One Year in Austin
It's been one year in Austin. On this day, last year, we packed our bags and started the drive from L.A. to Austin. I'm still discovering this city and the surrounding areas with my camera, but so far, I'm realizing... it's a great place to live.
The compilation: Formula One Grand Prix, Pennybacker bridge, the beautiful oak trees, downtown Austin, the swimming holes (straight out of a Huckleberry Finn book), Mueller park, the changing seasons (well, compared to L.A ), sunrise on Lake Travis, Blanton art museum, downtown Austin, snow, my favorite swimming hole.

Many places are still closed, but the golf courses are open. Thanks to the Avery Ranch Golf Club for giving us a taste of normality, because this world has felt anything but normal these past two months.
