On this walk, I found a few really good gentrification scenes I captured. I also made some photos just for me, things I thought were interesting in Old East Dallas. While shooting this roll I tripped and fell and broke my camera. It was so frustrating, I need to replace the waist-level viewfinder which cost over $250. Thankfully though, non of my photos were ruined, I was so happy about that because I really like today’s set a lot.

This photo is pretty funny. I generally like to find some humor in almost every situation. No, what is happening here is not funny. But I do think these three porta-potties with different colors and side by side in a neighborhood is a funny sight.

I made this photo because of the empty grassy lot. Lots like this were once everywhere in this area of Dallas. Now they are very scarce and I’m sure soon this one is going to have some giant apartment building or row off townhouses build on it.

A random but interesting trailer, not really related to my project but it was in the neighborhood and I thought it was cool looking.
