Today’s photos are my favorite so far. I was really excited about these when I saw their prints at the photo store. I go to Photographique in Deep Ellum in Dallas to buy and develop my film, I scan them myself. This time I focused on elements and people of the neighborhood that represented the change instead of any random thing I found interesting.

Some of the things and people I captured this time really reflect what life in Old East Dallas is like. There is an interesting mix of old and new all around the neighborhood. I especially enjoyed photographing the people I met, they were all very kind and open to me photographing them which I really appreciate.
