The Skydance Bridge and the Devon Energy Tower

I'm showing my work this weekend at the Arts Festival Oklahoma in Oklahoma City. After setting up my booth today I grabbed some dinner and then headed towards downtown to find a good location to shoot the skyline. I admittedly had not prepared like I usually do and was just driving and looking for something. When I spotted the Skydance Bridge I knew what I would be shooting. It is a sculpture on top of a footbridge which goes over Interstate 40 just south of downtown. It is constantly changing colors and I was able to frame the Devon Tower and several other downtown buildings just after sunset. Construction on both of these structures was completed earlier this year. The bridge is made to look like the state bird which is the Scissor-tailed Flycatcher.

Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church

I spent Saturday morning shooting three different churches with some of my friends from the Dallas Camera Club.  These are two of my favorites from the trip which were both shot at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in north Dallas.

Pump Jack and Lightning

Pump Jack and Lightning

After spending some more time editing my images from my trip to New Mexico, I came up with several others that I really like. They were both taken before it became totally dark outside. The bottom image looked much better after I converted to black and white. It didn't capture any lightning but I really liked the sweep of rain in the background. These new images will be added to my web site. Next month I will be showing my work at Midland's Septemberfest. Since it is right in the middle of an oil rich area, I plan to have many of my pump jack images on display.
