Houston... Give it a try (no 56k)

Yes, it's a Houston thread. We've got some downtown, the Houston Marathon, the MLK Parade and a lot of misc. stuff. I know there are a lot of images, but please stay until the end, thanks!

Incredible pictures. I'm absolutely speechless how intense these photos are. Houston doesn't look exactly beautiful but lively and likeable.

For me as a European who does not know the United States very well, these pictures give a very good insight into how "real life" looks like in one of the country's less rich and famous cities. Thank you big time for posting these photos

These are some great photos, they really convey the feel of how it is to experience life in Houston. Excellent job and I look forward to more on a different city hopefully!

I still can't bring myself to like the city though as I've said before.

Thank you all so much! I'm so happy to be able to convey what life is like in this place I live and especially to give a glimpse to those who have never considered it.

what are you talking about? Houston is a very famous city in the United States and it's the forth largest city in the country. wow. you Europeans are indeed annoying, just because you see blacks in the pictures you're going to assume it's poor and not famous. how pathetic.

Hey dummy, he never mentioned race. Houston does actually have a poor inner city.
