After living in Los Angeles for so long it's easy to take for granted the endless opportunities for all types of photography. There's literally nothing you can't find, you will have to travel for it, but it's there. Moving to a new city like Dallas, it's also easy to think compared to LA, there's nothing of interest to shoot. At least that's what my brain keeps chiming off. I've come to realize that it doesn't matter where you live, you can always find something of interest to shoot.
There are people I follow on Instagram who live in small town USA and their images never cease to amaze me. Subject matter is endless regardless where you live. And frankly, I'm learning to see other places other than huge sky-scrappers and endless vistas. This country is made up of small towns, and every one has a personality of its own.
So I am challenging myself to explore more, seek out the small treasures that are all around me, see it in a different way and capture the personality that presents itself in whatever form that may be. I love old abandoned buildings, small town main streets, empty fields with a small house sitting under a hundred year old oak.
The images I'm posting here are from a small area near Dallas called the Bishop Arts District. It's made of up small shops, places to grab a bite, lots of art and great little bands playing all the time. It was nice to unplug and wonder around on a Sunday afternoon.
