Turtle Creek in Dallas

I went up to Dallas for the night because my sister was having her first baby. I got to see her for a few minutes before she had to do the feeding, farm style… so I left to go to Turtle Creek to take few shots at sunset after a jog.

This is where I used to go run all the time when I went to SMU, just down the road.

Golden Dallas

After I came out of Northpark Mall, there was a nice sunset behind these buildings, so I grabbed a quick shot:

The international terminal at DFW

The new international terminal at DFW is very nice – filled with all sorts of shops and high-end restaurants. They also had this very interesting modern sculpture of a downtown abstract I posted below.

Monty and I waited as long as we could to get on the plane, but we never saw Will until after we got on the plane, just before roll back. It seems he transposed the 5:50 departure to 5:05. This would be a cute numerical mistake if it was not for his position as the Chief Financial Officer of the company.

My brother’s house of macabre but humorously posed dead animals

So my brother in Dallas is a big hunter. He goes on African safaris all the time and is always looking to bag something exotic, or simply something that would look funny when stuffed, mounted, and placed inconspicuously in his house.

First, you will see a picture of him with a giraffe that he killed then had stuffed and put in his foyer to welcome guests. During Christmas, he put a santa hat on top to make it look more festive for the season. He claimed that this giraffe was running around Africa eating children and spreading AIDS, so he had no choice but to shoot it.

The second picture is of a hippo he killed and had converted into a coffee table. He had the taxidermist embed a permanent smile on the hippo, so that guests would be assured that the hippo is happy to be holding their after-dinner cognacs.
