A Black and White Dallas Christmas with an Emphasis on Blight and Abandonment

Tuesday, December 27th, 2011

Back in Dallas for Christmas, I enjoyed the company of family, my newish wife, 9 cats, two raccoons, seldom seen friends, and the dark knight Stachybotrys Chartarum.

I desired to photograph mostly abandoned, ugly, or old things. So that’s what I did:
