These Boots are Made for...


These were on display at this year's Armadillo Christmas Bazaar.

Iron Works


Iron Works Barbeque used to house an actual Iron Works. Can you tell from this door?

Wearing Your Heart on Your Car


I'm thinking a pretty typical old Austinite.

Shoe Blowout


Abandoned after the blowout?

Acrobatic Cat


This cat was rolling around on the warm sidewalk and I caught him in a most awkward pose. It was one of those cool, windy days when it was warm in the sun.

Old Sculpture, New Home


This sculpture is just off the Shoal Creek Trail near 29th and Lamar. It is a sculpture by David Deming that used to be on the grounds on Laguna Gloria. The Contemporary (which operates Laguna Gloria now) is placing some of their collection out in the community. When it was at Laguna Gloria, it was hidden from view

Good Luck!


We attended a New Year's Day party where good luck foods were served. Our Southern U.S. black-eyed peas and cornbread, collard greens (green for money) and sardines. Some consider them a good luck food. These were cleaned and grilled whole outside on a chilly day. They were delicious!

Somewhere Over the Rainbow


This garage apartment in Clarksville has an upbeat attitude.

What a skyline!


I like this panoramic shot I took the other day of Linda taking a panoramic shot. We are at the foot of Doug Sahm Hill on the south shore of the lake. That skyline is really something. Hard to believe that we live in the middle of it.

Craning my neck.


Yes, one more tall building. This one is the Independent, which will be the tallest residential-only building west of the Mississippi when it is done. What happened to our little town?

Chris and Christine Christmas


Our friends Chris and Christine were singing up a storm at the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar last month. They drew a huge crowd and we wound up standing through the concert.

Chipping away at art


Here are a couple of art assemblages made from computer chips and some paint. Very original. We saw these at the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar the other day.

Bike bat


Bats are a big deal in Austin -- even for bike racks. Here you see one outside the Palmer Events Center.

What's he reading, anyway?


A friend bought this remarkable sculpture in Mexico. We are glad that he showed it to us the other night.

Nice dish for lunch!


Love this new take on Nicoise Salad at June's All Day, one of our favorite eateries. It has creme fraiche on the bottom of the plate.

R.I.P. Seth


A sad time for us a couple of weeks ago. The son of one of our best friends had a heart attack and died. I had known him since he was about three years old. Hard to believe that it happened.

Tough piece!


We were working this puzzle the other day and this piece was telling us things were going to be more difficult than we thought. It took a long time to find it.

Photo of the Year


We had some worthy alternatives for Daily Photo of the Year, but after some thought, we chose this one. This installation by famed artist Ai Weiwei is called “Forever Bicycles.” Situated near the Four Seasons Hotel, just off the Hike and Bike Trail on the north bank of Lady Bird Lake, it provides an arresting visual flare of beauty. (Note from Forrest -- I am glad that I caught my partner in life at just the right moment to make a good composition.) This Photo of the Year serves as a reminder to look for moments of inspiration each day. Happy New Year to all our fellow bloggers and our readers worldwide!

Nice music-- feliz navidad!


This excellent signer was performing some terrific Latin songs at a private party the other night. These people really know how to put on a fine event.

Holiday Buffet -- What a Treat!


We always love this buffet at the Headliners Club that takes place just before Christmas. It's a chance to catch up with a lot of friends and make some new ones. The food is always great, too. Unlimited tamales and shrimp. What is not to like?

Boot off!


Someone decided that one boot was enough to get them home, I suppose.

Nice design


I love the open air design of the new library -- it is so refreshing to wander through it and take a leisurely look at books that I have not read before.

Two brave men, one big building


These guys are making a terrifying task look easy. I got a photo of them working on the building across the street on a recent afternoon.

Ergonomically correct chairs


These chairs at the new Austin Public Library are really comfortable. I love sitting in one of them and taking time to relax and read a book.

A Time for Reflection


Well, the big day has arrived. Not so much for us. We took this in one of the hotels, reflecting ourselves in a large ornament. We used the picture for our Christmas card with the tagline "A Time for Reflection." And, so it is.
