SRV at Sunset

    Newer Older

    This is the famous Stevie Ray Vaughan statue in Austin. It's almost as famous as that little statue of mermaid in Copenhagen, Denmark (at least to Texans). It sits on the edge of Lady Bird Lake and I see it almost every day when I go on a run. In fact, I saw it today. We've had over a week of 100+ degree days here in Austin, and it's getting a little old. I'm not the young man I used to be when it comes to this sort of thing.

    You can see a few cranes out there over downtown. They are in the middle of building two more high rise condos. I've been waiting patiently for them to finish so I can grab a shot of the new Austin skyline of 2010. 2010 - it's pretty close - can you believe it?

      Please accept my apologies! I've just checked and I was wrong with the spelling. The correct spelling is as you originally had it - "Vaughan". I originally spelled it "Vaughn" and got into bother. Remind me to check my facts before posting corrections in future.
