We did a quick driving tour of downtown Fort Worth as we did in Tulsa, Oklahoma. However, we only got out for 5 minutes to take a few photos in front of the Tarrant Country Courthouse. This may be the first time I’ve been to downtown Fort Worth, though perhaps I might have gone once around 28 years ago. I can’t remember.
The downtown was surprisingly charming with a mix of old and new. Probably because of the pandemic, the city was relatively quiet. But it was evident that it had more life than Tulsa. This is yet another place where I can spend some time and make serious architectural photographs.
The Tarrant County Courthouse is an impressive building constructed between 1893 to 1895. This isn’t the most compelling angle — the front entry and steps are grander. However, I guess this will do for a quick snapshot. It’s in stark contrast to my deliberate photograph of the much more modest Williamson Country Courthouse that I shot on a tripod, at blue hour, with the Fujifilm GFX 50R. Perhaps someday, I’ll have to make a dedicated trip to Fort Worth with the hefty medium format Fuji.
