Tarrant County Courthouse – Fort Worth, Texas

The old Tarrant County Courthouse

My job as an attorney took me to many of the courthouses throughout Texas. The architecture found in those buildings is impressive. These are pictures I took with my cell phone inside the old Tarrant County Courthouse in Fort Worth, Texas.

Vacations in Playa del Carmen

During my time as an attornery I was  fortunate to work for a firm that treated its employees well. Each year for five or so years before the Covid pandemic, the firm took its employees to Playa del Carmen, Mexico for a vacation. Each of those trips was a relaxing, fun-filled adventure. Below are images taken of some of those vacations. Many are from The Reef resort, where we stayed on one of those trips.

Dairy Queen of Seven Points’ 11th Annual Classic Car Show

Classic car show 2013 - image 6

For many years, one of the local Dairy Queens (this one in Seven Points, Texas) sponsored an annual classic car show. The show featured in this poast was on October 19, 2013, which was a beautiful, clear and sunny day. These are my photos of some of the fabulous classic cars that were on display. The pictures were taken with a Motorola Droid Razr (2) cellphone. Their quality both surprised and pleased me. The images are pretty much “as taken”: I only edited them in Google Plus with “pop” and “structure +” adjustments. Those brought out the correct colors and cleaned up the sharpness/detail.
