A couple of images from the itsy bitsy amount of snow we got this morning in Austin. Not exactly a winter wonderland, but nice anyway!

Some of my fav photos fron the Chronicle for 2013. Everything from the Texas House and Senate Abortion drama (including Wendy Davis standing alone during her filibuster) to Barton Springs, dance, the Luminarium, the release of Fran Keller after 23 years of false imprisonment, and the Travis County Rodeo. I love my job!

Some of my fav shots from Fun Fun Fun Fest this year. I admit I hadn’t been to FFF before. Loved the cool vibe!

For all my trips to NYC, this was my first time to see the Statue. Gorgeous and inspiring.

The Zoppe Italian Family Circusa set up a giant circus tent  on the Long Center West Lawn, visible to everyone at Auditorium Shores and the south side of downtown Austin. This was a truly small family circus, something I personally had never seen before. I attended a short rehearsal the morning before the performance.
