Things to do in Austin when you're dead.

The Backstory -
Yes, some people really are willing to drive across Texas to pick up a couple of eBay purchases.
Of course, we took this drive (hey, Neesie!) on the rainiest day of the year and were caught up in a deluge of practically biblical proportions!
In Austin, we met some nice eBayers, picked up the vintage-y lamps (which, okay, were worth it!) and then headed for home.
Late afternoon, we were blessed with this inexplicably quiet stretch of expressway and I fired a few shots off (with the camera! This had nothing to do with road rage!) through the rain-washed windshield.
Just a few moments later, of course, we were caught up in a rush hour traffic jam of practically biblical proportions! Seriously!
Sitting there, twiddling my thumbs, gave me a chance to plan a manipulated treatment for these two photos; something surreal and more than a bit outside the envelope.
Just like Austin.
