I've always loved this canopy thing, which I walked past every day on my super secret route to my building.
And of course, what summary of campus architecture is complete without the tower.
And where did I spend my days, you may ask? In the basement of this oh so beautiful building, ECJ.
The Frost Tower isn't on campus, but I think it's one of the coolest building in Austin. It totally looks like an owl.
This mural (the next 2 pictures) has so many little Austin insider tidbits. The naked guy running with the bongos on the right of the top picture is Matthew McConaughey.
This mural is on the side of the Gingerbread Man downtown, and I think it's my favorite.

The first two pictures were on my old street, Lanier Place NW, which is on the border between Adams Morgan and Mt. Pleasant. Interestingly enough, Adams Morgan wasn't a neighborhood until the 1950s when they integrated the black and white school districts and made a new one in the middle.
These are my favorite row houses in DC, just off of Calvert Street in Adams Morgan. I used to pass them every day on my way to the metro.
Rowhouses in Mt. Pleasant.
A gorgeous house around the corner from the above rowhouses, which in my dreams someday I will buy. Unfortunately it will have to stay in my dreams.
Rowhouses on Monroe St NW and 16th St in Columbia Heights.

A statue somewhere by the mall. I think it was in front of the Latin American Museum, if such a thing exists.

The view from my desk on a normal day.
The view from my office during a thunderstorm. I believe this is the time we lost power for 30 minutes or so.
