So, this April, i went on a mini vacation to Dallas/Ft. Worth! I was so excited And I loved it! Dallas is the Modern city i imagined with an amazing skyline! Lots of history to it and local flavors. Dallas had a lot to offer and i wish i had more time in it! I was so glad i had gotten to Dallas because it had been on my list for a while. It was well worth it to go! When i drove up to Ft. Worth, i wasn't expecting much, Just another American city, maybe even a little below average. To My surprise, It is a beautiful architecturally preserved city with some stunning pieces (I wish i took more photos and had more time of Ft. Worth!) and lots of little shops that would make you think you're in a small town where everyone knows everyone. Anyway, Here it is, enjoy Dallas and Ft. Worth :)

PS: if I uploaded too many photos and red x's appear im really sorry!
on a side not, i feel like once i uploaded these photos up on the internet, they lost their quality, so im really sorry for that too!

1.Thumbs up!


2.Here's (a blurry pic of) what i believe is Huntington,WV, not sure though


3.Lexington


4.Little Rock


5.Nashville(photo actually taken on the way back, but i think this is where it fits!)


6.Dallas!!!


7.


8.


9.


10.


11.


12.


13.




















































































































































































Ok, so these photos didn't exactly turn out so well, but i took them from a lounge on top of the Sheraton. Lots of light up there and the windows have a railing-ish thing infront of them so its tricky to get good night shots from up there!







The next morning...











Rockin' the Mollet In Dallas












(yes, i was on a tour bus!)




























A stray cat on the sidewalk




Ft. Worth!!!













































And back to Dallas for sleep, but before that....




















hope you enjoyed! :cheers:

Very interesting, thanks for posting. I was wondering how Dallas looked. It looks almost abandoned, where are all the people? Was it extremely hot so everyone stayed inside?

Very excellent Dallas' pictures! The first time I heard about that city was throu' tv serie called "Dallas" when I was a boy in the 80s. So Dallas for me is the "JR Ewing city". I liked its buildings of glass and a building facade with angels playing trompets. Also it seems to me seeing a pyramidal form building behind others???
Congratulations!!

Well, many american cities are like this, especially in the sunbelt where most of the people are in the suburbs with their cars and big yards. But to be fair, it was a weekend when i took these photos and i also didn't try to take any photos of people. There were lots of people at Dealy plaza, near the mall, and near the Bank of America area where all the cool new restaruants and stores are. :)

oh! my english is a desaster. About a pyramidal shape building: I'm sure there's one in Dallas. One of your pictures I could see part of one behind another building. or I'm wrong??perhaps it was the roof another highrise. Excuse my english perhaps I didn't use the right words,verbs,etc.

Beautiful buildings! But where are all the people!!! The city looks empty and abandoned. I pictured Dallas's downtown to have way more life and activity.
