Downtown Houston is a target-rich environment for photography...especially at magic hour.
#LocalGem #GoldenHour A grove of trees with their trunks painted blue, using environmentally safe materials. This art project provides a beautifully surreal backdrop for a nightly free yoga gathering at sunset.
#LocalGem #GoldenHour Lightning dances over the Houston skyline as a late May cold front moves through the city.
#Lightning There's probably more tall tales than substantiated fact out there about this infamous bordello-turned-Tex-Mex restaurant y live music venue. It was opened in the early 1940s by Madame Taken from a parking garage in downtown.

#StunningStructures This underground tunnel at the MFAH feels as if it's straight out of a music video! Astros! Sitting by the rooftop pool, gazing at the moon in midtown Houston. Winter time is when Houston really shines. It is a season characterized by bright clear days and brisk moonlit nights. It's a city that gets a lot of precipitation, but when the clouds part it can be truly magnificent. I often say The Biscuit Paint Wall is a super cute place in Houston (Montrose to be exact) to take pictures. Fun place for the family with young kids of all ages. Very wide selection of sea species. Must visit if in town. Amazing vegan!!! A Houston mecca for modern art. The museum was founded in 1948 and presented art in locations all over the city. In 1972, CAMH moved into this beautiful facility designed by Gunnar Birkerts. Downtown Houston Texas. Whether it is historic or new, each building has it's very own personality and 'look'.

Hugo Ortega's incredible Mexican Restaurant on Art installation by Bruce Munro. Munro originally conceived the idea for Field of Light in 1992 during a trip through the red desert of central Australia, when he sketched a landscape of illuminated stems that would wait like dormant seeds in a dry desert, to bloom at night. Cool looking mushrooms One serious enchilada. Hugo Ortega's culinary creations capture the real flavors of Mexico. I am getting very hungry just thinking about it.

Via Colori November 19, 2017 I was a bit indecisive as to which photo to post...color or black and white. There are things about both of them that I really like. So, I just thought I'd let you all enjoy both of them.
