Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Lizzy Mayer

Last summer, I embarked on a greater adventure than ever anticipated. Having arrived in Dallas to visit my sister, I was on a mission to find an antique store. My sister had raved about the unique finds in Fort Worth's oldest neighborhood and I needed to expecience them firsthand. True to form, each shop I explored had a character and allure all its own. One storefront window displayed an archaic grand piano that invited me through the door. Inside were mirrors, books and phonographs, all blanketed with dust. A spiral staircase led me to an attic where the subject of my photo stood before me.

Location: Fort Worth, Texas
