It’s the end of the year, the traditional time for lists! Today I’m posting a list of my top ten favorite images that I’ve posted over the past year — either art or postcards (my favorite photographs of the year will be posted tomorrow). For more info on the images — and to see the post they appeared in — click on the title of the post (sources are generally at the bottom). Most images are larger when clicked — some are quite a bit larger.

“The Dallas Skyline, Vibrant & Sophisticated — 1960” (above) — an idealized rendering of the downtown skyline, oddly missing Pegasus.

Honorable Mention: Not specifically Dallas-related, but it IS Texas-related: “‘Used Books & Guns’ — 1967.”  I’ve updated the post with a photo, which may or may not be the actual San Antonio bookstore which appeared as an illustration in a children’s book.
