I am not a native of Lubbock, nor even of Texas. I was born and raised in Greenfield, Indiana, spent a couple of years living in Glasgow, Scotland, and then landed in Lubbock where I've been ever since. Have a look!

A bit windy


We had quite a windstorm a couple of weeks ago; this tree was one of the casualties.

Pretty in pink


Or is it more salmon?

I may have posted this already, but this is a beautiful building, so it is certainly worth a second look. (Or a first!)

This looks like half a building to me.

Blogger photo uploading is currently down. Sigh.

I like it when traffic is so light that my husband can stand in the middle of the street.

Just for you


I'm sure this wall was put up just for the birds to have a nice place to sit!

I love this sign.

I liked the brick on this building.

Have a seat


I think these concrete pillars are technically designed to keep out-of-control cars from crashing into the building. However, they also strike me as a nice place to sit and watch life go by for a few minutes. Or to just eat lunch.

This is an old hotel in downtown Lubbock. It has been used for office space in recent years, though most recently it hasn't been used at all. A developer (or whatever you call them) in town has bought the building and is remodeling it into apartments that no ordinary person will ever be able to afford.

Lunch?

How did he get there?


I do not know the purpose of this statue, but it does give passers-by something to smile at!

The Tower


This beautiful old church in downtown does not seem to fit in with the architecture of the buildings around it, but it has been there so long that it is hard to notice that it looks different.

Rough Ride


A lot of the downtown streets have been left as brick.

Time to get away



This is the terminus for the interstate coaches, not the city buses. T.N.M.&O. stands for Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma.
