DC Wandering

Instead of packing boxes for my move to New York (yay!), I'm procrastinating by looking through old photos I took of DC. Here are a few of them! The Metro (from an undergrad class project) Cherry Blossom Festival Neighborhoods    

Back to Austin

A few months after flying to Austin for a Maryland-Texas football game (go Terps), I headed back for SXSW.
