Ergo, here is my life the past three weeks brought to you not my a DSLR, not by a point and shoot, not even by an artsy iphone instagram, but by my ENV 2 and all both of its megapixels. (like I'm going to complain that my PHONE can take PICTURES. that will always be awesome.)
|The Austin skyline at sunset from my hotel room. It's purrrty.|
|The Texas Capital. Hotter outside than you can really gather from watching Real World Austin. Almost died walking here.|
|Texas dome. If a state could copyright a shape, Texas would copyright stars.|
|Best Door Hinges in the world, ever. I can't compete.|
|the Texas House of Reps. When they say that everything's bigger in Texas, they mean, our house is bigger than America's House. And they would be right. Also, their chairs are nicer.|
|You may or may not know that Austin is also known as BAT CITY. Those brown swirly things? Bats. about 100 of the 1.3 Million bats that live under the Austin bridge and leave at dusk every night to go a huntin' like good little Texans.|
|See the black specks on the right over the horizon? Bats. I KNOW.|
|Coworkers and I took a little detour one night fer some outlying rural texas BBQ. I ate the rib of a cow, and it was amazing. Then we went sightseeing, to walk off all of the eating.|
|A purrty building in Lockhart, our BBQ town. I loved this town, if you can't tell.|
|Back to Austin. This is the Driskill Hotel. Real fancy, in a country and western sort of way.|
|This was in the Ladies Bathroom in the Driskill. I didn't go in there to take this picture, but it was a delightful bonus.|
|The stained glass dome in the Driskill, which I thought was just lovely. Dan, can we put one up in the "Stoker house"?|
And here are two other nice things my camera saw recently. One is from when Aimee and the kids came to visit, and Dan and Sylvie had a nice peaceful bonding moment by the duck pond at Pioneer Park, while Aimee ventured alone into the land of chaos which was trying to wrastle two scruffy and wonderful boys into their car seats.
I'm glad you can't tell that's what's going on behind this pastoral scene of utter cuteness. Though I wish I had a picture of that too.
This is our cat, Jeoffrey c.o.u.g.h. Cannonball. He is a kitten, and he is a handful, and he makes terrible odors, and I love him desperately.
