A Breeze, Some Trees, and a Window

A Breeze, Some Trees, and a Window

I was at Shiner's Saloon in downtown Austin the other night and while I was waiting on the band to get setup I snapped this shot. It is late January and we have had some warm days. A weak front was starting to blow in and there was a steady breeze blowing in through the open window at the end of the bar I was sitting at. Congress Ave looked oddly peaceful after I'd made my way into downtown through the heavy car and pedestrian traffic on a Saturday night. The bare trees, glittering with lights, had a calming effect as they swayed in the wind. A few couples walked by on the streets and sidewalks below. I felt a little more at peace in the moment so I took a photo to save it. Nothing special about the photo...and yet there is, to me anyway.
