Dallas: Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge

Slowly but surely the new bridge connecting downtown Dallas with West Dallas is becoming a reality.  Years ago the city paid Santiago Calatrava to design 3 bridges to connect downtown Dallas with areas west, spanning over the Trinity River.  The first of those bridges is the Margaret Hunt Hill, a classic Calatrava design.  The majority of the steel suspension cables have been strung, with just a few remaining.  The bridge is slated to open around the end of the summer I think.

Dallas: Fair Park

In the first few months that I lived in Dallas, I took a quick drive over to Fair Park to check it out.  Somehow I managed to miss more than half of the park in my short walk that day... which I realized after reviewing Google Maps.  In any case, I decided to finally make a second trip over to Fair Park and check out the rest of the sights.  Here are a few shots.
