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.

Updated Frisco and Desolation Galleries

In researching my vast library of images, several desolation-themed shots stood out as candidates for processing.  In talking with Realtors the last few weeks, a recurring theme came up regarding staying in touch with clients.  Employing an abandoned house on the cover, along with text implying it just might be time to move, was the impetus for digging through my collection for more examples on this topic.  As a result, several more abandoned buildings have been added to the Desolation library.  In the process I also reprocessed a rusted-out, abandoned car I found in Lampassas last year.

On my way to Babes for a meeting the other day, I noticed Old Number Nineteen, Frisco’s historic steam engine, was perfectly clean.  This is unusual, to say the least.  In all the years we’ve lived here, I’ve stopped by Heritage Center in hopes of finding the train is pristine condition for a dramatic shot – and it never has been.  It is typical for it to be coated with dust, dirt and water spots from one end to the other.

But this time it looked like someone had just given the engine and caboose a thorough bath and it sparkled in the autumn sun.  So I took the opportunity to properly capture this bit of Americana for addition to my Fine Art note card collection – and inclusion in Volume II of Texas As I See It.  Below is one of the two photos of Number Nineteen added to the Frisco gallery today:

Please Patronize Our Resellers

October 5, 2011: It is perfectly fitting that our sixth reseller should be the 6th floor museum in Dallas.  If you have never been there, it is a riveting display of the facts relating the most heinous crime in Dallas history when JFK was gunned down in broad daylight.  We highly recommend visiting the 6th floor museum and spending some time strolling Dealey Plaza and the infamous Grassy Knoll.  The weather is perfect for this outing.

A nice way to see the area is via Segway.  Dallas Segway Tours is a client of mine (I shot their marketing images) and it’s a really fun way to see the area while absorbing some history in the process.
