Default Between the lines. (photos)





Just went out for a couple of tours with some photo friends. Fun times ensued.







































































































































































Massive high-rise in the middle of nowhere. And if that's not random enough....



Guess I'll have to play it like I found it.























So is it a one-stroke penalty if I put this in the water here?



Now, I realize what follows is a bit non sequitur but it was cool to see people getting hyped up over college football at the University of Houston.









Cougar alum and fellow Texas City native Austin Mayse performing at the pre-game tailgate. Much beer and food.



















The score didn't stay like that for too long against Mississippi State. But they'll fight, fight, fight for red and white and go on to victory. Next time, perhaps.

So yes, it was a rather productive week photo-wise. And fun too. Thanks for viewing.

Looks like fun - I need to drum up some photo friends and do a tour.

Question - the photo of the gazebo mixed in with all the med center shots, where is that thing located?

That gazebo is in the space between the UT School of Nursing and MD Anderson's Faculty Center, bounded by Holcombe on the North, Bertner St. on the West, and Pressler St. on the South. It's a wonderful little park, with chubby squirrels that are not shy about looking for handouts, lots of stone benches, and lots of shade.

Jfre's pics are great. I especially like it when they're about the Texas Medical Center, cuz that's where I hang out.

Wow, great show! I love it. Awesome musical selection, as well. Haven't listened to MBV in years.

Thanks.

After Google Map and street view I see now why I've never noticed that before. My infrequent trips down there usually are to TCH and I exit from Bertner and go west, plus that thing is tucked way up in the trees off the street. Next time I am down there with time to kill I will make a point of checking it out - looks very peaceful.

You should definitely check it out. Remember to bring some peanut butter crackers. Scooter (the chubbiest squirrel) will come running if you make little clicking noises with your teeth

TMC can have some pretty dense foot traffic but it was rather sparse at the time (between shifts) so I just focused on architecture and reflections.

Watch the Packers turn into the NFL's version of UH in the coming weeks. No offense anymore because everyone's injured; defense tires out late because it's on the field too much. It sucks.
