Houston - In the Loop

I got some new lens for my camera so I have lots of new pictures. I am probably going to post another thread of stuff i did in another part of town soon. But for now enjoy life inside the 610 loop of Houston.

Metro just started doing that a month ago as some sort of publicity stunt promoting safety along the rail lines.

for those of you from out of town, the second photo is of the building that used to house Love Street Light Circus Feel Good Machine, the night club where ZZ Top played their first- ever show.

It has been abandoned since Love Street closed- and it was empty for 30 years before that!

that building is actually schedule to be redeveloped by the city into a bayou clubhouse kinda thing. there is a sign out front of it with more details. of course anything would be better then the hobo condo that it is now.

Not trying to downplay how great these photos were, because they were just that, but I just have to say that Houston has some of the most beautiful women on earth.
