Dallas: Children's Medical Center

After one of our recent projects finished construction I decided to make a visit and snap a few photos of the building exterior.  We designed a color-changing lighting system for the entry canopy.  Although it was an overcast evening I was able to capture a really great night sky.

Dallas: Winspear Opera House

A special Valentine's Day post....
I've found myself running around taking plenty of shots during the day but never trying to capture dusk shots.  I love lighting and photography at sunset can be really beautiful.  With this in mind, I decided to run downtown to the Arts District and snap a few photos of the Winspear Opera House which opened last year.

Irving: Convention Center

Right before the SuperBowl we had som great 70+ degree weather so I ventured up to Irving to check out their new convention center.  It happened to be opening weekend and it was open to the public.  The facility is pretty cool; it's completely clad in copper panels and very geometric.

Dallas: Deep Ellum

For a Saturday in late January, the weather was unseasonably warm - sunny, 70+ degrees and clear skies.  I decided to spend a few hours of my afternoon exploring one of the neighborhoods in East Dallas.   Deep Ellum is/was known for its music - particularly jazz and blues.  In the early 90s the area fell into neglect, with many shops shuttering their windows.  However, it's slowly starting to make a comeback as a fun weekend destination for shopping, dining and entertainment.  The city's DART public train line even extended their line through the neighborhood with sleek new station stops.
