Had time the night before todays hearing and just after my hearing today to take these pics.
The morning pics were taken before 11:00 a.m. so not too many people on the streets.
Also, still working on the night shots so they're a little blurring.

as usual you take great photographs. are you a professional? you make Corpus look good. well, Corpus aint too bad aesthetically speaking, if you just stick to the waterfront/bayfront area...and get rid of SPID. SPID is horrible, and all the development there is ugly.have you eaten at City Diner? i see its an oyster bar. i want raw oysters. and i really should visit the USS Lexington before i move

Not a professional by a long shot, but I'm am self studying photography.

Yeah, CC definately has its good and bad parts.

Just had a couple of hours today so I stuck with the DT area.

Didn't even eat DT, took off right after taking the photos so I could get back to Houston before rush hour.

Great pics, matter of fact they represent EXACTLY what I saw both day and night the 2 weeks we visited Corpus. Maybe its because I am an optimist, see the glass half full rather than half empty, see the positive rather than the negative and most of all perhaps because I am an urban planner and mass transit professional that I see so much potential in Corpus. Without getting into politics and the family or "old" money issues, my gut feeling is Corpus is one of the best kept secrets for future retirees as well as those that want a coastal city that they can afford rather than just visit or dream about. When we visited Corpus each time we did what we would do if we lived there, 1. Got up and walked, took the bus or drove as we would if we worked there. 2. Walked, bused or drove at the time we would be getting off of work to each of the neighborhoods we were considering living in. 3. Went to the stores we would be shopping at during the time we would be shopping if we lived in Corpus. 4. Walked or drove to a resturant we would be eating at during the time we would most likely be eating there. 5. Walked around the parks and along the ocean front at the times we would be walking at them and finally 6. Walked a 6 block radius around the houses we were considering during the evening and weekend to see what the neighborhood was like and if it appeared friendly and inviting. We, like most people, are not comfortable with the unknown, therefore, we ruled out houses in new developments that did not have houses on either side across the street or behind (unless of course there was a park or view of some kind). Glaring example, Cimmeron Lakes Estates, gated community and a new Valero on other side of the gated community fence, now the $300,000 to $500,000 homes have commercial lighting and the smell of the chicken being fried day and night. Resale values on those homes just fell up to 30%, maybe even more. Who knew that was going to happen on the other side of the fence?
Finally, a visit to the city and county offices and the chambe of commerce before I told them what I did for a living. If the city, county and chamber is not helpful and friendly when you tell them you are new to the city and thinking about moving there, you can be pretty sure they are no more helpful to the residents or when you need them for something.
Remember, talk to the locals, waitress, store clerks, people on the street or in the malls, they usually will be honest with their opinions. Don't just ask "How do you like living here", ask them specifics. "Thinking of moving to Del Mar neighborhood, do you know anything about that area"? Ask people at the places you will be going to when you live there. I dont shop at WalMart, EVER, so I dont go there and observe or ask questions there. Dont just wander around, talk to people, introduce yourself, smile, ASK questions dont guess or assume.
Again, thanks for the pictures, they reflect what we saw and felt and why we decided to move there.

Good job RGV!
There you go, you are getting better each time you post new photos. I always like Corpus, but never spent much time there. Corpus is probably the least understood and least known metro city in Texas.

The movie Pearl Harbor was shot in Corpus on the USS LExington.

You guys are too kind. Maybe there is a future in this field as long as it involves taking pictures of supermodels.

Awesome Pictures.. I was however shocked that there was not one picture of the Selena statue, or the Cool WHAT-A-BURGER there near the beach. =)

But great pictures.. I have to go back down there next summer and camp on the beach again.
