Good stuff! Quality photos, a nice mix of classic and new architecture, and a lot of good energy in the street-level photos with people.

Those are some awesome photos, I like that you went to a ton of different places like the rice graduate apartments and the glass circle building way out on Westheimer!

Ah, my favorite area of Houston. I especially liked being here during winter because it never looked like winter there.

Nice. Man, you captured the Fred Hartman Bridge and San Jacinto Monument way over on the east side of the city/metro. The reverse view of that from the bridge is one you'll never forget. Houston is a beast.

what an amazing city and skyline. I love how fast it is densifying and creating great modern architecture in the residential and skyscraper departments
