No, this is not Dallas, but it is Texas. And who does’t like to escape to the beach every now and then?

The sun, the sand, the seafood, the sea creatures, the waves, the resorts; it’s only a hop, skip and a jump over the border to Mexico.

State Fair of Texas

Featured

The largest state fair in the United States — because everything’s bigger in Texas, right?

The rides, the midway, the cars, the food, the fried food, the exhibits, the animals. It’s all that and Big Tex!

The Chinese Lantern Festival came to Fair Park during the 2012 State Fair of Texas; it was such a huge hit, it was extended until the end of the year — well past the State Fair run.

A sea of beautiful plants, creatures and architecture — all made out of fabric and lit from the inside.

This beautiful exhibit inhabited The Dallas Arboretum for most of 2012. Spikes, balls, curly cues and spirals with the sun shining through — absolutely spectacular!

Although the glass was extremely colorful, the black and white photos are particularly striking.

Happy Hour photos

Featured

Let’s face it: Dallas has some pretty nice weather in the spring and fall. And a lot of Dallasites like to spend a lazy afternoon enjoying a tasty adult beverage on the patio. This is our collection; it’s a little margarita-heavy since we’re fascinated by the lime and the salt!
