This past weekend, my girlfriend and I had an awesome time beach camping on Padre Island. It was a great experience and something we plan on doing often.
This was the first time I’ve ever camped right on the beach before. I’ve slept on the beach a few times in the past but never in a tent or on purpose. We literally setup camp right above the high tide line and slept under the stars.
It’s an amazing feeling waking up to the sound of the ocean. The only downside was the fact that the inside of our tent was like 100 degrees. But it was a small price to pay for hanging out on the beach.
The other day, I spent some time wandering around taking pictures of the Austin skyline. I actually remembered to bring my remote and tripod this time so I took some photos and merged them into HDR (high dynamic range) shots. Here’s how they came out.

It turns out there are around 1.5 million bats that call the Congress Avenue bridge home from March until November. I just so happen to live right next to the bridge so they fly over our apartment complex every night.

Here’s a video of the bats coming out at around 8:15 PM:

One of the coolest places I have ever shopped at was Buffalo Exchange in Tempe, AZ. It’s a used clothes store that sells everything from T-shirts and jeans to hats and shoes. Best part of all is the fact that they will also buy your clothes in exchange for cash or store credit. It’s a […]
