Our City through Our Eyes

Garland Eyes is Garland, Texas. Garland Eyes is stories of Garland, its surrounding locales, and its people told with a camera, one image at a time. The stories can be powerful while muted, personal while public. They may be edgy or square, simple or indescribable. Whatever they are, they are our stories.

Though Garland Eyes was initially conceived with the idea that all images are of Garland, or by someone from Garland, we soon realized that our story could be more vividly told by enlisting the talents of avid photographers from surrounding communities.

Though we have grown to be much bigger than Garland herself, our simple mission remains the same: the adage, "a picture is worth a thousand words," is appropriate. Let the image do the talking.

We generally prefer photos that are on the artistic side, that moved the photographer one or two steps beyond his comfort zone, that bring a new perspective to the common view.

We won't usually identify individuals in the photos, unless it is necessary to the story. Regardless, we never identify minors without parent permission.
