One cheap way to beat the Texas heat is by crashing apartment-complex pools. In this photo, Victoria Resendez and Arielle Sonnenschein shotgun beers next to one such pool in Austin. This image is part of a series called “Bitche$ on a Budget,” and is taken from an Austin-based music, youth, fashion and counterculture blog called “Hangover Breakfast,” which my friend Deborah White and I run for fun in our spare time. It’s become a tradition to shotgun beers at the beginning of every photo shoot. For more shenanigans that will probably get you in trouble at work, check out www.hangoverbreakfast.biz.
