Thank you Renata. The pianos are a great addition here....it has been
going on for a few years. I am always happy when I get to one and
someone is playing. This fellow was making some beautiful music.

My mind was made up that day to visit Dallas. My car was parked at the train station in a spot that I carefully selected knowing that it was going to be in a dense shadow of a nice tree upon my return. I got a day pass and off we went. Nifty and I boarded a local Dart train, which is really more like a European or Australian tram and is called a street car here. The sight-seeing route was carefully planned a few days ago and included some logically and strategically placed landmarks or other sites worth visiting, at least in my view. I wanted to start with some early history of the city and the county of Dallas. Later on I wanted to visit other sites that were not too far away from my main route to save a lot of unnecessary walking.
It was a HOT day in Dallas; dripping hot. No matter what destination I had chosen it would have been equally hot. At least Dallas has some shade as long as one chooses to walk in a particular direction on the shady side of a street. Usually the East West ones are best at the time of day when I was in town.
First some stuff about how Dallas (external link) was established and by whom with a few other little bits of history but not too much. I’m neither a historian nor a writer and we are not here for some long-winded stories; after all this is a photography forum.

I started with a site called Pioneer Plaza (external link). This bronze cattle drive is located on the actual Shawnee Trail Drive of the 1850’s. Quite interesting and definitely very Texan. I love the Texas longhorns (external link). The sun light was extremely harsh and the shadows extremely strong. I didn’t shoot bracketed for HDRs. I suppose I just took a path of least resistance in this heat.
The sculptures are really wonderful and I took as many shots as I could but I don't think shooting over 50 beast from every angle was a good idea :)

There were some shown pooping but I was too tired and too concerned about my ankle that has a cracked bone and torn tendons and didn't particularly feel like walking around very uneven ground and landing in a hospital having surgery :) I shot one beast's clean butt instead :)

More longhorns viewed from across the street and one of the few riders/cowboys.

Quite a place to get some nice shots ;)

I appreciated your post, I just checked and mine was at half mast. All's right with the world again.


Glad to help, Chet. :rolleyes:

I think you should talk it over with kbColorado as Winter is Coming for him. I think he might enjoy shooting some fall images from his area, but I'll leave it between the two of you.

100% OK with you keeping this for as long as you like, Renata! I'm enjoying the flurry of shots from you and all the Keepers of the Nifty Flame!

deep greens and blues are the colors I choose ...

OK, after I had left the Pioneer Plaza, I moved on to an area of some serious history that happened in Dallas!
Some shots taken from the plaza showing two court houses. The white building is home to the Dallas County Criminal Courts (external link) and the red building is Old Red Museum (external link).

More shots of both courts from different perspectives. One depicts the Old Red Museum with a sliver of another famous landmark...more about it later.
A view of the Old Red Museum looking at from the area where JFK was assassinated!!!

Some interesting displays in the Old Red Museum.
I have to say that I didn't go into the proper museum area, simply because it required some hefty entrance fees and I could have easily blown over $150 just looking at those displays. I hope you all forgive me :) I'm a starving artist who wants to show you as much as I can without burning my bank account.

And I' so sorry that my images are not necessarily in the right order , though I tried very hard. Here is a view of the old court house looking diagonally from the JFK assassination place. The light was very harsh and I didn't shoot bracketed...so sorry.
