New Cards for Dallas and Fort Worth

As part of a recent commercial assignment, I spent some time out photographing both Dallas and Fort Worth at night – something I’ve been needing to get back to for some time.  As a result, I assembled a collection of images I needed to construct new cityscapes.

You can order these in note cards from our note card page.  You can also order them in any print size from 16×20 up to wall size by simply emailing me your requirements (if you’d like a signed copy) or head on over to our fulfillment site and place your order for prints there.

Check out our Texas Note Card page for the complete selection of images.

 

No, this does not exist in nature.  These images are composites.

The 2013 Dallas cityscape includes a sunrise sky with the Texas flag ghosted in, a full moon, the Margaret Hunt Hill bridge designed by Santiago Calatrava and the Perot Museum.  the BofA building outlined in green argon, Fountain Place, Reunion Tower and the Omni Hotel are all prominently featured in this compilation.

Calatrava Bridge Note Cards Added

The most requested image at the Deep Ellum art show last month was the Margaret Hunt Hill (Calatrava) bridge that now spans the Trinity River.  Something I had been meaning to shoot for some time, but just did not have the “right” conditions when I had the time to shoot.

So finally last week, I decided I was shooting no matter the conditions and would just tweak the images to my liking.

We will be distributing these to our dealers shortly and have plenty on hand for our upcoming art shows: May 18-20 Grapevine, Texas and Memorial Day Weekend – Granbury, Texas.

We have one panoramic shot that is very dramatic and ethereal titled “Oz”

And then we have the much more “standard” version of this iconic gateway, titled “Calatrava Reunion” with Reunion Tower framed by the cables of the Calatrava Bridge.
