Shopping with Chris.

Back on April 5, Chris and I went shopping on South Congress Street in Austin. It was that day we ate the calamari at Vespaio. I like the noir atmosphere in this shop:

Try on the hat:

And take what I always think of as the Elvis Costello "My Aim Is True" pose.

You have a handsome son Ann.

Why is his shirt a different color in the second photo? Is it some sort of photoshop filter, or was the light just wacky? Cool shots, though.

So cute. I'm in love.

I love seeing the pictures from time you spend with your sons. I find them very touching. Maybe it's because adult child/parent relationships are so much more voluntary than those of younger children.

I join Boston70's comment. Plus, that pic looks caught rather than posed, and those pics are always better.

I turned down the color saturation in the second picture. Just a matter of taste.

If Chris had a goatee, that hat would make him look like Leon Redbone!

You're a great photographer Ann. You shoulda gone to art school. ;)

Elvis had the serious pidgeon toe thing going, but I see what you mean!

Ann, you have just recently gotten to taking pictures, right?

Your pictures are actually really good.

Have you ever thought about showing them to a gallery around Madison?

Wouldn't it be kind of cool to have your own showing?

I would actually consider buying some of them. I especially like the Dartmouth and Austin pictures.

Boston70:

How do you define "recently"?

The pictures, the images, have been an intrinsic part of the experience (of whatever type) here, at least for me, for a long time--which long time, I think, is relatively close to the beginning, in blogtime.

Also, if you like Althouse's images--and, please, accept my apology in advance if I'm stating the obvious--click any one of them to be carried to Flickr. Click, and explore.
