Emily Pellerin, 2014
On our first night within Austin’s city limits, we hung around Mount Bonnell, just long enough for the sun to set and for the river below to reflect what was left of the day. Jay and I were visiting with friends and gladly found ourselves making a few new ones along the way.
The majority of our time was occupied by coffee shops, movies, concerts, hiking, and so many great, Texas-style restaurants. Thanks to Emily and Sara for showing us around and to others for such awesome recommendations.
Before heading out, I was able to photograph this beautiful woman in her cosy, well-lit home, tucked away in the North-central part of town. Emily informed me of her travels to London, where she worked as a writer for Glass Magazine, what life has been like in Austin since my last visit, and her strong desire to return to New York within the next few years. Until then, I’m in anticipation of future correspondence, as her writing is so damn good.
Here’s to a break from the nine-to-five and to some wonderful friends down South.
