I occasionally like to have phun with fotoshop.
I was fascinated by the shadows in this shot. My question is : Are they really telling the police not to park here?
I put this one on my other Tumblr.
Couple of photos from this week. The black and white is the old red courthouse in downtown Dallas. People always take pictures of this building, so here is my attempt at following the herd. The second photo is of a girl talking to her friend between classes at a college.
Selection of diptych studies from class. A rather interesting way to tell stories with photos.

Interesting images are all around me. That is why I try to carry a camera everywhere. Except for bathrooms. I don’t like taking pictures in there.
This statue is near Pearl street. I like it. It’s in a strange location, hear the loading dock of a skyscraper. (It’s in Dallas.)
Something about the horizontal composition appeals to me.
That is my neighbors dog who always has a running commentary while I am in the back yard. It is more of a study, notes for future photos.
I wonder what the dog is really thinking? Probably, wants me to feed him or something like that.
Bob’s Burgers. I like that show.

“The U.S. Simply Doesn’t Have Enough Available Rental Housing, Whether You’re Rich or Poor
Emily Badger. Feb 25, 2013
The Census Bureau says there are about 41 million renter households in the United States, a group making up about 35 percent of the country. And the renter ranks are expected to swell this decade as the housing demand of Baby Boomers and their children starts to converge. Twentysomethings who’ve been living at home during the recession will finally move out to form their own households. Many Baby Boomers, meanwhile, are expected to downsize into smaller rentals units where they won’t have to mow their own lawns.
Housing wonks have projected that we may need to build at least 3 million new rental apartment units in the next 10 years to satisfy all these people. And if you’re a renter just about anywhere in the country, you may already be feeling the crunch: As Cities reported last summer, it’s lately become cheaper to buy a home than to rent one in the vast majority of America’s 100 largest metros.
This is a problem for young professionals and even decently paid ones trying to live close to jobs in expensive cities like New York and San Francisco. But America’s shortage of affordable rental housing trickles down with particularly depressing effects to the extremely low-income.”
