It was a bright, and beautiful winter day on Saturday.  If you missed the White Rock Local Market’s 3rd annual Holiday Market on Saturday December 10th you will have to wait for next March for another market because its is only open March through December.

Thom Powell Environmental Architect

By Kristy Alpert    

Although the average Dallas citizen may not personally know Thom Powell, chances are his work has impacted his or her life. This 49-year-old architect has been behind the scenes of some of the biggest, culturally-impacting projects to grace Dallas’ city limits, most notably the Annette Strauss Artist Square, 1407 Main Street (winner of the 2009 Downtown Association award), and the Perot Museum of Nature and Science where he currently serves as the sustainability consultant.

Celebrate the holidays in nature. See thousands of beautiful lights and decorations on nature trails at the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary’s Holiday Trail of Lights in McKinney.

 When Fort Worth photographer Karl Thibodeaux is out taking pictures of a street scene, he doesn’t mind when a weed gets in the lens. Conversely, when he’s shooting a picture of a tree and a powerline jutts in the frame, it doesn’t bother him.
