Sunrise at Port Isabel Lighthouse – Port Isabel lighthouse was built in 1852 for the sea captains to help them navigate the Texas coastal waters. While this lighthouse is no long needed as technology improve navigation it sit as a reminder of the past and a historical landmark for the city. Now the lighthouse acts as a museum with its reconstructed lighthouse keeper’s cottage which sit below. The Port Isabel’s 72-foot lighthouse is open to the public where you can the winding stairs case and enter the outside area where you can take in the view. From this site you can see the Port Isabel and beyond along with South Padre Island with the Queen Isabella Causeway in view and the coastal beach. Port Isabel is located in south Texas or as the locals call it the valley which stands for the Texas Rio Grande Valley. We loved this capture of this wonderful Port Isabel lighthouse right before the sun came up with these wonderful pastel color in the sky showing the Queen Isabella Causeway along with the down town historic district. This is a historic site and located across the street is a museum with the past history of the island. The Port Isabel Lighthouse is the last light house that is still open to the public. Port Isabel has a lot to offer for tourist, and locals from the beach, to some wonderful restaurant with great fresh seafood to all kinds of activities for all ages.
Flying Pegasus and Reunion Tower BW- We captured these two iconic landmark features of downtown Dallas the Flying Pegasus and Reunion Tower in black and white. The Flying Pegasus sit on top of a oil derick in front of the Omni hotel in downtown Dallas. This Pegasus had been on top of the Magnolia Hotel for more than half of a century till it was so rusted and damaged that it had to be taken down. The city of Dallas replace it with a new pegasus on top of the building for a cost of around 600,000. The orginal pegaus sat in a warehouse for years until a group of nostagic people came together and started the process of bringing it back to life, this city of dallas artistans came together and started to help bring it back. It was no small feat as no one seem to know where it was at first. Finally the orginal pegasus was found and then it needed a home and it was placed on an oil derrick in front of the Omni Hotel in downtown Dallas. From this location you can see two landmark for the city of Dallas with the Flying Pegasus and the Reunion Tower in view.
