Day Trip to Austin

We recently visited downtown Austin for a Taco shop and a pumpkin patch. While in Austin we walked a portion of 6th street and visited Whole Foods. I really enjoy photographing Austin’s skyscrapers.

I learned a valuable lesson in the election season of 2008 when I wrote a vile comment in response to what I believed was an offensive political post.

Too Many Emails
