These photos were captured at a dance festival in Houston’s Discovery Green, a beautiful park across the street from the George R. brown Convention Center downtown.  Discovery Green was inspired loosely by Chicago’s Millennium Park.

These are photographs from the Westside Omni Hotel where I spent new year’s eve dancing the night away.  In the morning children were feeding the koi their special mix that the hotel gives out in little envelopes.  If you look carefully the fish are visible in one of the interior images.  These interior photos were captured with an ancient Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 AF lens.

A Saturday in December

I wandered up to the Houston Heights and saw the sights on 19th Street.  It looks like Main Street in a small town despite being surrounded by sprawling Houston.

That evening there were more art gallery openings than one could attend in an evening.  Most of these were true openings with new works, not just art store open houses like the ones seen on Canyon Road in Santa Fe.  Photographs in the background in “3 Blonds” are by John Runnels at Redbud Gallery.  “Cecilia” is at Archway Gallery.

These photos were taken from the Petroleum Club.  It is on the top floor of a building formerly occupied by Exxon Mobile.  The club will move to a new location in 2015.  I used a Samsung Galaxy S3 in low light mode for the captures.

Mostly onlookers, but one artist at Houston Via Colori 2014. “Wrench” was photographed in the warehouse district.  Colors in the gutter were from pastel works that got washed out by a heavy rain.

Via Colori is held on the weekend before Thanksgiving in Houston, Texas.  This year activities on Saturday were canceled due to rain.  Activities had to start all over again on Sunday and be ready to wrap up by 6 PM when streets would be turned over to traffic.

The final three photos are from Artcrawl which was held on the rainy Saturday in the warehouse district North of downtown.

Despite awful weather a lot of folks came out to Highland Village to see a collection of Ferrari cars.  I look at the people first and the cars later.  The cars are nothing more than bait.
