The rules in short:
1. Post a reply photo that somehow relates to the last one posted.
2. You must be the photographer, with one exception. You may be in the photograph and you had someone else take it.
3. You may not reply to your last post unless no one else has replied in 24 hours.
4. You may not repeat your photographs posted in this thread. However, you may repost photos that you used in other threads on this forum.
5. If you wish, you may post how your photo relates to the last one. There may be times when someone doesn't get the connection.
OK, I'm going to start it off with something fairly easy to post a photo that relates. This shot was taken at the Main Street Arts Festival at night.
To make the next post a little easier, the next photos could be: a photo (day or night) of the Burk Burnett Building, a photo (day or night) of The Tower, a night photo of any type, a traffic light, tents of similar color, other Main St. Arts Festival photos, people photos, blurry people photos, Sundance Square plaques and logos, or even a street sign. Use your imagination and be creative in your replies. Have fun!

This shot is with my Rebel XSi with a Canon 400mm 5.6 and a Canon 2X converter on my tripod from my 34th floor balcony of my place in The Tower.
I took these pictures yesterday when I got home from work as the storm was approaching from the Northwest. At that point Fort Worth and Arlington was deep within the clouds, but Dallas was still bright and sunny. really stratified the landscape by distance. I like the effect. And though far from "Tack sharp" gets me pretty close to Dallas. Closer than I would have imagined without using my telescope. The near foreground is the Loop 820 area (See Luby's on left) the intermediate ground is North Arlington and then of course Downtown Dallas. Take a look.

This one's admittedly a little self-serving, but hey, not enough local concert photography in this place, and I thought it'd be nice to both promote my band (which now contains two forum members!) *and* a great local photographer, so here we go.
My indie rock band, The Diabolical Machines, performed at Lola's off 7th Street last week (along with our friends Lindby and Abandon City). My friend Melissa Claire Photography was on hand to take photos. To be clear: I did not take these. Melissa did, but I am posting them with her permission.
It was a ton of fun and we can't wait to do it again. We had Lindby's drummer Logan as our guest drummer for this show.

Two of the Fort Worth Forum Members have made the November/December issue of FW, Inc. Magazine. The two are yours truly, and Austin55. Our friend Tim Young (Downtown Fort Worth Walking Tours) took our photograph together at the Texas & Pacific Railway Terminal. Below is a link to the article by Samantha Calimbahin.

Do you guys love me? Cause I got a siteplan. You can click it to make it bigger.
Included are a some very interesting things.
-There's a lot of parking, but honestly it's less than I expected and a lot of it is within garages. Lots also leave room for potential expansion in the future. Overall, the design is much better than just to the west, for example.
-At the back is a lisitng for a 250 unit highrise.
-Lots of retail fronting 7th street, good news.
-Harold street looks to be the "main" street of Left bank, most of the major buildings are set on it.
-There's no interaction with the Trinity. This is dissapointing.
-Looks like the majority of the buildings will be 4-6 floors.
There's also this kinda cheesy water coloring rendering that doesn't show much, but maybe shows off some of the architectual motifs and gives a decent idea of what's up.

From the main map click on one of the several red dot hotspots to visit that location. In each scene there is a few more red dot hotspots you can see more scenes at that location. Just click the panorama to rotate the image around, up and down. To return to the main map.. click the small Toucan bird in the toolbar at bottom of page.
For Brian: We use our Canon 5d and Sigma 8mm 180° Fisheye lens tilted up 5° at f/8 and set to hyperfocal distance at .9 feet, all on a monopod. 4 images around and assembled them with PTgui stitching editor. Being 70 got to keep the little gray cells very active.

First, yesterday's delivery - an Ibanez EW20AS with figured ash front, back and sides, mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard - exquisite!
Next up, my Dean acoustic electric in African Bubinga wood, again with a mahogany neck
This is the 5-piece mahogany headstock of my Ovation Model 1124, sporting an ebony fingerboard on the other side
Next is the spruce body of my Charvel 625C, with rosewood back and sides and rosewood extended fingerboard
One of my favorites - this is the back of my 1964 Goya classical - flamed maple with a mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard
Last, but certainly not least, this homely little guy is my 1961 Gibson C1E, with maple top, mahogany back and sides and rosewood fingerboard. It may not look as good as some of the others, but the sound is the sweetest of all!

It was worth the drive however as I did not even know those neighborhoods existed. And sure enough, as I drove further West than our (Checkpoint Charlie) It got really beautiful. The hills, the flowers, the million dollar homes. (OK, in the sticks maybe 400K) Was very nice.
I am concerned that it is too far North however, to get Dallas and Fort Worth in the same telephoto shot. I think Dallas will be a hunk to the left of Dallas. (Like maybe a 200mm lens to get both distance.) I want to use 400 or 800mm to get both up close. I am going back to that spot either way as it is a great location. But, I may still be on the hunt for a spot in-line with Dallas and Fort Worth. As I did a lot of driving and carried a lot of gear, you knew you weren't going to get by without 2 pics just the same. A 60mm shot and a 400mm. Hazy, the both.
