Terrell Post Office at Night


I celebrated my 39th birthday this past Saturday, March 22, and I decided to get a new camera with my gift money. I’ve been looking at them for months - every time I went in WalMart.… when it came down to buying one I decided to check around and read as much as I could. I’ve been using a Samsung A7, which I really like.

After looking at a lot of different brands and models – and driving all around Dallas and areas east, I found the best prices online. I finally decided on the Samsung NV11, which I bought online Sunday night and it just came in the mail today! It has a lot of features I need to read the manual to learn how to work, but I’m a learn-as-I-go type of person. I am from Missouri, the Show-Me state, after all.

So…. These are my first photos with the new camera – night photos, since I had to charge the battery before I could use it. =) This is the Terrell Post Office, located on North Frances, just north of the downtown strip. The first photo above shows the back of the post office and the loading dock. This second photo shows the front of the building – it came out with a slight green hue to it, so I changed it to b&w.

Congrats on your new camera, Brian! I really like both of these photos. There's something very special about night photos of Terrell, as I've seen them at your site and at Jim's. Neat!
