Day 7: More Northeast-ish Texas

It was a stunning day: super weather and great subject matter. I was banging through my list and still wasn’t making great progress. Traffic, bigger distances than estimated between stuff. And now with the day lost due to rain in Arkansas, I’m about two days behind where I’d like to be. Tomorrow, I’ll have to really prioritize and skip stuff — which is always painful to do. The forecast for tomorrow is for lots of rain and thunderstorms — a bummer since I’ll probably be shooting “stuff that matters”.

Someday, I’m going to park the van in a quiet shady spot or find someone to babysit the dogs while I do Dallas on foot. There is so much fantastic midcentury & other stuff downtown and I miss so much even driving slow in the van. I could probably stay a week and still not do a halfway thorough job. Same probably goes for any really big city. Maybe when I retire and don’t have to get back to the job by a certain date, I can do more off-list exploring.

Here are some random shots of buildings & details from downtown Dallas:

And now for some signage & such:

This giant 8-ball in Fort Worth looks pretty old and has some nice crudeness to it. Doesn’t appear to be a modern plastic thing.

the windmill on top of this sign spins and rotates; in Sansom Park, on Jackboro Highway;

a nice combination Streamline Moderne & rooftop signage — also in Sansom Park on Jackboro Highway:
