Well done photos. I think I've seen your photos on other forums that show a lot better looking areas of the city. Either way, they're good photos.

Awesome. Joe's back.

I think this forum needs a little more Houston, and these next couple weeks are shaping up to be conducive to some getting out and about with the camera.

thanks guys. glad yall are enjoying the first installment.

@newtex - dont worry, i got highrises and ferrari's coming soon.

@jfre - you know you cant keep me down for long!

@tony - i hope it doesnt go down again either. hopefully it wont. i got MS security essentials and all proper updates so the spyware should have a harder time getting at me for a while

@sekkle - dude i thought about you the other day ago when i was driving in downtown. i actually saw two light rail cars running in tandem going down main. i had remembered you asking about that. been seeing alot more electric powered buses too lately.

Great pics. Do you have two Flickr accounts? Is that the reason for the two profile names?

^You don't ever worry about getting in trouble for it? I know if you have a paid subscription they give you another one free, but to have several...

You're giving me ideas.

Wow its blazing hot because these pictures bring the heat! Love this Austin shot from the Montopolis Bridge area! I think that is one of the best angles of the skyline!
