is this what you're looking for?
Greetings from Austin Postcard, 600 block of West Annie, Billy Brakhage & Rory Skagen, 1997
yes, that is exactly what i'm looking for. i've seen some neat family pics taken there in some photog's portfolios but don't know if that is "allowed" as far as copyright issues go. does anybody know who owns it?
Happened to be there last night. It's just painted on the side of a building. As to who 'owns' it, do you mean the copyright to the original postcard, or to the mural art. (not sure which came first!) Billy Brakhage & Rory Skagen have the credit in the Chronicle and their name is on the mural too.
South First and Annie, about 4 blocks north of Oltorf, on the North West corner. Doesn't get much of light at sunset, though that's the general direction it faces. But it's in open shade around that time of day.
Second shot shows some context - not a lot of room in front of it to set up tripods or anything and there's quite a bit of traffic on first and turning the corner.
South First and West Annie...........Northwest corner the picture shown is looking due east on annie and the intersection is south first. It is on the side of the Neon Relic building
