Diagnostic Clinic Building:


Tree:


Yummy:


"Look at that line... I wish I knew where it began":


"Whoopsee, I guess we could go to the zoo?":


Playing on the Sun Dial:


The Museum:


HMNS:


Butterflies:




Progress:


The Warwick Towers:


The Museum:


The Warwick Towers again:


JP Morgan Chase Tower:




"Wait... Where are we going?":


The Houston Center:


Esperon Building:


Travis Street:


Bank of America Center:


Downtown:


Pennzoil Place:


Uptown:


"No sweety, we live over there...":


City Hall:


Houston Center:


Yours Truely:


Calpine Center:


Chase Bank Building:


Skyline District:


JPMCT:


Pennzoil Place:


Chase Bank Building:


Wells Fargo Plaza:


Skyline District:


1 Shell Plaza:


Reliant Energy Plaza:


1,002ft.:


The Train:


Urban Cowboy:


Downtown:


Museum of Fine Art:


"Whos late for work?":


Where the real operations of the Museum go on:




"Why do I care about a street lamp?"


The Warwick Towers (again):


"Arn't you sad we didn't see the Body Worlds?":


That tree:


Last Shot:



My camera died

Great work, HoustonTexas!!! Although overcast doesn't help to take the sharpest, clearest images - not that your photos aren't clear, in contrary - it does help avoid overexposed photos. Houston is pretty photogenic, I think, so it looks good either way. Too bad the camera died, but the tour was truly nice. Can we expect a Part II?

Those are some excellent overhead shots. And that last pic in Herman Park looks very nice, IMO. Something about nature and man and so forth. Nice mix.

I enjoyed the tour, HoustonTexas!

That JP Morgan tower is TALL

I liked seeing all of that greenery around downtown also.
