Living in Old East Dallas provides lots of interesting sights, sounds and situations!
Since 1999, it's been home.
There are many old, interesting, turn-of-the last century homes that double as "money pits" to those who purchase them. At the same time, remodeling these homes has played a part in the renewal of this inner city neighborhood. Still, the area is populated by low-income working families, many homeless persons and lots of renters who make their homes in under-serviced, often substandard rental properties.
The community is extremely diverse in every respect--ethnically, racially, economically, educationally, religiously.
I shot these photos some time ago, and ran across them while cleaning out other old photographs. Posted here with love, respect and continuing amazement, as well as a healthy sense of mystery and wonder.
