This group of images was shot in the Houston Heights, downtown and near the De Menil.
This beauty contest was held at the Hooters Restaurant just off Kirby Drive in Houston, Texas during the spring of 2010. Some people condemn this restaurant chain because of the skimpy uniforms the waitresses wear. One should not be so quick because they hire young women with no prior restaurant experience and train them. In this lousy economy, that is something positive. Besides, what they wear is no worse than the cocktail waitresses in Vegas. Originally these were published in color, but there were extreme white balance problems so they were converted to black in white.
Here is the third set of photos from this past weekend’s Lone Star Rally where tens of thousands of motorcyclists and their howling machines swarmed Galveston Island. There is a search box on the “About” page if you want to look for last year’s photos from this great event.
It has been raining a lot in Houston. I have been playing in the puddles.
This major art fair was held over the weekend in Houston at the George R Brown Convention Center, downtown. They had a lot of interesting contemporary art on display.
This was a food truck festival complete with a band, and I did eat some wonderful Korean Mexican fusion tacos for lunch there. The gate crew was nice enough to let me in as media without having to pay for a ticket. It was hot and steamy. As I pulled out of the parking lot, it started raining. They will be open today.
Rain water collects at the curb in front of my house. Light reflects off these pools and strange things happen.
