This architectural oddity is located about a quarter mile North of Ninfa’s on Navigation in Houston’s Eado neighborhood.  The area is in transition with large tracts of vacant land awaiting development.  Some of these images were influenced by Geiger’s interpretation of the loading port on a garbage truck.

The best thing about a Renaissance Festival is you can be anyone you want to be. Here are photos of ladies or wenches in costumes of all sorts.  All were shot on October 6, 2012, opening day in Plantersville, Texas.  By the end of the day cloudy skies provided soft lighting.

Willow Waterhole is a flood control project on 290 acres.  There are two ponds with the larger one portrayed here.  Over 1 million yards of earth were removed during construction.  A side effect of this dig is a beautiful park and wildlife habitat.  Learn more here.

Due to my trip to Spain, I only had half a month of cruising Houston’s excellent art galleries.  I did get to the opening of the Houston Fine Arts Fair.  It was very crowded.

The weather was just right, so I went over to a nearby pond and took pictures of reflections on the water.

Bilbao Patterns

The jet lag is almost gone and I am looking forward to some time at home.  There is a big art show in Houston this week, so here are some artsy photos.  I can’t remember what “Red Box” was in case anyone wants to know.

Of the three major stops on this trip, Bilbao had the most opportunities for urban and street photograph, my favorite genre.  San Sebastian was the most beautiful and had the best night life.  Pamplona had the best food.

How does one photograph one of the most famous buildings in the world in a way says more about yourself as a photographer than the building itself?  Those who teach photography call the issue triteness.  Let me know how I did. I did get lucky because they turned on the fog machine while I was there.
