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.

Lamborghini Festival

In conjunction with a charitable benefit, Lamborghini supercars were displayed at City Center.  There were a few models around.  The blond was not working for me, the shot is a grab.  She had trouble keeping her eyes open in the bright light.  I am not sure about the black lines on her dress either.  Be careful if you visit City Center.  Parking is scarce.  If you park next door at Town and Country you will be towed.  It has happened to two people I know.

The funny thing about these cars is I could get across town faster in a pickup truck, and much faster on a 650 cc single cylinder motorcycle.  The truck can go over curbs, and if you tailgate other drivers will get out of  your way.  They do it to me all the time.  That is how I know.  Pickups attract no attention around here.  Cops will pull over fancy cars just because they are bored.   The bike can go between lanes, so it is fastest.

Photographers, it is impossible to do meaningful automotive photography at an event like this.  Use the cars as a background or prop and make people the subject.
