It’s been on my agenda all summer to get to Austin to (1) visit a friend from undergrad and (2) see what all the hype is about. My time here was less hype and more peace. I’m sure the city is an entirely different beast during SXSW; but it was good to be here for the tail end of summer, soaking up the sun and enjoying the heat. While I was here, I found myself in front of Marc Mayes lens again and magic was created. Here’s our collaboration, Somewhere in Austin. Special thanks to him for using his lens to somehow find the light hiding inside of me that I sometimes forget about. Also, check out our Alter Ego photoshoot from a couple of years ago in Columbia, Mo.
