On our trip to Austin in March, we went along the Colorado River and made our way to the Congress Avenue Bridge. The bridge is home to the largest urban bat colony in the world. While it was daytime, you can hear a light chitter of the resident safe in their homes underneath.

PS - We finally exchanged our Austin photos - more posts soon!

“The U.S. Supreme Court has held that people have the right to an attorney at the arraignment stage. Yet most counties don’t guarantee free attorneys at these early hearings for people who can’t pay.”

Some arrestees in lack legal representation at a stage that can determine their cases’ outcome. The ACLU and some officials want to change that. New today from Staff Writer Michelle Pitcher: https://www.texasobserver.org/travis-county-magistration-aclu/

Red has always been the most challenging color for me to photograph. But I've learned if I slightly underexpose the photo, the red color doesn't get so washed out.

The Southwest Airlines checked baggage line was ridiculously long at the Austin airport today. It stretched outside to the rental car building and then zig-zagged around inside. Total time: about 2.5 hrs or so
