Old South Church, Boston

I hardly ever see pictures of this church except from the finish line angle during Marathon Monday. I suppose when you have to compete with the Hancock Building, Trinity Church, and the Boston Public Library all within spitting distance, you occasionally get ignored. Fun facts, the congregation, not the building, was assembled in 1669 and had such honorable congregants as Ben Franklin, Mary Chilton, and William Dawes (Paul Revere’s lesser-known night-riding presumably hell-raising homie).  The building pictured above was finished in 1875 and, as churches go, looks pretty sweet. You can read all about it here and here.

Dallas – Spring

Ah, springtime in Dallas. One day it is 89 degrees and the next it is 32. Naturally, we arrived on one of the coldest April weekends Dallas has seen in quite some time.  But, being people who aren’t easily daunted (one must never be daunted) we did our best to make the weekend successful – and by successful, I mean that we got re-acquainted with our favorite bartenders and ate a lot of food and bitched about how cold it was.

My office for four days.

Once the chill of the weekend had passed I was able to get quite a bit of work done just west of Downtown Dallas in the Trinity River Reservation as well as one day shooting a parking garage downtown – I chose to work down near the river because now that the flood waters have receded and the grasses mowed it is a great place to search out weird wading birds and be mostly alone in a metro area that appears to be trying for an urban sprawl record. As is usually the case I worked alone except for the day shooting the parking garage with my photo partner, Luci.

Below are a few of the keepers that I made  – keep in mind that in the four days I spent down there I walked over 40 miles and took 500+ photos, most of which were absolute and complete shit. However, any day making crap photos out in the wide open spaces is better than, well, damn near everything. Enjoy!
