Houston Japan Festival 2016

DSC_2355

 

These photos are from the annual Houston Japan Festival held in Hermann park.  As usual there are lots of people in traditional Japanese clothing and Cosplayers.  My favorite is the French Maid.  She works in sales.  The gal in blue is a designer for a large company.

More photos from the 2016 Houston Art Car Parade, the largest in the world. It was held downtown this year due to construction on Allen Parkway, its usual location.  I have to thank all these people for making Houston one of the most interesting places in the US to live.  Especially, I want to thank the many people who allow me to photograph them year after year.

Photos from Houston’s Gay Pride day held the day after SCOTUS ruled gays may marry and their marriages must be recognized by all states.  This year it was held downtown with a festival outside city hall and the parade at night downtown.  These photographs  were taken at the festival.  Swimming in the reflecting pool in front of city hall is prohibited.  At first  police chased folks out of the pool, but eventually gave up.  Remember, it is very hot and humid here in the summer.

Nikon recently started shipping a 200-500mm f/5.6 telephoto zoom lens.  The big news is it sells for only $1396 and has better image quality at the long end than their 80-400 zoom.  These were taken at nearby Brays Bayou.  This same drainage ditch overflowed in May of 2015 flooding thousands of homes, including mine.  It took 6 months to put my house back together.

This is Houston’s annual gathering for Ferrari owners. There was a nice selection of Lamborghini cars and other exotics there. Weather was sunny and mild. Most would say it was perfect, but a little haze helps when taking photos of people.
