group photo.

The latest panoramic shot


I thought I would update our loyal followers with a view from the south side of our building. Left to right, it's the Trammell Crow development, the new library and the Seaholm.

The old and the new


I caught this view of the new skyline looming over the old buildings on East Sixth the other day.

Modern times!


Here is a striking mew mural just off East Sixth Street. We spotted it on a recent walk.

Political Graffiti?

I am feeling a message here in this intricate graffiti.

Big Melt

Good Pop is a local brand of icy treats. This sculpture of a melting gigantic treat was near the Congress Avenue bridge the other day. FFP posed for scale. Apparently it is promoting an upcoming art show.

Movement


I was walking across the Great Lawn at Zilker Park and caught this shot with my iPhone the other day. A woman pushing her bike, a man walking with his little dog -- the scene was dreamlike when I looked at the photo. When I got home, I realized that this would be a nice choice for the Movement theme. Click here to see the many interpretations of this theme from around the world.
