Floating down Lady Bird Johnson Lake on a boat...
The city of Austin (or the railroad depending on where the graffiti artists strike) regularly paints over graffiti on their bridges but these zen-like words of wisdom on a railroad bridge spanning the beautiful lake has remained for years. Have no idea how this graffiti artwork was accomplished...kinda boggles the mind.
