little flowers

today's photo is a small weed-flower that most people would probably never notice =) the flower itself is about as big as the end of my pinky, and can be found in small bunches in the yards around town...

today i have a red model T that I photographed this past weekend... looks like the first mini-van to me!

in the driver's seat

another photo from the model t club meeting from this past weekend. it amazes me to see the craftsmanship in the old cars and imagine the vision the creators had of the automobile. it hasn't changed that much from these old archetypes!

model t club

ok, as promised - one more photo from the model t club meeting in terrell today. i kind of liked the b&w effect on this one. i'll be posting a few more shots of the cars over the next week!


okay, i apparently missed saturday! =) so that means i'll have to post twice on sunday! yesterday we took a road trip to choctaw to donate our hard-earned money to the indians at the casino... and they were happy to take it. i guess they're trying to get enough money to pay for the high rise hotel and casino they're building next door!

the model T club rolled through Terrell today and met at the heritage museum on the corner of Frances and High Streets. I'll have another photo later today =)

friday night in dallas

as most large city dwellers can tell you - never wait til the last minute to try and make an appointment! luckily, i left for the symphony tonight early enough to not let the traffic concern me =) the concert started at 7:30p, and i arrived at the meyerson right at 7p!

mums the word

today's photo is some flowers that i shot on my walk through downtown last night. chrysanthemums are very popular this time of year, and can be found just about everywhere you look in all colors and sizes.

marley over at Cheltenham Daily Photo had a really cool shot of some green mums the other day - click over and take a look if you have some time =)

'tis the season!

i walked through downtown terrell tonight, where the businesses were decked out with seasonal decorations and colors... for me, it's halloween.. but maybe it's just fall harvest or autumn decorations if you prefer!

one more time

ok, one more shot of the Iris theater... last night's photo was taken on my walk up to the store at dusk... and tonight's photo was taken on my way back home, about 10 minutes later than yesterday's photo - even though it looks much darker =)

iris at dusk

here i find myself at the end of the weekend again. i've been a little lazy and skipped a few days of posting... =) today's photo is one i just took of the iris theater tonight as the sun was setting. of course the street light is in the way, as usual, but i loved the color of the sky. dusk is my favorite time of the day, always has been =)

state fair of texas

a few more photos from the state fair... this one could be titled things that are red =) the first one of the marine corps band, which jim over at terrell daily photo has several really good shots posted on his site....

the 2nd photo is one of my favorite treats as a kid. well actually, i always wanted one and then when i got it i would eat the sugary part off the outside and throw away the apple =)


ok, one more shot of the bungee jumpers. i couldn't decide between yesterday's photo and this one so i'm posting both! =)

bungee jumpers

i can't say i would ever put myself in such a situation at the fair. hanging from 2 small support ropes with 2 other people way up in the air. no way.

big bananas!

just what everyone needs for their home - a big banana! the bright yellow stuffed fruits were offered as prizes at several of the games and booths at the fair =)

texas star

i braved my fear of heights to take a ride on the Texas Star ferris wheel at the fair yesterday! =) it's not so bad if you close your eyes and have your death grip on the side bars =)

La Azteca

La Azteca, the local groceria y carniceria, y panaderia, y taqueria, sported a brand new sign as I passed on my way home today. The first photo shows the old sign which has been on the building for a number of years, the new sign is below. I'll have to go back another night and try to photograph it when it's lit up! =)
