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.

Since last night was a rough night in the drinking department, my girlfriend and I decided to hit up an Austin brunch this morning. Luckily, we live right down the road from Threadgills, which happens to be one of the coolest restaurants/bars I’ve ever been to. They have live music outside most weekends and serve […]Read More →

It’s crazy how much of a workout you can get in your living room.Read More →

I love seeing skylines and I have had the pleasure of seeing many of them from Chicago to Los Angeles. Anyways, the skyline here in Austin […]Read More →
I just got back from National Trails Day and it was a blast! We managed to pick up an entire dumpster worth of garbage and hauled it out to the parking lot. It was amazing how much stuff we were able to pull out. The dump site we cleaned up was located a good mile […]Read More →
