Austin Photowalk

February 16, 2019

I’m down in Austin on 460 business attending the TOA Summit for the Texas Optometric Association. We’ve been working with the TOA for a little over a year now, and they’re such good people. It’s always fun (and kinda expensive!) coming to visit Austin for a few days. Staying right in downtown gives me easy access to get out and take some new photos. These are from my stroll on Friday morning. Shot in Classic Chrome with my 12mm F2.

So, fun story on this on. The other day at home I had Siri “play me something new”. One of the songs I heard was from a 2004 album by Marc Broussard. It was catchy so I added to my library.

Today on my walk-around I thought I’d give them whole album a listen. Lo and behold, as I’m heading back whose name should I see on some signage! Marc Broussard! Too bad he was sold out.
