1. It’s fall and that means running weather. Wait. What? It’s still 100-plus degrees outside? After dark? Geez. Well, rain or shine, heat or, uh, heat (yeah, that appears to be our only option), the Dallas Running Club’s 5-mile Breakfast Bash will roll on at 8 a.m. Saturday.
Register on race day between 6:30-7 a.m. Members are free and non-members are $15. Start and finish at Winfrey Point.
2. Tis the season for fresh produce and locally made goods. It happens every (almost) Saturday this fall — The White Rock Local Market pops up at Lakeside Baptist Church on Garland Road the first and third Saturday of the month and at Green Spot on Buckner the second and fourth. 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Bonus: Check the WRLM website for information about the upcoming pie contest.
3. Renowned photographer John Sexton — recipient of the 2005 North American Nature Photography Association Lifetime Achievement Award and author of books “Recollections: Three Decades of Photographs,” an award-winning retrospective volume, “Quiet Light,” “Listen to the Trees” and “Places of Power: The Aesthetics of Technology” — will host a free presentation open to the public at 1 p.m. Saturday at Richland College in the Fanin Performance Hall.
The lecture will include examples and anecdotes drawn from Sexton’s six-year close working relationship with Ansel Adams. “Images by both Sexton and Adams will be transformed on the screen from the negative to the final print, progressing through the various creative steps in the evolution of an expressive photographic print,” organizers note. A poster sale and signing in the Fannin Performance Hall lobby will follow the presentation. More here.
