Walking South Congress
Today I was down doing some business at South Congress and took a break to grab some lunch and walk around. Some of my favorite things about the South Congress area are the feel of the stores and their unique signage, so I focused on that in my photos. And there’s always at least one cool vintage car or hog around to take a quick shot of. The ghost of SXSW still lingers with remarks on the signs and shop windows still pushing festival souvenirs.
After a pork belly sub Korean-style (better than their happy hour sliders, if you ask me!) with an IPA at Snack Bar, I popped into a few shops, and treated myself to a t-shirt from Austin favorite Storyville. I couldn’t resist the siren’s call of this Hello? tee. Maya Star aways delights me with their curio-style collection of unique jewelry pieces, Jonathan Adler pottery, and affordable to mid-range bohemian designer clothing with just the right bit of modernity and girlishness.
As I headed back to my car, I took a couple of shots of capoeira friends in mid-air action in the yard of the South Congress Avenue Baptist Church.
