When conjuring up images of Houston, many individuals who don’t know the city might not realize the myriad of photo ops that are available, from charming Victorian Homes and turn of the century stately architecture to modern concept parks and gleaming skyscrapers. There are beautiful spaces with lovely fountains, historic statues, great oak trees and colorful gardens. And the meandering river that snakes though the city offers photographic abstractions and classic scenes to capture. But Jim Caldwell does know what Houston has to offer the photographer, and in fact, has made a life long tribute to the beauty and variety of the Bayou City. Join him on any or all of his 3 hour jaunts slated for a number of Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year.
Tranquility Park, built to tribute the NASA Apollo Space program, is set in the valley of Houston’s sleek skyscrapers and offers an array of photographic abstractions thanks to the many patterns of windows and myriad of building shapes and heights. The Wortham Fountain, with water flowing over and down across a collection of cylinders provides shutter speed exercises too. With varying platforms that offer easy access your vantage points are numerous whether from below, above or parallel.
