Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Letters C or D

The letters C or D…this is what Cee wants pictures of this week.

C = Cowboy

Awhile back we were visiting family in Snyder Texas. I found this cool piece of metal art at the local college. It actually represents their mascot – The Westerners. However, I’ve chosen to call him a cowboy…for this challenge!Screen Shot 2017-03-15 at 2.19.56 PM

365 Days of photos – Day 364

In April 2000 a tornado hit downtown Fort Worth and the near west side of downtown.

These four metal beams were once supports for a billboard. But Mother Nature bent them useless.DSC_0251

Instead of tearing them down, it was decided to include them in the design of a new post office.DSC_0265

I really like the connection of the bent steel and the mail carrier motto….”Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stay thecourier from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”

 

 

365 Days of Photos – Day 274

Yesterday I posted photos of the court house in Waxahachie Texas. Tonight I am posting photos of the architectural details of the building. I found these faces quite remarkable.

The terra cotta faces were created at Theodore Beilharz’s stone yard in Dallas Texas. The master┬ástone carver was Harry Herley. The Ellis county Court House located in Waxahachie Texas was built in 1895.
