Flourish The Past

Granbury, Texas

My Mother and I were actually scouting around the area to take pictures of old or abandoned vehicles and found this one right away!

Heading West on East State Loop 426 from Highway 377, you cross an interesting bridge over Lake Granbury with a beautiful view of the lake and Victorian homes along the way.  

On the right, deep in the trees is a sort of country-like trinket and antique shopping spot.  I pulled in, actually, to answer my cell phone; then looked up as Mom was pointing at this ravishing foliage-embellished truck!

How lucky can one get?

Old Smoky  

McKinney Main Street ~ Texas ~  Historic Downtown

1934 Dodge Sedan

McKinney Main Street is part of a national program designed to revitalize historic commercial areas.

This downtown square is one of the ever so often busiest I have ever seen ~ anywhere!  You name it?  They got it!  New mixed in with the old, arts, entertainment, fine & casual restaurants, boutiques, western stores, festivals, benefit runs, etc.  

McKinney has it together for sure!

I was volunteering to help a friend during the city's 2011 October Fall Event at his Pumpkin Patch booth!   We both had our cameras and took breaks to snap some shots from time to time.  I kept thinking to myself:  "I wish I could see an old car or truck or even a glamorous sport car pull up somewhere."  True story!  Not long before my shift was just about up and as the sun decided to make it's way behind the buildings, here comes this outstanding 1934 Dodge Sedan pulling right up to my nose!  The gentleman and his partner glided across the parking lot and left me standing with my mouth gaping!  Michael and I were like kids in a candy store snapping away with our cameras!

We sold lots of pumpkins and other fall items, too!  Well, we were the only ones who the city invited to set up!

Lincoln Park

Pilot Point, Texas

Lake Ray Roberts

I keep my eyes peeled for old vintage cars and trucks while traveling the countryside.  A taste of history is left behind in hidden yards, behind old barns and yes, junk yards!

While driving around shooting photos of bluebonnets around Lake Ray Roberts and the Texas countryside I found this old vintage Lincoln resting near the railroad track.  I didn’t see it at first since I was watching the train pass and was thrilled to turn my head at what I call “the find for the day”!

Tin For Sale

Canton, Texas

Just on the southwest side of Interstate 20, before North Trade Days Boulevard, 
( main street for Canton Trade Days "First Monday" )
sits a small quaint Canton Consignment shopping area.  I always stop and 
get my little bottom out to look around at all the interesting trinkets and such
for sale or display!
I fell in love with this old Vintage International Truck and couldn't wait to play
with the photo!  Hope you like it!

Leaving Soon

1954 Dodge Fire Truck ~ Grapevine, Texas 2014

Apparently this antique beauty came to Grapevine from New Boston, Illinois.
Although retired as a working truck, it has been operable for many years.
The note in the window states it will be "leaving soon" where it will fine a new
permanent home:
Texas Fire Museum

Arlington, Texas

This neon-banana-yellow neon Dodge truck had several eye-catching aspects to photograph.  I love how the sun splashed a hint of light to add some life to it.  

I think the Dodge is my favorite truck.

A Bicycle Built For News

Dallas Morning News ~ Plano, Texas

On a field trip with "Believe & Achieve", a Day Care Program For Adults With Special Needs, we spent the better part of the morning on a very educational tour of the Dallas Morning News plant. Yes, I learned a lot!  Didn't find out who really shot JFK, though.

I volunteer in many aspects for this group and encourage each client to learn, to believe and to achieve.  Although they keep me quite busy with questions and interests, I found myself amused with the facility's bicycles!

Couldn't help myself, had to take a picture of one!

Just outside the entry door of Sneaky Pete's, you can always find Boy Toy Treasures parked by the Valet service while the patrons enjoy boating, swimming, volleyball, delicious food and live entertainment - right on the lake!

Make The Scene

Irving, Texas

On a night out for a sort of High School reunion of friends - including about 4 schools, this bird screamed at me:  

Take My Picture!

So I did!

Even Now I Wait

Granbury, Texas

Here is another shot I took of the gracefully aged truck outside the trinket shop.  

Oh the stories I bet it could tell.  It gave me a feeling that he has always lived right there!

Shelter From The Briny Storm

Snuggled amid the waves of shore

My life is at peace

I am never bored

My ship is my home

It’s here for keeps

Feel free to come roam with me

Rough Mornings

Whitewright, Texas

Miles outside the little town of Whitewright, rests this mellowed old car.  I admired it from afar for season after season on a friend's 60-acre homestead.  Finally, one cold morning I walked across the field and took the picture just as the early morning sun began to luster the moment.  I wonder if it still runs!
