Featured Photo: Traveling Man smiles over downtown Dallas

Thanks to Dallas Morning News reporter Brooks Egerton for this great photo of the Traveling Man near Deep Ellum Station.

This statue, which shows the Traveling Man sitting, strumming a guitar is called “Waiting on a Train.” It is one of three statues that DART commissioned to build around Deep Ellum Station in 2007. Brandon Oldenburg and Brad Oldham won the commission and beat out four other finalists competing for the work. Many years later, these statues can be found in photos across Instagram, Flickr and all across the Internet.
