The museum district of Houston is a lovely area of town.




Lots of beautiful old oak trees.




Across the street from the Museum of Fine Arts

I lived in Irving Texas for over two years but never made it to Houston. The churches and the trees really look nice.
The thing I loved most about Texas was the people.

This is my main blog.
You took some great angle shots! These are beautiful photos! I've been to Houston a couple of times, but for family meetings only, didn't get a chance to do a lot of R&R.

Hi Snap, The entire 12 yrs. we lived in Clear Lake, I seldom went to downtown Houston. The church that I have been too many times (for meetings and conferences) was First United Methodist downtown. I'm not sure I ever went to the museum district. OH--we did go to some Astros games down there.

I love seeing your Houston pictures. Gorgeous!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Great visuals from Houston. It must be a lovely feeling taking a walk down the road lined with oak trees.

Great photos. I'd like to take a stroll under those shady trees. Wonderful capture!

I've been completely preoccupied with thoughts about religion and America for an hour since I saw your photographs. I really need to start making notebooks but I'm going to check what the difference is between methodist and presbyterian; I started to wonder why the presbyterian church looks so pointy and exact and I wonder if Americans are as church-going as they seem on TV?
I'm thinking - if so, does it have to do with being such a young country, and large, and having lots and lots of states within one country - is religion a way to hold it together and feel safer?
You'd never hear a politician say "God bless you" in Sweden. If someone goes to church on a regular basis or talks about God they are VERY religious - otherwise people may believe but in a private, personal way I suppose. I don't know. I have to start making those books now - been selling them faster than I can make them :)

Had no idea Houston was so green and luscious. Wouldn't know which church to go to.
Yes, Americans are church goers, but I suspect it's for social reasons - gives you a chance to catch up with everyone.
Wonderful photos.

I just love the pics of the live oak trees. Makes a person want to stroll down the path under their protection. Great job!

Gaelyn said...

What a beautiful tour. Love all the many forms of arches. Especially the trees.

Pat - Arkansas said...

Those are the best photos of Houston I've ever seen. When I think of Houston, all I can mentally see is towering clover-leaf highway ramps, bumper-to-bumper traffic, and of course, feel the H.E.A.T. :)

Thanks for showing me a better side.

Lovely views of the city. I especially like the last one with the interesting shadows.
Hugs and blessings,

Those are lovely shots. The pictures of the churches are beautiful and I could stroll along that walk all day.

Barb said...

I love the archway photos - both the tree ones and the architectural ones.

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

Wonderful pictures of the church steeples! There is something about the architecture of each one that just gives one a reverent feeling. Such a great tree lined sidewalk and even though I KNOW it's hot there, it looks like a pleasant cool walking street.

I saw your comment on Daisy Cottage ands stopped by to say hello. I saw Luie & Julia and loved it too!
That part of Houston is beautiful. Our son and his family live in The Woodlands.

I love the Oak shaded path, so nice to see this in a large metropolis.

Janet said...

Beautiful photos! The tree lined street at the top is my favorite. It reminds me of the street where my grandma lived when I was a child.
