Austin, a Pictorial

So as I expected, I didn't feel like going out and taking any pictures for this Sunday pictorial nonsense, but I forced myself anyway. To my surprise, I found the night pleasant. The picture snapping fun, and as predicted, I saved my Saturday night from becoming another weekend of me watching Taxi Driver and wishing Cybil Sheppard was young again.

This is downtown Austin as seen from the Palmer Events Center. That dark treeline borders Town Lake (also known as the Colorado River (also know as Lady Bird Johnson Lake)), the river that Congress Avenue Bridge crosses. Further west up the Colorado, Barton Springs pool gushes into a tributary that feeds the river and to my perverted joy, I've seen a handful of topless women there.

This is the downtown Austin as seen through dilated mushroom eyes.

That second picture looks completely normal to me.

Nice pictures. Never been to Austin myself.

Cool pictures! And I've never been to Austin before, either. Do all the buildings in Austin look like that? Or just the ones downtown?

"dilated mushroom eyes"

Well Carlos, that explains a lot.

Love the Sunday Pictorial Nonesense...

I knew you'd understand, Chrissy.

Chris, I'm glad you're possibly seeing the town for the first time then.

Ms. Nanny Goats, it's pretty much just the downtown ones. You can Google the skyline and see way better pics out there.

Thank you, Nancy. I'm having fun with all this nonsense too.

I read a guide book on Austin a looong way back - a great fun read by Kinky Friedman. Well I think it was about Austin. But nothing beats a pictorial of a city through 'shroom eyes!

If Kinky Friedman wrote it, it was about Austin. He has a long history here. But yeah, it can't beat my cheap pics ;)
