Virginia Hills

There really is a reason Heidi and I love eastern Tennessee. Within minutes of our home in Bristol, we could drive to places like the following and go for long walks without dying from a heat stroke. Long walks in Texas don’t exist in June, unless they are at 4 a.m. So for the sake of sanity, here are some shots from one of our walks, taken in May of 2015.





 

Trains in Blue

I took my boys to TrainTopia here in Frisco, which is a miniature train museum. I thought it was a great opportunity to combine two hobbies, photography and trains. The best pictures were those that had the night lighting, giving everything the blue hue.

The layout cost about $1 million to build, and was done so by an oil man, Steve Sanders in his North Dallas home. It was recently moved to Frisco for the museum. It has quite a story and you can read more about it here.









 

En Fuego Cigars

I was down on the Frisco Square again this morning was surprised by all the booths set up for the July 4th celebration. I had to park in the parking garage behind the library, and make my way to the square since it was all blocked off. While in the square, I stopped by one of my favorite stores, En Fuego Cigars since there was no one out front. By closing off the square to traffic, business was dead. So here are some photos in honor of the store, since none of the regular customers can park close enough to visit. If you are in need of a fine cigar, stop by En Fuego.
