Back Porch, 6 x 8
Today I spent a few hours across the street from one of the offices at the Riata apartments. Its design is reminiscent of farm and ranch houses built by German immigrants to central Texas in the late 1800s. It's kind of ironic, but they didn't make apartment offices like this when I was growing up. Nor did they care as much about preserving local foliage. Both wonderful trends, however late.
