While in Houston, I took a long hike along a shaded walking trail in the area where I was staying. There are so many plants that will grow in the more tropical Houston but not grow where I live which is about a four-hour drive north. It is too cold up there for these plants to survive through the winter so I took photos to look them up in my books when I got home.
I went to the Beach Boys concert and was well equipped with my two favorite lenses so I could catch some super shots but as I approached the gate where a kind and understanding man was taking tickets, he shook his head in sympathy as I vented my frustration at having to check my entire camera bag at the counter and take away only a small ticket in hand to prove I was the owner after the concert was over. It wasn’t his fault. I hope he didn’t have to listen to many more of the disappointed photographers out there. He let me take my iPhone.
It was a quick trip and I never actually got into the city. The Woodlands is a suburb of Houston and we ate locally and swam and hiked nearby. The humidity was a nice change, but I am glad I don’t live in the thick, moist air.
