Define touristy. Few people take photos of stuff that is ugly or boring.

Although I'm sure many will claim Leslie is "touristy" too.


For NON-TOURISTY how about these?

Still not sure what Non-touristy means, but here are a few more photos of the Austin area that I consider non-traditional.

It is so sad for us oldtimers, I was born in Austin in 1941 and lived there untill 1984, all the "nice new buildings" were built over the small town charm that I remember. Too bad but it is lost forever to the New Austin that I don't know. The last time I was there in about 2000 I couldn't even find my way around.

All good things come to an end. Onward thru the fog.

The Armadillo World Headquarters was a one of a kind.
