End of an Era – 9

Well, I couldn’t resist.

Last Saturday I went by the remains of Collin Creek Mall again. There is still a lot of demo to be done. I went early to catch the sunrise.

The Sears store is mostly gone. There are a few more piles of rubble here and there with several rows of concrete waiting to be recycled.

One of the upper floors has a bunch of tires laying there. Wonder if they were leftover from Sears?

Maybe I “WILL” take a few more shots of the demo. It helps me see the photo instead of a snapshot.

SEArS. The letters on the Sears end of the mall have been hanging for a while before the mall actually closed. I stopped by when you could still go inside the mall and could not resist to shoot the sign.

It wont be dangling much longer as the demo crew has started on that section of the mall.

Its kind of funny the barricade is still there. We sure don’t want that letter to fall on anyone!

City Sky

Living in the city has it’s advantages, except for traffic, and skylines among a few other things.

I have to be selective when I take pictures of a nice sunrise or sunset to avoid all the other stuff around. It takes about an hour to drive somewhere else to see the horizon.

But sometimes…

Zebadiah Duck – Day 3

30 – 30 – 1 Project Day 3

Sunrise – Zebadiah is an early riser like me. Every time I go to get him he is awake. I’m not sure if he ever really sleeps.

Today he wanted to see the sunrise. I’ts kinda hard to see the actual sunrise over the horizon since we live in the city. Someday Zeb will venture out and be able to see the sun rising over the land darkened by the nightfall.

This is another crisp spring morning in Texas. Other birds are chirping away today. Cardinals, Blue Jays, Carolina Chickadees, and many others fill the morning air. Zeb just quietly sits and takes in the beauty of the sunrise.

It’s hard to tell when a rubber duck gets excited, but Zeb thought he saw a relative fly by!
