I can't think of anywhere interesting to photograph in DFW.  Well, more like Fort Worth and Arlington.

I want to take pictures of abandoned buildings, but I don't know how accessible or safe they are.
I've already taken pictures of various bridges around Fort Worth as well as the train station downtown.

Any ideas?

 There are a couple mills downtown that someone has turned into condos/apartments. One is called 'The Beauty Mill' and I'm not sure about the other ones. This would be a fabulous place to take various photographs!

American Beauty Mill is very photogenic, but I can't remember how to get there.  Southside on Lamar just south of downtown is a beautiful work of renovation but it's hard to get past security.  Go when there's an art show or something going on and they'll usually let you slip past if you look like you fit in.

The building I live in is an UNrenovated 1886 cotton gin warehouse.  I rent a photography/art studio (basically just a big room) that I live in too because I'm poor.  The whole building is rented out by dancers, photographers, musicians (me), painters, sculptors, etc.  www.leroyroper.com  He lives/works there.  Just an example.  Anyway, the whole building is free reign for whoever works there, no silly rules about not painting the walls in the hallway or putting Christmas lights on the patio.  There's a huge working freight elevator.  I promise if you come here with a camera you will be amazed.

pm me or send me an email and I'll let you in one day if you want.  Oh, it's in Deep Ellum by the way, across Elm St. from The Door and behind the Bank of America drivethrough.
