Buffalo Bayou is a 53 mile long waterway flowing across Houston, Texas and emptying into the Houston Ship Chanel.  Because Houston is only about 50 feet above sea level, the Bayous are the city’s main drainage system.  Some say a Bayou is just a fancy name for a ditch.  This section of the bayou is about a mile West of Downtown Houston and has been developed into an attractive park.  The downtown Houston skyline is visible here. To the lower right of the downtown image is the massive Federal Reserve Bank building. That is where bureaucrats can create billions of dollars of money simply by pressing some keys at a computer.

        • It is still around, but I have never been in there. It is also hard to park because Twin Peaks is around the corner.

    I did not that back ground about Houston … a 53 mile water way, and an urban one at that.

    • The city was established on the banks of that waterway.

  12. Fantastic images Ron.

    The Houston skyline photo almost looks like a black and white shot of a set of lego buildings with the sharp steps in the slopes etc.

    • I used to work in a few of those buildings. The people inside acted like they were made out of Lego bricks sometimes.
