Picture Post, Sunday May 6, 2007

When we lived in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area in the mid to late 80s, Lovely Wife worked for Bright Mortgage in Dallas. "Bum" Bright, the business' owner was also the owner of the Dallas Cowboys at the time. Just a mile or so down the road from Bright Mortgage there was a lake, and we went and ate lunch there a couple of times. We went back there one evening to let the sun go down and for me to try to get some evening and night shots of the Dallas skyline. The following three images are 35mm slide scans of that evening. Canon AE-1, Tokina 35-105mm lens, Kodachrome 64 slide film.



When Number One Daughter was a toddler, we went on a trip to the Galveston area below Houston. This is a pic of she and I, taken by Lovely Wife of course. Dig my flat-top, and how working in the sun had bleached my hair blond from brown.

Some parrots at the Fort Worth Zoo. I always end up taking zillions of shots when we go to zoos and later I wonder why I bothered. Zoo photographs suck in general. But I have always liked this slide, the colors of these birds transcends them being in a cage. Beautiful.
