My last downtown photo of Dallas went over pretty well, so here is another from a different perspective. This is shot from the south side of Dallas, which is rarely seen since most of the commercial development is immediately to the north side of the city. I see this perspective a lot when driving up from Austin on regular trips up to the city. On the last trip, we were able to have a bit of extra time to go visit some of the Impressionist works at the museum here in downtown. It was nice to make it there after dodging all the modern art that just takes up a lot of space. I’m sure that’s sort of a heretical thing to say, for someone so deep into the digital mediums, but I find most modern art to be inane. Any piece of modern art that requires a douche in a black turtleneck to describe what I am seeing is something that probably simply represents two minutes of my life I will never get back. Anyway, I’m sure some people like it… that’s fine… just not for me.
I’ll be sure to add some of my favorite Impressionist paintings in the next iteration of the “Things That Inspire Me” area of the site!
