Puts all others in the state to shame... love it! Truly Texas!

Too bad your light rail is above ground in the city, though! :(

denveraztec Aug 29, 2008 11:50 PM

I can only imagine what the humidity is like with temps in the upper 90s. Great shots and thanks for the tour!

Atlantan26 Aug 30, 2008 12:56 AM

Houston is definitely a one of a kind place

DSGB Aug 30, 2008 2:59 AM

Man, people in Houston must hate Wendy's.

LSyd Aug 30, 2008 5:28 AM

great pics of a mono-ethnic (white) suburb with no buildings built after 1950 and oil skyscrapers sticking out of a field, fitting for Bush's hometown ;)

Cool pics. Where is that bronze skyline? The Chase Building I presume?

I have a story about Wendy's and Houston actually. It involved a chicken sandwich and a press-on fingernail. :yuck:

flar Aug 30, 2008 2:03 PM

I enjoyed this thread, I looked at it yesterday and it seemed to be a realistic tour (though I've never been to Houston).

Surrealplaces Aug 30, 2008 5:19 PM

Nice pictures. A good solid tour of all typers of areas.

City_boy12 Aug 30, 2008 5:46 PM

Wow, thanks everyone! My photo skills have a LONG way to go, but I"m workin' on it ;)

That skewed skyline bronze is actually from a hall on Rice's campus atop one the main doorway of the building. I took one look at it, and thought "that's a completely inaccurate and obstructed view of Houston... it's so... so... RICE!

LOL yep. I titled that photo and the one after it "mixed use". Perhaps I should have titled it "mixed waste" :jester:

Derek Aug 30, 2008 11:02 PM

"Where are all the people?" :P


Nice shots of Houston!
