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.
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.
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.
We run a lot of sunsets and often from this vantage point provided by our friend Jackie (across Lady Bird Lake) but this one struck all of us as so much like a painting with the smear of the rain cloud obscuring the sun. We had lots of rain in May and early June. This was taken n June 4th.
