Every November the Ferrari Festival is held in the upscale Highland Village shopping center on Westheimer Avenue in Houston, Texas. It’s on the edge of River Oaks, the most expensive neighborhood in the city. Most of the cars are privately owned, although the Ferrari racing support van and some very exotic race cars were present. Local restaurants were giving out lite bites and a nearby jewelry store poured free champagne.

Last night it rained 6 inches (15 cm) in my neighborhood. Streets flooded and the lights went out for 8 hours. That did not stop me from going out to some art gallery openings.
The Big Island is mostly covered by lava fields and volcanic ash. The beaches are no exception. Few of them are sandy.
This is a magical place where molten lava and poisonous gases spew forth from the ground. Nature is at its peak of fury here. The message is we are nothing. In minutes one passes from desolate inhospitable areas at altitude to lush rain forests and pacific beaches. The landscape is unreal often covered by lava flows.
This blog has almost 1,000,000 views. Check on the “About|Widgets” page. Help push me over the top today. The first three photos were taken at the Houston Japan Festival, the final two at Reality Klash on North Main.
Last night the Winter and Spring Street studios had an open house. There are 90 artist’s studios at Winter Street and about 40 at Spring Street. Both buildings were converted from industrial use. Having a large number of artist’s studios close together creates a critical mass allowing such events. The last two photos are from a week ago at Isabella Court and nearby Diverse Works.
