Blue.

Austin, Texas is so damn blue in spring. It’s Austin’s most consistent feature most of the year, actually. But it’s in spring, when the late afternoon light etches the shadows into fine lines and a photographer can’t stop shooting, that our many shades of blue are so crystal clear and beguiling.
