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.

The first three photos were captured at an opening for Latin American artist Gabriel de la Mora at Sicardi Gallery in Houston. It was my first visit to Sicardi’s new and spacious building across the street from the Houston Center for Photography. Sicardi specializes in the work of Latin American artists. I thought the associate’s red outfit was quite theatrical. The two Venezuelan girls were fans of the artist and explained one of his works was constructed out of thousands of layers of paint. Because the show included a light sculpture, it reminded me that I wanted to photograph Adela Andea’s outdoor installation at the Art League of Houston, so I drove a few blocks to get there and photographed it.
Houston artist Wendy Wagner is pictured with her friend Olga at Darke Gallery. Wendy is facing serious health issues, and truly inspires all with her positive attitude and new works on paper. The art associates who work at Anya Tish Gallery located at 4411 Montrose in Houston. The final two photos were shot at M Squared Gallery in the Houston Heights.

The first six photos were taken on a Saturday morning walk through downtown Austin, Texas. It was hot and humid leaving my shirt soaked after an hour. The others are from the 45 Street area. I expect to be visiting Austin regularly for the foreseeable future.

I spent the morning walking around taking pictures, most of which don’t look the way people think of San Francisco. Walking North from the ferry terminal I eventually found the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park. Herculese is a steam powered tug.
Street photography is my favorite. It is basically people watching with a camera. Unfortunately, the trend is to prohibit it in Europe.

In the glass city, reflections are everywhere. Reality is meaningless. Nature is for bugs. Meaning is trapped behind the mirror.
