It was a breezy day in February and a morning shoot had been scrubbed. I had my calendar mixed up and the event I planned to shoot was another week away. So my friend and I drove west of downtown Houston and walked around Allen Parkway.
I had driven down this stretch many times over the years, but never parked and explored on foot. We found the pedestrian bridge where many people have taken this view of the skyline. If fact, there is a small hole in the fencing, just large enough to fit a lens through. Just a short walk to the left is a skateboard park and Buffalo Bayou. Houston was founded on the bank of the bayou, not too far from this spot.
