I'm in Dallas because Jimmy's here for a conference. That means that I'm on my own all day, which I'm comfortable doing and enjoy the time to myself. But being in a strange city and female, obviously, I have to take precautions. I'm always aware of my surroundings and try not to draw any attention to myself. This poses a conflict for me though. Because, as I'm sure anyone who's visited my blog even just once can gather, I love to take photos. And I usually don't just point and click - i'll compose a shot and take several photos of a particular subject fussing with aperature/depth of field/lighting. Well, there's no better neon arrow pointing at you that says "tourist" than a woman alone with a big camera taking multiple photos of typical tourist attractions. So, that leaves me with only a couple of options: be stealth and fast, or miss the shot.Pioneer Plaza. Re-creation of bighorn steer cattle drive in bronze.
