A few weekends ago a group of Dallas female photographers decided to have a little meetup/photowalk. This time I had enough time to make reservations and join the group. I’ve never been downtown Fort Worth so I was careful of where I wanted to stay. Of course I knew where we were going to meet so that help a lot. Lucky for me I was able to stay at the Hilton Fort Worth Hotel (former Hotel Texas). A little history: President John F. Kennedy and the First Lady stayed at the hotel 21 November 1963. The next morning on 22 November 1963 after giving the final formal speech of his life in the Hotel’s Crystal Ballroom and greeting thousands of spectators who had braved both rain and the early morning hour to see him in front of the hotel, the President’s motorcade departed, taking with it the final moments of a more innocent America.
Of course this weekend was probably the hottest of the year! Friday was hot but Saturday was 104 without the heat index. The Friday I got there I walked to Fort Worth Water Gardens. Pretty cool and crazy to have in the middle of the city there was a huge water garden. It did cool me off a little.
Even though Saturday was SUPER HOT the heat didn’t dampen our day. No we didn’t stay outside and take photographs but we did go to the art district and enjoyed the museums of Fort Worth. After exploring the museums we had a great lunch with some incredible fellowship. The museums we visited are: Fort Worth Museum Science and History, National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame, and the Amon Carter Museum.
Here are some photographs of my weekend. I carried very light with my Fujifilm X-Pro2 and the Fujinon Super EBC XF 27mm f/2.8 lens.
HAPPY SHOOTING!! 🙂 🙂
