    • Thank you David. I want to go over there at sunset because the light will be to my back from the location the shot was taken.

  9. Ron, someone commented on my blog that Houston is uglier than other cities because it lacks zoning. As you have a great eye for beauty and local color do you have any thoughts on the question?

    • Houston is better looking than most cities. The lack of zoning allows for reallocation of land to better uses. Most residential neighborhoods are protected by deed restrictions so your next door neighbor can’t open a bar in his house. There are also setback and density rules that apply to prevent developers from building too many townhouses per acre, but the choice to build townhouses or something else is up to the landowner. The only thing zoning accomplishes is to strip property owners of their rights and enrich the government officials who grant variances. Our mayor who is a Democrat even praises the system as it is.

    • Thank you. The stump was shot walking distance from where I live. The city is still recovering from the loss of so many trees.

  14. Stop taking the world so seriously; yep. And how to do that is to laugh with joy when you see a great photo of a puppy in a bag.
