I flew into Austin late the night before. It was 2013, and I was in a city I hadn’t yet spent much time in, but I knew one thing– I needed to meet some photographers. I was working on a skunkworks project, and knew from past experience that photographers were a great match for the project. […]
Edward makes the Austin Toy Box special His name is Edward, and he’s awesome. He was sitting outside of his East Austin house (which I’ve dubbed the Austin Toy Box) when I happened to ride by on a lazy Monday afternoon.
