Dallas, TX ~ I’ll preface this post with a reminder that I am an amateur photographer, which means that I still don’t know what half of the functions on my camera do. When we entered the art display (parking garage) we were instructed to turn off the flash for best quality photos.

The final picture in this set is of the beautiful Hotel Emma (a converted 19th century brewery), also located near by.
