That would scare me!

Someone had a fun time making this costumed scarecrow in their front yard.

My childhood church

I spent a lot of time in my younger days in this church, located at 42nd and Avenue D in Hyde Park. The congregation moved to a larger facility on East 45th Street, when I was in high school, over 50 years ago. This structure seems to be home to a couple of congregations now.

Total stupidity

A roundabout in downtown with a tall bush in the middle. A driver on one side cannot see someone on the other side because of it. Dumb.

Interesting story

We saw this nice story outside a house in the central Austin neighborhood Judge's Hill a few days ago.

They're baaaack!

Scooters are starting to be used again and their riders just throw them down, blocking sidewalks.

Moving the church

This quaint west Austin church is being shifted on its site to make way for condos. I think it was called the First English Lutheran Church.

Roll out the buns

These tasty cinnamon rolls are from our friends at Fixe Southern House.
We get them to go. So delicious.

Bridge over private waters

This home in Tarrytown has a sweet little bridge over a stream to reach their front door.

Modern Infill

In a neighborhood of more traditional homes, modern infills often fill lots where the original home was torn down.

Creative Mail

We walked in a neighborhood called Galindo the other day and they seemed to have a penchant for interesting mailboxes.

These keep popping up...with the owner's fill in the blank reason. Haven't seen any for the red side.

Song signs of Hope

These signs with song lines keep cropping up in neighborhoods, offering hope or amusement. And that door and house number? Love it.

Nice Door

I'm always intrigued by interesting doors both in design and color. This neighborhood might be called Westfield or West Enfield or Tarrytown.

When the Artichokes Bloom

Took this in Travis Heights. I was over seven decades old before I realized that artichokes would bloom like this.

Nice Tableau

Someone in the Arroyo Seco neighborhood set this up for me to photgraph.

Flamingo Skeletons

Saw these in Hemphill Park, I believe. They are read for Halloween, I suppose.

Shot this picture in a little neighborhood around Arroyo Seco.

Our Park

This is the view of the nearest park to us from our balcony. Before the isolation we have been undergoing we walked to and through this park all the time. It has been refurbished and is quite nice with paths, sculpture and heritage live oak trees. However, lately, we only see it from our place because there tend to be people there and at the nearby bus stop in unpredictable quantities.  The street nearby is closed on Saturdays to allow a Farmer's Market. We haven't been going there either. Maybe soon as we see how the infection affects our city. Many things are opening up.

Today is theme day for City Daily Photo. Click here to see what other blogs from around the world did to show a park in their city.
