A Rainy Day in the Bishop Arts District
The Bishop Arts District is a small shopping and dining district down in the southeast part of Dallas. It makes up just a couple of blocks of the Oak Cliff neighborhood, but there’s a lot to do in those two blocks. There are a bunch of shops and restaurants and art galleries up and down the street. Like the Deep Ellum neighborhood east of downtown, there is also an array of public art and funky street decorations. And unlike the downtown Arts District, it has a lot more going on in terms of shopping and dining.
The southern half of Dallas is often neglected by those who live on the north side of town, but if you’re up for a bit of a drive, the Bishop Arts District is definitely worth it. I went to Bishop Arts recently with a couple of friends. It was (relatively) cold and wet, and just after lunch it started to rain, but we put up with the damp weather. After a long hot Texas summer, it was a nice change of pace. And while I prefer sunny days for picture taking, I was still able to snap some pretty good images. Here are a couple of my favorites.
