On My Way Home



laruth suggested I do an "On My Way Home" photo display to the commute from office to my home. I gave it a go on July 4th, taking the "back way", which is more rural. I did not capture all the fundamental "suburb-ness" and "mini-mallness" of the commute, of which there is scads, but tried to show the "Texas-ness" instead.

Here is my law office, in a one-story building in Garland, Texas:

I cross the bridge over Duck Creek shortly before I get to work each day. On some days, there are herons. On other days, there are flash floods:

This is Williams Chicken, right next to the Mi Super Mercado in Garland. Williams Chicken serves wonderful fried chicken:

They shot the television show "Dallas" at Southfork Ranch, which is on the way home:

Allen is a tract home suburb filling in its open spaces, but a few such spaces remain:

In the Summer they cut hay with huge machines:

I love the sight of coreopsis (Texas sunflowers) growing amid the cornfields, a five minute drive from my house. In a few years, this will all be office buildings:

We live in a tract home neighborhood in Allen, a town of 50,000 or so, 25 miles north of Dallas. We like our neighborhood, Glendover Park, very much.

This is part of my life. I hope you enjoyed the visit!
