[photos|art] Austin’s Foundations

While we were in Austin, Donnie Reynolds took Dad, Lisa Costello and me to the Foundations in Austin, Texas. [ Google Maps ]

I remember this abandoned condo complex project from when I lived there, but at the time it was just a concrete maze on the side of a hill. Now, though, it is a graffiti park.
