So many images are presented landscape that when you toss a portrait-orientated one in there it really stands out — neat.

jon:

we got a new car for taking trips in. just saying.

kelli tried an expresso from the pearl cup and said the ratio of milk to coffee was off in favor of milk by like 2:1. they were very nice tho. i got some cosmic cafe into my visit as well. there’s nothing quite like that place anywhere i’ve found. did you wonder around the new arts district while at the nasher? there were like 3 new giant buildings down there since the last time i was in town. wild. i love your shots around the cities less polished side. we rode bikes from my mom’s to the new katy trail and back and it was impressive the diversity of what we saw. katy trail is brand new and basically glitters, my mom’s area is very old school oak cliff nice, and between the two we saw so much that reminds me of your dallas posts. some stuff utterly endearing and some kinda depressing in context. but i’m rambling. i mostly just wanted to say how much i liked that train tracks at sunset shot. the light on the tracks is rather awesome; it looks like a long exposure of car lights on a curvy road.

Nik:

Wow Daniel, major props for biking through Dallas in the winter. I’m guessing people looked at you guys with confusion?

I like milky coffee, so I have no complaints for Pearl. But it was milky.
