We've Fallen Hard For Dallas Photographer Justin Terveen.
Dear Justin Terveen,
Sup, bro? Hope you're good. Just wanted to let you know that we think you're pretty awesome. Sure, yeah, you could say that we have a “crush” on you. No, we've never met you. Is that weird? Maybe? OK. Let's just say we have a crush on your work then.
Because it's pretty great, man. You're a really good photographer. Like really good. Has anyone told you that before? I'm sure they have. I mean, you must hear it all the time. Especially because of your extensive Dallas skyline work.
We're not sure how you do it, really. Far as we can tell, you stay up all hours, just to catch Dallas in the perfect lighting scenarios. And it looks like you hit up some pretty dangerous locations — unfinished roofs, hills on the sides of highways, overpasses, bridges — just to get your angles.
And this is before we even get into talking about your tornado-chasing ways. Or your willingness to put yourself in electrical storm danger just to snap a picture of some lightning.
You've got chutzpah is what we're saying.
And, we think, you've got a kind streak, too. Now, we're not ones to steal photos — but you usually put yours out there for the taking, posting your gorgeous takes on the Dallas skyline for all to see (and download) on the Facebook and Flickr pages for your Urban Fabric Photography company. That's pretty cool of you. You should keep doing that. No, we're not sure how doing so is a profitable undertaking. But, hey, you're making a lot of computer desktops very happy by doing so. We hope you know that.
We also hope you know this: You've got impeccable timing. Like, every time we're feeling down about the city and are just downright bored, trolling around Facebook and looking for something to do, a photo of yours pops up in our news stream. Like this one. Definitely this one.
And then we feel better about Dallas. We remember why we love it. We remember why we fell for it in the first place. And that's no laughing matter. Seriously. It's pretty great, actually. So, thank you for that.
Stay cool, Mr. Terveen. Stay cool forever.
