    my best friend is here visiting for 3 weeks
    thought id just make a post for all the pics im going to post!

    Day 1 was my nephews 10th bday. This is my sister, him, and his youngest sister at the park. It is also one of 4 photos of my sister where shes not making a "...Boy.... if you dont get that camera out of my FACE....!" type of face at me... :D

    The next 2 are just some leaves and sun, playing with new 75/1.8

    Crazy flavored macarons at Sandra Bullock's restaurant, Walton's Fancy and Staple, downtown Austin, TX. They had all kinds of crazy flavors id never seen before, but these were the most colorful, so they won for a photo spot!

    Woman eating alone by the window. We thought she was waiting for Sandra to walk by...

    _6110033.jpg

    _6110133.jpg



    more flowers on the same bridge... but this time with sparkly bokeh balls from the water! OOOooooh! AAAaaaaah!

    _6110224.jpg




    a cyclist wearing a mellow johnnys(shop associated with lance armstrong) going by some street art of lance talking about the city being "dope"
    also being photobombed by the giraffe! curse you giraffe! *shakes fist*

    _6110255.jpg




    a woman who was full of sassitude on the phone above a running store out on her apt patio

    _6110248.jpg




    decided to head back downtown to see what was going on for ROT Rally. We parked right by this church

    _6120004.jpg




    this bar always looks so fun, if i were a bar person, i might possibly consider going there. but im not, whew!

    _6110279.jpg




    Street art and its ruin

    _6110260.jpg




    cyclist with a shimmery bronze bag...

    _6110259.jpg




    just a guy walking his bike across the street.

    _6120029.jpg




    more cranes, more progress! now how about some traffic control...?

    _6120144.jpg




    bird on a hot tin traffic light. ok, its not tin, but just go with it!

    _6120152.jpg




    caffe medici - i always walk by to see if kirk tuck is there... cause im a protog blogger stalker like dat! lol

    _6120163.jpg




    elvis has left the building... hes out back in a bike cab... and he totally forgot to tuck his pant leg into his sock... duh elvis.... duh....

    _6120036.jpg




    Mano trying out the em5

    _6120227-2.jpg

    _6120041.jpg




    a band performing in the window of a bar on 6th st

    _6120114.jpg




    huge wall art along the side of a building

    _6120117.jpg




    tattoos, kayaks, beards, ducks, and photogrphy... all while waiting on bats under a bridge!

    _6120259.jpg




    this dog kept leaning way down and scooping up mouthfuls of water. none of those shots actually had the whole row team in frame tho, so this one won! :D

    _6120264.jpg




    just a guy walking! but i imagine his bag is full of hipster gear. a flat cap, beard growth formula, and an old film camera that hell wear on his neck as tho it were a watch on his wrist!

    _6120128.jpg




    bald, bearded, bellied, backpack, boatshoes, buildings, and bridge! thats a lot of B's! mansanto must be displeased!

    _6120320.jpg




    tons of runners crossed the bridge while we waited for EVER for bats that NEVER showed up on congress st bridge. the round rock bats are less DIVA and they show up on time...

    oh, yeah
    i forgot i had some i didnt post in a previous thread from that same day, so i had to toss them in, then reorganize some as they were misplaced chronologically, and write up something for each :D

    thanks! it was kind of the bird to look angry at the red light for me, lol
