Photographer's Note

Longer Title: "Condominium Canyon (Butchered Tree Silhouette)"

I'm feeling slightly jaded this weekend, although any objective evaluation must conclude I'm very lucky. I'm listening to a number of bands playing about a mile away in Zilker Park at the Austin City Limits Music Festival ("Dawes" is playing at this moment) and the weather is good enough to allow the windows to be open and a nice breeze to blow through.

But this is what's happening to South Austin, a last bastion of affordable close-in housing. There is no stopping progress; development can be regulated, but not aesthetics.

I will disclose that this new complex on South Lamar has a "pretty" side, too, but walking the dog today, we saw the back entrance, paved from stem to stern, with the only "greenery" the shadow of a tree that has been severely pruned.
