  2. Roofline on Flickr.

    Cute house under restoration/redevelopment in the Bishop Arts District, Oak Cliff, Dallas. I loved how the brown shingles and that cheerful yellow paint looked against the sky.

  3. Rust and Restoration on Flickr.

    Chains hanging from an old loading dock door on the ground floor of the Sawyer Building, located in South Main urban village in the Near Southside. The Sawyer was in sad shape for many years - its ground floor had been bricked over, its brick and stone were filthy, its awnings gone, windows neglected, and vacant of all human activity.

    It has now been restored to its original appearance and re-opened, with office and retail space on the ground floor and apartments upstairs. It helped start the current slowly-rolling revitalization of South Main.

    Via Flickr:
    Stopped on the side of the road, somewhere in the Texas desert on the way to Marfa. The landscape, and the big open sky above, were stunning.

  7. The Usual on Flickr.

    Via Flickr:
    Another shot with the new Watts lens for Hipstamatic. Very bold colors and contrast with this lens, and the purplish vignette usually doesn’t cause much of a problem.

    The Usual, our friendly neighborhood local smoke-free Prohibition-era cocktail lounge in the Near Southside.

  10. Birds, But Not Birds (by Tomorrowville)

    The center of the courtyard here features an art installation covered in fake birds.  Meanwhile, the concrete beams ringing the courtyard are covered with metal spikes to prevent real birds from nesting there.  Taken with an iPhone 4.
