My day around my hometown of Houston

Hey yall im new to the forum, but ive been checking it out for the past few weeks and love the pictures that people have taken, especially of houston and surrounding areas. well ive been a tourist all around this country and parts of the United Kingdom, but ive never been a tourist in my own place of birth, so i decided to go downtown and take some pictures of houston this past wednesday 6/25/08.

This first photo is on the 610 bridge.


Just an older photo i have from the ship channel area.


coming from the woodlands on 45
























































And leaving downtown back north.




I hope yall enjoyed this. ive seen plenty of pictures taken of houston so far. but i just wanted to add what i took the other day!

Awesome pictures, really nice density, but how is it off work hours? I don't see any residential buildings, I'd imagine it's dead on weekends and at night. Also, what's the middle lane on the expressway for? Is it a car pool lane?

That middle lane is the HOV lane yes. and i noticed that its quite dead around downtown, only when 430ish comes around does it get really busy with traffic and crowds of people at the bus stations. other than that, its not to busy!

Love the Skyline Houston Downtown is just very empty on the weekends. But I think they are currently adding a few more condo hirises by the Texans Stadium
