So I decided to bring these photos into Black & White and put them together as a series. These are old, vintage signs that are still up and in use by their business owners around the Dallas, Texas area. I just love these signs and started to photograph them. It might be a bit clichè to see them in Black & White, but I kind of loved it.

MORE VINTAGE SIGNS!

I have noticed that a lot of original signage is used by businesses here in the local Dallas area. Some establishments look sketchy while others have moved on with the times, but decided to hold on to their wonderfully dated business sign. It is a part of their history and a testament to their lasting presence as a successful business through many high and low economic times. 

This is the sign for Sowell Beer & Liquor Store. As with Womack I am not quite sure if this place is still in business, but the sign is still there!

I plan to continue to search these business signs out and keep shooting them.

This is the sign for Sunshine Laundry Cleaning. This place is still in business and actually just moved across the street into a brand new building. The one thing they didn’t replace? Their signature original vintage sign.

This is a series that I’m working on.  Searching out and finding all the old vintage signs through the North Dallas area.  It is amazing that some businesses still use their original signage!

This is another lovely structure that is my work neighborhood. This is a beautiful southern style mansion that serves as a boutique hotel in the Uptown area of Dallas, Texas. I walk by this quaint little hotel almost on a daily basis. It certainly does have an antique southern flare to it and I just love it.

I work near the Crescent Court in Dallas, Texas. It is a very old world, kind of gothic inspired structure. It is somewhat of a historic and well-known hotel which is celebrating it’s 25th anniversary. It is a gorgeous building. I am sure there is no shortage of film and photography of this great piece of architecture. I’ll happily add mine to the list!

My mother and I were driving home from my Aunt’s house when I spotted this life sized bird mobile sculpture placed randomly in this open lot. I think the city of Dallas has done a lot to place art in unexpected places. I liked this mobile sculpture and snapped a shot of it looking straight up.

White Rock Lake is very popular lake here in Dallas, TX. You’ll see a lot of joggers, walkers, cyclists, picnic-ers, fishers, everyone! I even think high-school rowing teams practice here. I don’t think this particular rower was in high-school. He was just a lone rower getting in some exercise, keeping his skills up to par and just enjoying the weather. Taken on my iPhone and then further manipulated with a few of my many Photo Apps.

3. Format 126 Photo App using the ColorPlus filter and vignette

This Rose Window is one of many beautiful stained glass windows in the Cathedral de Guadalupe in downtown Dallas, TX. At over 100 years old, this Cathedral is truly a piece of history in Dallas. My father actually played the organ for Sunday masses at the Cathedral. I was in this church with him every Sunday as a little girl. I took this shot back in high school. I just love the deep contrast of this image.
