Thanks, drowningman. But, Big D is hardly emply. Latest population estimates put the city population at 1.3 million. Many more, of course, in the suburbs.

You're an incredible photographer wow!

I love Dallas' buildings. Just wish there was more street life there.

these colors look great! i love flying into the dallas airport and seeing just a huge looming crowd of buildings way off in the distance. i think you're a great photographer and you should do another series of dallas street shots.

Nice photos. Dallas does lack street life probably because there are so many surface parking lots.

I agree that Dallas somewhat lacks ' soul', whatever that is, but still it's a beautiful place with fantastic, exciting new architecture. Nice crisp lines everywhere and lots of breathing space. It makes me realise what a dump Britain is, it all needs demolishing and re- building. People, check out the skyline of Perth, West Australia from Kings Park, it's one of the most exciting and stimluating skylines you'll ever see!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice pictures of Dallas. BTW, are there any plans to urbanize the neighborhoods outside of downtown?

Awesome photos! Can't wait to see how the city has urbanized in 10-20 years from now.
