Home sweet home

Here's a shot of our home that shows the construction offices for the Seaholm set up on our west side.

Serious Saturday blues

This singer and his band were wailing outside the Whole Foods on a recent morning.

Cranes, cranes, and more cranes!

We'll always call this building under construction "The Rent-All Building" because of the little business that was was there and got shoved aside for it.

A Bit of Shade

These 'trees' are meant to add a little shade to the boardwalk...or maybe just a bit of flair. Nice shot from Jackie.

Skyline from the Boardwalk

This skyline shot is from the new boardwalk. It's really changed in the last few years.

Perfect Spot for Spectators

Lots of people sailed right up to see the Blue Lapis Light performance. And, yes, the dancers arrived by boat to their positions as well.

Hanging on the Highway

This Blue Lapis Light Dancer performs on a column supporting IH35. This was part of the boardwalk grand opening celebration. You can see the Monarch, 360, AMLI on Second, the W and the Ashton in the background.

Yellow-Crowned Night Heron

Jackie shot this while we were on our boardwalk inauguration adventure a few weekends ago. I believe it to be a yellow-crowned night heron. Lovely to have all the flora and fauna we do around Lady Bird Lake.

Lady Bird Lake Has a New Boardwalk

My friend Jackie shot this one when we walked over to the east to the ribbon cutting on June 7th. Our home, the 360, is on the far right. As you can see this new path around the lake extends for a long distance over the water.

Gimme a break!

We took a break from posting on Austin Daily Photo the other night to have drinks and dinner with friends. I took this photo of Linda's Manhattan.

Towering cranes

Another view of Austin's crane invasion. It's fun for us to watch the projects going up around our home. One of these cranes is for the new library's construction.

We are often confused about popular culture. The mural outside this business which seemed to offer sports clothes baffled us.

A place on South First that used to be a tattoo parlor (I think) is being refitted. The side has a mural showing a butterfly emerging. Don't know what the new business will be.

Texas Persimmon

The bark of this Texas Persimmon in Pease Park has a wonderful texture.

Mixed Messages

This graffiti on a construction wall at South First and Riverside seems to have had its message changed. I like the doctored version better but they might have added the number for a suicide hot line.

Get Your Vapor Here...It's Sexy

Those vapor shops are popping up everywhere. This one had a motorized mannequin waving a sign.

Austin Icon

This poster is at one of our favorite eateries, Snack Bar on South Congress, combines the iconic 360 Pennybacker Bridge and a couple of iconic movie monsters.

Another Austin mural

This colorful mural has sprung up down the street from the one that has been receiving so much press.

Boating at sunset

This group of party-goers was having a great time the other day on Lady Bird Lake.

Going up!

This apartment building near us is going up in record time. We need more units like this since over 100 people arrive in Austin every day.

Eminent domain

This peacock was surveying his domain the other day. Note Linda's hand at the bottom. I got mine posted first!

Fantasyland on Second Street

These two ladies were part of the Toy Joy store reopening on a recent Saturday.

Some more graffiti

Leave it to a place like Austin to provide a spot for these artists to do their thing.

Living room

This little trailer is just right for an extra room in this hidden neighborhood.

Zesty post-partum aerobics!

This group of carriage-pushing mothers got together at our big downtown park to exercise together. They were having a great time of it. You can see other City Daily Photo theme day interpretations here.
