Metro Houston

- My less than mediocre photos of the Houston area.

- I really liked the tunnel system downtown which connects several office buildings and is lined with areas of shops. Outside of downtown, Houston really lived up to its image of infamous sprawl. Lots of clusters of suburban skyscrapers.

- Galveston was nice, however the water was too cold. Either damage (from Hurricane Ike) wasn't as bad as I expected it to be, or they recover very fast over there. (What's in my pictures are the worst that I saw)

- These were all taken last weekend.
