The last time I posted a thread was in October. I have taken these pics over the last month that cover a lot of areas in the Innerloop. I have sort of excluded the east side since I am not too familair with it outside of Third Ward, but I will cover as much as I can in the next thread. These photos cover some of Downtown, the Near Northside, the Montrose, Sixth Ward, the Heights, the Village, and Midtown. By the way, no car needed in this car friendly city to get to these destinations and got to each one with ease.

When I think of Houston I think...
Papasitos, West University Place, drive through liquor stores,
Its not the heat... Its the HEAT AND THE HUMITY
High School Football, Papa Doe's (sp?), Craw daddies, Chey's, Luby's, Freeways, Galleria, "the village"

Doesn't look like the Houston I lived in before moving to Austin, but I think the forumer wanted people to see the less photographed, less glitzy areas. A lot of the funkiness shown in the photos reminds me of Austin, where funkiness, not glitz, is the norm.
