Historic 6th Street


Sixth Street is party central in Austin.  It's situated right downtown and packed with bars, restaurants and clubs, and it's very popular with tourists and college kids.  It's a fun place to wander with a camera, though these days I usually do that early on a weekend morning instead of late on a Saturday night.  I took this image last year, early on a Sunday morning right after the huge Republic of Texas bike rally the evening before.  I was happy to find all these motorcycles lined up nicely, though I didn't appreciate somebody leaving their Dodge Caravan in the way!   How uncool did they feel, driving a minivan while everyone else was on a Harley?
