It’s been over seven months we moved from Dubai to Dallas/Fort Worth area and we always laugh when people, especially when we are out of Dallas, ask us where are we visiting from – because it’s obvious, once we say a word, we are not born around here :). We look at each other, smile, and start the story: we visit from Dallas, but are from Denmark, respectively Romania, and we moved here from Dubai, where we lived for seven years. It’s a good story, and we will probably keep telling it as long as people ask us where we are from :). Usually people around here think Dubai is so amazing and we are kind of downgrading by moving to Dallas, but we always make sure they hear from us how much we love this place. ❤

Today we went to visit The Amon Carter Museum of American Art and I have to say this will be high on the list of my favorite museums around the world. I don’t know if this is because we come from Europe, but there is something romantic about about all the American West visuals. From a photographer point of view, I learnt so many lessons today, not only from Laura Wilson photography exhibition “That Day” but from the use of light, composition and emotions in paintings (I know, from every piece of art one can learn this, but there is something about these paintings that resonate in a special way with my Spirit).

After the Museum we stopped by the Stock Yards, for more encounters with some good food, great music and crowds and zen animals.

Both must see if you are around Dallas / Fort Worth metropolitan area. And no, this will not become a travel blog, but I really wanted to share these thoughts this time :). And finally the photos, made with Fujifilm X-T1, 56mm.

I love horses but I’m slightly afraid of them. I plan to fix this while I’m in Texas.
