Odd Random Knobs

Austin is Weird

On my last trip to Austin, I went on a photowalk with a number of people. We were an odd group, much like these knobs, but we were all tied together by our love for photography. During that walk I came across the strangest knobs cemented to a store front. I to this day, I have no idea why they are there…if anyone knows what this is, I would love to know! Karen Hutton stopped with me and we both snapped several pictures. Karen kept saying, there’s something there, I think there is something…nope, nothing, there is nothing here, moving on. Her banter that night really made me laugh! Even after Karen stopped shooting, I kept trying and got this. For some reason I really like these strange orbs. They somehow sum up the entire evening.

    The knobs were put there to keep people from sitting on the window sills. Austin has done a lot of not so nice things to try to discourage homeless people from hanging out downtown. As a result, there are no more buskers or street artists and downtown is one of the dirtiest downtowns I’ve ever seen.

      Thanks for that bit of info Jackie! I had no idea, and it is sort of sad.
