This is one of those iconic signs in Austin, and this place was made famous in the movie "Dazed and Confused". Anyone remember that movie? It was written and directed by Richard Linklater, and starred up-and-comers such as Matthew McConaughey, Ben Affleck and some others. It's sort of a classic, at least in some circles. Anyways, some of the scenes were filmed here, and it just so happens this place is about 5 minutes from my house. I was passing by recently, and having eyed this sign for a long time finally pulled over and took the dang shot. Do you have shots in mind that just float around forever, until you finally get them done? I sure do, and now I can get this off my list. Sadly, this was mid-morning and the light wasn't that great, so I may have to return around sunset one day and get it all lit up. It's tough having an addiction sometimes!
Though I am posting this on Thursday night, it will be Friday by the time most anyone reads it, so I wanted to take a moment and recognize our Veterans since Friday is Veterans Day. My Dad served for 30 years, and I have many friends who do or have served. I just want to say that I really appreciate all the service and sacrifices that are made on behalf of our country.
Also, Friday happens to be my wife's birthday, so Happy Birthday love!
