  downtown tacos
img_4101

One of the things I love about the downtown area of Austin is that half of it seems to look like a bomb site. I do not know the explanation for this, but it almost certainly is not bombs. The other half (to be fair more like 85%) of the downtown area of Austin looks like a cross between London, Dallas and Geneva (in my humble opinion): buildings from the last century mixed up with modern shiny extravaganzas. Behind this taco van you can see one of the latter. As with all great cities, the main thing is the contrasts.

Well Alice the picture certainly helps to describe the unorthodox planning of your city centre, as well as showing how life is in Austin.

Dear Daily Photo blogger. I'm sorry for the generic message, but I wanted to get this to as many of you as possible.

I have set up "The Daily Photo Spot" on Fanpop. If you go there, you can enter your specific City Daily Photo blog. Paris, London and Dubai are already there, so it would be great to see all of you DP Bloggers listed.
 
Do you have any pictures of Austin City Limits performances? This is my first visit to your blog, and I enjoy both the explanation and photo of this post.
 
Welcome kate :) We didn't make it to ACL I'm afraid- maybe next year. Do come back!

keropok, I am guessing you mean the thing that looks suspiciously like a CCTV camera? I think that's what it is anyway.
 
have a taco, and take more photos of constrast, then :)

A picture a day from the capital of slackerdom! (unless we had too many mango margaritas the night before). Always weird, sometimes wonderful... put on your flip-flops, grab a breakfast taco, and hop in the VW bus with us for a spin around town :)
