Big Brother is Watching You | Dallas, Texas

Take a pleasant stroll through the gardens of Dallas’s five-star Joule Hotel, and you will quickly perambulate upon a very odd sight: a 30-foot-tall eyeball that is just sort of hanging out. It might look like it just popped out of the ocular socket of a colossus the size of the Burj Khalifa, but in actuality, it’s a sculpture, created by Chicago-based multimedia artist Tony Tasset.

It was raining lightly, I whizzed around the district, finding the empty spot near the valet parking.  I left it there with the hazard lights on.  I hurried over the street. I was amazed how huge the Eye was in the middle of the park between the buildings.  Too bad there was a fence protecting the Eye.

I went back to my car, the valet guy came, not realizing that I didn’t hear him.  He grabbed me by the arm and I think he raised his voice.  I grabbed his hand off my arm.  I gestured that I was not hearing him, and also signed.  He realized it and became calm.  He smiled slowly and asked me if I got everything okay.  I nodded with a 100 watts smile back at him.  We waved at each other and I zoomed off to hunt more of the attractions in Dallas.

By the way, it’s located at 1607 Main Street in Dallas Arts District.

About christy

I'm a deaf road travel photographer. I love creating visual eye candy, be it my digital artwork or photography. More often than not, it turns out to be a combination of both. All I need is a map, a camera, and seeking new adventures on wheels full time. Hailed from the Texas-born Baton Rouge, Louisiana, my photography was always my hobby, off and on, when time permitted. I had itched for a big change. I bought my first DSLR camera, I found myself falling back into photography again, and I've decided to pursue it full-time. I am specializing in landscapes however my interests are in the horizon into whatever catches my eye, I shoot.
