Those are very artistic photos of what could be called quite an ugly city.

I look forward to more photos!

Houston is such a strange city. I like it though because there is no rhyme or reason to it's form. I love the people in Houston, they are very outgoing. Houston is like a mix of LA, New Orleans and Tampa. Thanks for an entertaining thread.

Houston is starting to fill in. I think those new condos that are supposed to be New Orleans style are way out of scale. Houston maybe the farthest city out west to embrace colonialism.

awesome photo!

I'd love to visit Texas and see how weird/wonderful it is. It would be a massive culture shock to someone like me.
