Well I made it back to work today which means my vacation is over. I figured it was time to catch up on my vacation experiences. Getting back to road trips day 4 was spent in downtown Houston at Market Square. I like this unique little park surrounded by Congress, Milam, Travis and Preston Streets. It’s only one small square block but it contains many sights and sounds. Plants, animals, people, cars, buildings and lots of atmosphere. It was extremely hot again, however being a park with trees I was able to find a little shade to sit down and rest every now and then.
I always make my way to the little gardens of flowers around the park. Here are a few flowers that caught my eye.
More day 4 photos can be found on my flickr site
Naturally in a park downtown you see people. Catching them in a natural state without them seeing can be tough at times. I happened to get a few candids while sitting around the park.
Animals were aplenty to catch in my camera eyepiece. Birds and dogs were the animals of the day.
The artistic content in the square is varied and entertaining. The fountains on each end have tile inlays that are colorful with a layer of water that floats across it.
I made an effort to be sure I photographed a few of the businesses that surround the park. Minute Maid Baseball field is also just down the street.
I walked around the next block over and took a few more shots to capture things along the streets.
One final shot for the blog to leave you with a soft feeling!
If that doesn’t work I’ll go for the cute squirrel shot!
