Some recent photos that I've taken:
Sundance Square and the Christmas tree in this week's fog:
Using the mirror of a Harley Davidson to take a photo in the Stockyards:
On Houston Street. I ride past the Omni and the Convention Center every day on my b-cycle heading into work:
John really liked this one I took recently of the Jack-in-the-Box on Berry near TCU:

The fountains can actually be programmed that way. Was there something scheduled for the stage area?
Posted 19 December 2014 - 05:17 PM
Not that I'm aware of. Nothing was happening on stage during the time I was there.

And, of course, I saw Dr. Kent Brantly, the doctor who survived Ebola, at Buon Giorno the other day:

mmmdan and dangr.dave, thank you for your latest posts. Downtown looks very nice at night. I also see the plane flying around all of the time, and I had thought about going up in it.

My wife and I have been done the Christmas light flight three times now. It's always a good time. They frequently have a groupon which makes it very reasonable.

Does this spire seems a bit weird and under whelming; what purpose does it serve or is it just my lack of appreciation?
Posted 23 December 2014 - 10:16 AM
It's really not a spire. It's called the Star Tower and it marks the corner of the building and a main entry point to where you can go into the corridor leading to the exhibit hall, the main lobby of the building, or up to the ballroom. It was never meant to make a huge statement. With a building this size, it would take a massive tower to do that. You might take a look at the photographs within the individual building listing at Fort Worth Convention Center to get a better idea of how it works with the overall building and the Water Gardens.

Oh, Okay. From that perspective, its cooler than I imagined. Is it ever illuminated?
Posted 23 December 2014 - 08:32 PM
Yes, it is illuminated when there is an event going on inside the center.

Nice shots, Austin. You have been lucky to get up into some of those towers recently.

It's not an otter. It is a nutria. The oxbow is full of them, as is a good bit of the river downstream to the dam just east of Main Street.

Beautiful shots, John.
Edit: I remembered as soon as I posted that the falls are actually on Farmers Branch Creek, so I suppose that increases the chances of them being natural.
Posted 19 May 2015 - 12:47 PM
Thanks for the comments, JBB. The falls are natural, but there have been some man made intrusions. Until recently, they were on the NAS/JRB property. At the top of the falls was a base access road with a pour of concrete over the creek. If you look at www.historicaerials.com, you can see the falls all the way back to 1952. The creek is still in its natural location until the levees turn into the hillside. Originally, the creek turned north before it emptied into the Trinity River, several yards northwest of where it does at the current time. With the work of building the trail to the falls, the creek was straightened a little bit and boulders were placed on the sides to reduce erosion.
