Old school food

This redfish with mango salsa was on my plate at El Rancho on a recent Sunday night. El Rancho is an Austin old-timer.

Heaven on earth

This fried chicken sandwich on a sunchoke bun is one of my favorite dishes. Available at Fixe. (The fries aren't bad, either.)

Getting on up there!

The office building and the hotel to the south of our condo tower are "coming out of the ground." Here is a new shot of the site.

Open to Interpretation

This poster paper graffiti was posted near our house. A Second (?) Coming of ???? The stencil appears to have been applied to a map, probably of Austin.

Where's my Sole?

Jackie found this abandoned sole along the walk of the Austin Women's March.

Abandoned with the Bird

Jackie found this one day on the 3rd Street Pedestrian Bridge. As with all our abandoned stuff photos, she didn't move or tamper with it 'in situ.' That's the new 2nd Street (auto and pedestrian) bridge in the background. And the new trail leading to and under it. Neither has opened as we await completion of the new library and other buildings.

This delectable dish was served to Linda at Cipollina on a recent Saturday, complete with its own iron skillet.

A sweeping view

We attended a concert at the Long Center on a recent afternoon and I took this photo from the donor's lounge. My city didn't look like this when I was growing up!

June at June's All Day!

The owner at June's came over to say hello to us on a recent outing. We love this place on South Congress.

Caldo -- so good!

Soup like grandma used to make. Love this dish at June's All Day.

Me and my shadow

Sometimes it's good to make sure that you are still real. Especially at my age.

Bombay? This way!

I love the color scheme on this food truck on S. First. I'll bet the food is good as well.

Camo covering

This pole is disguised in case it needs to take cover or masquerade as a hipster.

Chairs at Shady Grove

This sitting area looks pleasant and colorful near the Shady Grove on Barton Springs.

Sunrise (with Clouds)

We never get tired of sunrise here at the 360. On the left our building reflects the sunrise back at those east of us as seen in another building's reflection.

Get a video of Willie

The Convention and Visitors Bureau sponsored a party for a big convention planners trade association and Willie Nelson performed. I like the composition of these phone and camera users capturing the moment (while I captured them).

January Day

This guy took advantage of spring-like weather in January to lounge in Zilker Park and read a book.

House Finch at Sunrise

Shot from my easy chair through a dirty window. These guys usually get stirred up and show up when the weather is in flux. Except for a wind shift this day not much was happening with the weather.

Detail from Walk

When I walk, I like to look at the details of things like this feather against the crushed rock of the Hike and Bike Trail.

More Mannequin Carnage

Couldn't resist another mannequin one from Jackie. I like the lively stride from the poster versus the downed mannequins.

Out of Business

Jackie shot this of the stripped interior of Luke's Locker downtown. The company has gone into bankruptcy.

New Art

This monumental art piece appeared outside City Hall the other day. Jackie captured it with our friend Steve pondering its intricacies.

Sweet dog waiting for an elevator

This cute little dog and his master were waiting with us in the lobby the other day.

Poor little outhouse!

We had heavy winds the other day and this porta-potty from the construction site across the street blew off of its moorings.

Loving life

Here is our Theme Day photo for Loving Life. This lady doesn't let her physical challenges get her down -- she was smiling from ear to ear during the Women's March on January 21st. She had even dyed her hair pink. See other City Daily Photo members' interpretations of the theme here.
