The 36 foot tall statues of the Beatles by David Adickes in front of the Summer Street Studios. Unfortunately, the trees were in the way a bit from this angle that shows the downtown skyline.
Funny story, I had to put up my tripod on top of my car to try to get this shot in order to at least get a part of downtown in the picture. I also love how warm the light just before sunset is. It’s funny how the light before sunset is good for lighting a subject, but the light 20 minutes after sunset is great for backgrounds and the sky. Actual sunset is kind of useless.
The Wildlife Sanctuary sculpture in the Heights where it looks like a church is sinking into the ground (or coming out if you’re a glass half full kind of person)
The Preservons la Creation mural that just became unveiled. It’s a really big mural.
Plensa’s Mirror sculpture on the Rice University campus. Somehow this got over 4000 views on my flickr page and I have no idea where or how.
James Turrell’s “Twilight Epiphany” Skyspace on the Rice University campus
Not art per se, but I love that rotating electric guitar over the Hard Rock Cafe with the Bank of America Center (4th largest downtown building) in the background. The Bank of America center itself is pretty unique looking too.
St. John church in Sam Houston Park. Very old church surrounded by massive modern skyscrapers is pretty interesting (to me at least).
“The Esplanade at Navigation” has a giant anchor in the esplanade. The reason for it is to acknowledge the importance of the city and the bayou and the Ship Channel.
The Houston ship channel has yucky water, stinky air, and smoke in the air, but the Fred Hartman Bridge sticks out as a work of beauty
Market Square Park in downtown has the Points of View sculpture
