Houston Photo-Blog for Blogophilia 48.4


If I ruled the world - bet that’s what he’s saying

 

Bird Strut

 

Taken by Lori Epperson. Sun streaming in church window. Church is about 140 years old and probably one of the oldest structures in Houston

 

Sweet it is, when on the high seas the winds are lashing the waters, to gaze from the land on another's struggles

 

Taken on ferry from Galveston to Bolivar Peninsula

 
 

Taken by Lori Epperson - spectacular!

 

This pic was like taking Baklava from a baby

 

The glass buildings in downtown make for some reflective shots

From the ferry - can’t get them like this at home

  5. Chuck says:

    Had a brother-in-law who lived in Houston for almost 20 years. I could never live there. visiting was okay…. which is good because pretty sure my daughter will live there at some point before long. (Seems like a requirement in the oil industry.)

  13. Leta says:

    Beautiful pictures! Especially like the one of Lori’s feet… I am so afraid of heights and that picture brought out the depths of heights that it gave me heart flutters… LoL!! *SHUDDERS*

    • Sue says:

      Thanks Leta – yeah Lori’s pic came out better. I did one too but didn’t work. she said cause she is taller….I guess some of those pics weren’t for the height challenged but was perfectly safe

  14. joaniethewriter says:

    Both you and Lori are very talented! I like the shot of her feet! Oh and the birds, and the buildings and the water, and and well….. all of them! lol

  15. trev says:

    what can I say… I would have never thought of doing this for this challenge Sue.. it works gobsmackingly well indeed… kudos to Lori.. I could NEVER stand on a glass floor some 60 floors up like that… NEVER in a million years… so brave… now the reflective pictures are really amazing indeed.. sets the imagination off looking at stuff from such an unusual prospective like that…. what a brilliant blog Sue… I take my hat off to you love.. brilliant blog..
