  1. Hey!!! If I had been in Dallas, we could have met up. These are my stomping grounds, so to speak! I like that bit of lens flare in the memorial shot!

    Where are all the people??? I know you said it was Sunday but still, I”ve never seen a city w/o a ton of people.

    These shots are awesome! That JFK memorial looks like quite a place!

  4. Michael, where are YOUR Dallas pictures? 😉
    I think the lens flare makes the picture. That memorial is pretty ugly.

    Doreen, Dallas isn’t that busy on the week-ends, even on a beautiful day like last Sunday. A lot of the stores and restaurants downtown are closed, too. In the first picture you can see the JFK Memorial on the left, then Reunion Tower, and that pretty building is supposed to be the visitor’s center. We didn’t go in, because we were parked at a meter and didn’t have that much time 😛
    We need to go back and park in a lot!!!

  5. I wish our shops were shut on Sundays: it is more relaxing without the traffic noise and flurry of work days, and the knowledge that you could be getting things done that you didn’t have time for during the week.

    I have to ask, what are the things in the foreground without windows? ( a grey thing and a blue thing?)

  6. Everywhere else the stores are open on Sundays here, too. Downtown Dallas is mostly office buildings, so the stores and restaurants get most of the business during the week.
    The two buildings without windows are parking garages. The blue one has an ocean scene (wales) painted on it. I want to go back sometime and get a better picture of it.

  7. So you’re going landscape on us? Just kidding. Nice shots. When I am in high population density areas, i have been known to go crazy looking for those places without people. And I often find them… even in NYC!

  8. Yup, totally went landscape on ya here 😉
    There are some really neat buildings, I just wish we had more time to walk around and take more pictures. Oh well, it’s not that far, I can drag hubby back down there again.

    I love #2, Maybe it’s the lens flare, but I like the symmetry and unique perspective.

  10. Amy, that was the only interesting shot (of that ugly memorial) that I could come up with.

  11. You build your car parks so you can’t see out? Or is there an open section around the other side?

  12. These are great, I’m ready to go back and take more pictures of downtown. Next time though, I’m going walk around parts of Deep Ellum, with hubby of course. It’s not the safest place but the murals on the buildings are awesome!

  13. BeyondBlue…. I think there’s an open side, too?

    Amber, where’s Deep Ellum? I know where the West End is (we walked through part of that, I think) but that’s about it! LOL
