    I'm going to Texas next week, specifically the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
    Any good places I need to check out to get some cool pics?

    I'll probably get more good pics in my first 5 minutes in Texas than you get in
    5 years in the streets of New York and Gay Paree.

    Dallas area is full of great photo ops.

    The Hyatt hotel, the one with the ball on the top of it.
    Fort Worth Stockyard.
    Texas State Fair and the Cotton Bowl
    The great looking women at lunch time downtown Dallas
    Southfork, the scene of the old soap opera TV show Dallas
    Texas Stadium
    Trinity River bed shot at sunrise
    the various lakes around the area with either boating or sunrise shots.

    Enjoy.

    Try the State Fair of Texas, Dallas or Ft. Worth zoos, botanical
    gardens both Ft. Worth and Dallas.

    Deep Elum at night.

    Many lakes in the area.

    Do both Ft. Worth and Dallas have zoos? Which is better?

    Also, what or where is "Deep Elum?"

    Believe it or not, being an Architect and actually having a Parisian
    Architect for a friend, whom I meet for lunch at the Raspil Vert everytime I
    go, is the primary reason for travel. Photography while part of the fun, is
    not the only reason for travel. I'd rather travel and not photograph than
    photograph and not travel. Besides, I'll concede you're just such a super
    photographer, but so what? I'm living a life that someone like you can only
    dream about. You are not a Professional Photographer, your "career" as a
    free-lance is going no where. And you're still living at home with your
    Mother and shooting high school cheer leaders. Your life is totally
    pathetic.

    Dallas has the better zoo.. The Ft. Worth zoo is also excellent but
    the Dallas zoo is a little more open.

    Deep Elum is the entertainment district located in west dallas near
    downtown. Just ask anybody for directions from your location.. You'll
    meet some very interesting people there..

    However if I recall you can't drive through after 10:00pm. You'll have
    to park and walk..

    I just assumed that you were another dilettante dentist with a Leica. Now
    we know you're just another dilettante architect with a camera.

    I can't see the OP, but one thing I thought would be cool to photograph
    is near the Dallas Convention Centre there are some full scale horned
    cattle statues as if on a cattle drive.... in the right light, and if
    not too many people are around it could work.

    There are a few unusual buildings in downtown Dallas, as well of course
    as the book reposistory ... Dealey Plaza. Not sure what to photograph
    and theres's always somebody on the grassy knoll.

    Downtown Ft. Worth has a folksy charm, but it's gone commercial.
    The stockyards in Ft. Worth (not my cuppa, but...).

    ....

    Humility is often lacking in those who desire to have everyone else think
    they are one half as good as they think they are. Wonder what Leica toting
    architect fits this description? Wonder who is in a position to decide who
    is living what kind of a life and who dreams about a lifestyle. By the way,
    if you ever can drag your self away from your Parisian architect buddies,
    maybe we can meet up on one of my trips to Europe. You can catch me in
    November in Bucharest and Sighisoara but then again, this is the former
    Eastern European zone and the wine list is short, the hotels are not in the
    Michelin guide and you would not feel at home there.

    Oh please, get a grip on reality, and quit sounding like the loser you are.
    As for Eastern Europe, I had some friends that went last spring by rail, but
    I couldn't get enthused about it, and so passed. And what makes you think
    you're half as interesting, as you think you are, that I would want to meet
    up with you? Christ, you don't even have anything interesting to say about
    photography. But, if you're in NYC on Nov 1 for Photo Expo, stop by Leica @
    5:00 PM when we are meeting to go to Shutters for dinner. You can be the non
    Leica Shooter without a clue. As for travel, I hope to catch the Buenos
    Aires Tango Festival Internacional next spring (March '04). Are you at all
    familiar with the Milongas of Buenos Aires? Believe me, you'll have more fun
    in South America than Eastern Europe.

    I rarely dream of meeting other architects in Gay Paree, let alone having lunch
    with them. But whatever trips your trigger.....

    I was hangin with Tiger Woods last week. Top that!

    Anyone who attends meetings and dinners with people who use the same kind of
    camera as he does obviously believes that the camera is some sort of status
    symbol. I think it's called "male jewelry" in that case, isn't it? Let me
    guess, you also have a Rolex and a vehicle that would fit that profile as
    well, right? I have no problem with that, I collect old cameras I pick up
    at yard sales and flea markets, but I don't think it makes me better than
    anyone else! Does owning Leicas make you a better person or just one with
    more disposable income?


    are.

    Suppose we could rent out a hall----invite Leicaddict and T.P.? Nah, their
    egos would take a hall bigger than NYC.

    A REAL Parisian Architect (with a capital 'A') for a friend?!? I mean,
    a REAL REAL Parisian Architect?! Huh? Really? You're not just pulling
    our leg now are you? You - have - a - real - Parisian - ARCHITECT -
    (opps... only the first letter was supposed to be capitalized. My
    bad...) - for - a - friend?
    Wow! But not only that... lettings us all know that you can actually eat
    LUNCH with him, and at Raspil Vert TOO!!!

    Now THERE is a genuine 100% dyed in the wool simply to die for reason
    to travel to Paris that would make a stone statue wither up in envy...

    (I guess if I only had one friend I'd travel 4,000 miles to have lunch
    with them too.)

    It's funny... the Americans go to Europe and the Europeans come to
    Thailand to get away from them. Especially the French. They don't bother
    to vacation in their own country when there are so many more interesting
    places to see.

    Remember, don't tuck your napkin into your collar during your meal.

    Hey! Let's start a contest. Let's try to guess how many names Glen can
    drop in one single post? Who ever comes closest wins a picture of a
    Leica!!
