Doesn’t sound very romantic, does it? Well, I guess it’s not. But it is nestled in among the trees in the hills of beautiful Clarksville in Austin, TX. I have passed this spot many times. I saw this particular image one night when my wife and I were out walking our newly rescued little all – kinds – of – dogs – in – one, Nina. It was December 2013 and we had started packing to move out from our little 1 bedroom right behind Cippolina, where we had lived for three years. It was freezing cold – literally freezing – and dog and wife were eager to back to the warmth of the apartment on 1200 Elm Street. I just had to stop and take some photos of the location – the trees were so pretty against the dark sky and the street lights and lamp posts. It’s just one of those spots you pass. Not a place where you see people having picnics, although they could. Just a spot. Nestled in among the trees in my favorite neighborhood.
