    A friend of mine just moved to that part of town and I’ve been wanting to take my camera to take pictures and you have beaten me to it – I really like the mix of properties in that part of town.

    • The one thing that messes up photography is most of the homes have fences across the front of the yard. Nice hearing from you.

  2. This one looks scary. The featured one.

    • Why does it look scary?

      • It has to be me, because I am the one saying it, but maybe it’s that thing where everything is flattened on the picture plane. Like before. It’s not a bad thing. It just, to me, becomes a point of view. It makes the house look a little creepy.

        • I did some things to make the different colored bricks stand out more.

  3. Grew up in Houston during the 50’s and 60’s. Dad used to work at the old Schlumberger plant on Navigation before it moved out on the Gulf Freeway. We used to go to a little Mexican restaurant in the East End called Ninfa’s. Had to wait in line to get in.

    • Ninfa’s on Navigation is still in business. The rest of the chain is gone.

  6. Thank you for liking “Icescapes.” These photos have such great textures in them. It sounds sort of strange to say this, but the rust and bricks and metal siding are so interesting to look at. The rust hints at the passage of time, and the condition of the bricks and metal siding hint at how much the owners of these places care (or do not care) about their property. I especially like “A Brick House.”

  7. 79-80 I lived in Houston off of the east Tex Hwy, I liked your post.

    • The magic of the place is everything is one of a kind.

  8. Rich stuff, Ron. The urban/industrial centres of cities should be shown off more. Love it.
