Met up Saturday morning with the photo club from work at the Flying Saucer in Sundance Square. We were tasked with a photo scavenger hunt and given two hours to complete the challenge. After a quick meet and greet in front of the Saucer we split into smaller groups and headed out to see what looked good from behind the lens.
Immediately after departing for the shoot we were confronted with Sundance Square security informing us that we were not allowed to take pictures of any of the buildings in Sundance for security reasons. After attempting to explain that attempting to enforce this rule is illegal we had to request the security officer call Ft. Worth police for a legal interpretation. He came back shortly telling us we were ok to photograph the city.
The morning sky was covered with a thin layer of clouds giving ample light but removing some of the highlights and reflections from the buildings. Unfortunately it also presented a very boring sky as there wasn’t much detail to capture in the clouds. Thankfully they only lasted for the first half of our walk.
We learned at the beginning of our walk that the Bass Hall offers free tours that begin every Saturday morning at 10:30. We put that information in our back pocket and decided we would do the tour if time permitted.
We made it back just a few minutes late for the tour but caught up with the group. It was very informative and I feel that I got at least a couple of decent photos out of the experience. I would like to go back soon and see if my eye sees anything different.
