Blue is the color of summer in Austin.
Blue skies. Blue pools. Blue lakes. Blue neon. Blue tattoos. Blue is happy. Blue is what I see every time I go out with my camera in Austin.
If you love blue and live in Austin, you’re in luck. Austin has a lot of Blues: True Blue Tattoos (above, on Red River Street since 1992), Blue Velvet Vintage Clothing, Blue Dalhia Bistro, Blue Note Bakery, Royal Blue Grocery, Blue Star Cafeteria, Blue Bridal Boutique, Blue Starlite Drive-In, Blue Moon Glassworks, Stella Blue Boutique, Blue Avocado, Blue Moon Rock N Blues, Blue Genie Art Industries, Blue Ribbon Barbecue, Blue Lapis Light, even Blues on the Green.
Green? We’ll have to cover green another day. ♣
