It seems peculiar for me to introduce this post as a remix considering I have yet to formally introduce my experiences in downtown Austin on this very here blog. So technically, there should be no "re-" in the mix at all. Nevertheless, I can assure you that photographed proof of my random weekend strolls within my local metropolis is coming quite soon. For those who prefer to believe that I'm a more of a bedroom dweller, constantly treating myself to hours of pillow-hugging, cereal-munching, style.com scrolling action... you hit the nail on the head- I do in fact do a lot of that. But (and that's a very overemphasized but), I do often find the at-times reserved spirit to venture out into places unknown and come out in the end with a cherubic smile on my face! (actually, I do have proof of that- see below). Case in point, a splendid afternoon I spent in the aforementioned metropolis a couple of weekends ago with photographer duo Bryan and Mae, wherein we laughed, drank coffee, and then I alone fell victim to their hordes of fancy camera equipment. In fact, the very reason I was so able to produce the dorky-looking smile in the photo comes as a result of a mix of high-power java and Mae's unforgettable dance-jams behind the lens. Two things I can no longer live without.
So, after this dragged-out explanation, I believe that in a way this is a remix after all- an unexpected combination of high-quality photography and the lower alternative as provided by my measly point-and-shoot. I'll just have to smile my way through a few more months of somewhat average pixel count in the same way I smile here. Smile with me? *Cue cheesy look-off-into-the-distance grin*
