    Last-ish second post to see if anyone wants to go shooting Sunday in Austin. Supposedly it'll be 62degrees. Open on specific location, or we can wander! If you have any interest, post up! :)

    I can. Possible meetup would be Starbucks on congress and 5th. We can then cruse the streets for photo ops.

    Sounds fun, but I have to work until mid afternoon. I could probably meet up after 3 or so.

    Cool! I'm usually off right at 3, it takes about 10-15 minutes to bike to 5th and Congress. See y'all at Starbucks.

    Great photos guys! Really like the two bikers taking a rest by JJ and the circle of tall buildings by Eliot.

    too bad those guys in the stop sign pic didnt put up their hands with their silly "i know im famous, but no photos please" talk
    that woulda looked cool in the shot!

    lol at the tree branch kid, i remember you saying "too bad it cant shoot through branches" or something like that! :D

    the cyclists that had to take a break and smoke cracked me up. its almost like seeing someone pushing an oxygen tank while smoking. at least to me! lol
