White glove treatment


I loved this piece at our friend Gail Chovan's show at Women and Their Work Gallery.

Great graphics and great jazz


Loved the electronic poster our friends at Parker created for the recurring concert they have on Tuesday. It's great to have this sweet venue just a few blocks away from our condo.

University of Texas Symphony concert


Loved this concert by the UT Symphony on a recent night. They played Bernstein's "Age of Anxiety" which was really moving. An apt choice for this time in our history.

Me, reflecting


Here is a shot I took of myself in the elevator lobby the other day while I was waiting to go downstairs. We have been here almost ten years now. 

Two Basie greats


Terrific concert at Parker the other night. Two of the stalwarts of the Basie Orchestra-- Doug Lawrence on tenor sax and Butch Miles on drums. Yes, indeed. That is Kris Kimura, one of the club's owners, on baritone sax.

Sweet potato hash at Eberly


Yes, this dish was delightful. Sweet potato hash with two over easy eggs. Very tasty for a brunch dish. And we had good conversation with friends to boot.

Flowers at The Four Seasons


We always love walking into the lobby at The Four Seasons and seeing what the artists who do their flowers have created. 

Four hard-working people


We spotted four construction workers in the cold and rain on top of the new Zaza hotel, guiding concrete into forms the other afternoon. That's some serious stamina.

Rather well done!


We heard a stirring speech from Dan Rather at a charity event on a recent evening. It was well-received and many people were sobbing at the end of it.

Salmon on lentils


Loved this perfectly cooked salmon dish at Le Politique the other day. We had lunch with a bunch of Ballet Austin friends.

Vintage car


I love seeing fine old cars like this one that are preserved so well.

Sunrise, sunset


Loved this pretty sunrise the other day. We have great views off of our balcony.



This new sculpture in Pease Park is really a delightful addition to the beauty of that space. They will be allowed to be absorbed back into the ground.

Mussels up to the bar


This new restaurant we found -- Auguste and Marcel -- had four types of mussels. Linda got the classic garlicky ones.

Horns, not a dilemma


These ladies had purchased a pair of horns with a jeweled cow head and were posing with them on South Congress the other afternoon.

Texas burger


This burger at Perry's was really juicy and full-flavored. Not a place we go often. We enjoyed it. 

New bistro in the hood.


We dropped into this bistro on South Congress during the Super Bowl. Nice comfy little spot. 

This took a lot of work!


"Stickwork" is a sculpture made entirely from invasive species of vines found at Pease Park in central Austin. Patrick Dougherty is the artist who made it happen.

Carving art.


Sometimes it's fun to notice the excellent artwork that was done by hand on older local buildings.
Here you see angels over the doors to the First Methodist Church.

Fixing up


I love taking photos in museums. Here you see a man with an unorthodox outfit. He looks like part of the exhibition. 

Sound in the Space


Here you see Jeff Lofton doing a trumpet solo in the Blanton Museum. It was part of the Sound Space exhibition. 



The Theme for today is "play." Here you see a man and his dog doing just that. The dog has just retrieved a tennis ball and his owner is waiting to get it back so he can sling it again. Click here to see what our compatriots around the world posted for this theme.

Art on the fly


This text was being generated at a rapid clip the other day at SoundSpace in the Blanton. 

Concerto for Gamelan and Orchestra


The multi-cultural music was terrific at the annual SoundSpace event at the Blanton on a recent Sunday. 

Independent vision


Here you see the Independent, a new building in the neighborhood. When done, it will be the tallest residential-only building west of the Mississippi. Of oucrse, as you can see, it is informally known as the "Jenga Building."
