  1. I was looking at Google Maps at the area around the Palladium Theater and along Grand Parkway and noticed that when I am zoomed in sufficiently on "map" mode, the thumbnail for "earth" mode (which is satellite imagery) on the bottom left corner of my screen shows a more updated satellite imagery than whats shown when I actually click the "earth" button. Both Google Earth and Google Maps with Satellite Imagery show imagery dated October 2012 for most of this area. Looking at the imagery in the thumbnail, it looks to be from October 2013 (or so I assume based on various developments not being
  2. I know this probably asked a lot, but that makes this more necessary, plus I can't find exactly what I'm looking for. I am looking for a spot to get a shot of the Houston skyline, but from the east, one that captures St. Joseph's in the shot. I want one where it's safe to shoot, or at least somewhat safe, where I don't have to worry too much about having a decent camera. I know everyone says to shoot from the opposite side, like where Eleanor Tinsley park is, but I personally want one with a shot of the hospital in it. Also, maybe one that doesn't have too much rundown scenery around it. If an
  3. Im watching FOX's pre SuperBowl coverage in Houston. They had an animated segment around 1pm that talked about the history of football in Houston. When discribing some game event they showed an obvious illustration of the Dallas skyline and showing "how Houston was devastated after they lost the game" and the skyline was torn in half. But it was the Dallas skyline. HAHA Sorry I don't have a vid. For us architecture snobs this is a huge faux pas. People in the north think we are the same city. I KNOW Houston must be offended.
  4. Here's a little panorama I shot from room 8079 at the Hilton Americas.
  5. Hello from the Dallas section of HAIF ya'll. I didn't know where to put my favorite photos of H-Town so I guess this is good enough. Sorry if some of these photos have already been posted. I haven't checked the other threads out. Feel free to add your own random favs. No category required.
  6. Recently, CNP Tower's floodlight lit crown went dark, replaced with red lighting on the edges. Today, I spotted work ongoing on the crown itself. Anyone know if it's going LED? I'd imagine that's the move since they're more energy efficient than floodlights. If true, this could produce some interesting nighttime lighting. https://twitter.com/thachadwick/status/568201083752824832
  7. I took this a few weeks ago. It was raining off and on all day, I decided to test my luck with a long exposure and I was pretty impressed with the outcome! Canon T2i 18-55mm f8 30sec exposure ISO 100 heres a link to my Flickr page https://www.flickr.com/photos/32411159@N05/15978858013/
  8. While all of these might not come to fruition its amazing what NYC could look like with these possible additions. Houston has been in a building boom for a little while know, but the economy has recovered to a point where even The Big Apple is getting some love. The link is below: http://www.archdaily.com/569136/check-out-these-images-of-new-york-s-skyline-in-2018/
  9. Well, the title speaks for itself. Here's my list: 1. Uptown (looking to the east from the SW Freeway, uptown looks very impressive. Especially with all of the cranes) 2. DT - from 45 SE of DT 3. TMC from 610 4. Energy Corridor 5. The Woodlands 6. Greenway Plaza/Upper Kirby.
  10. I have a question: With all the office buildings going up in the Energy Corridor do you guys foresee the development of a skyline that would rival Uptown or TMC?
  11. Everyone is always speaking of Uptown Dallas developments and how its coming along as far as urbanity. A certain member pointed out in another thread that Houston's TMC has similar developments as Uptown Dallas urbanly speaking. For one thing, the light rail runs right through TMC and there are booming projects. Although it's just in the field of Medical research (how boring!). But which developments are better UT or Medical Center?. Houston also has nearby Midtown and Musuem District, and Rice Village to add to the area. So on a large scale, which city is more developed? Gimmie some thought
  12. In case anybody missed it http://youtu.be/Q6NBWj0kovo
  13. What area of Houston would be a potential candidate for the next Houston Skyline ? Right now we have 7 skylines. Downtown, Uptown/Galleria, Texas Medical Center, Greenway Plaza, Memorial/Energy Corridor, Westchase, and Greenspoint. I was thinking the Northwest/290 Skyline, the area around Tidwell and Hollister Rd. It has a few mid-rise buildings and definitely alot of commerce around that area. Another maybe forming is The Woodlands/Spring Skyline with the new ExxonMobil Campus being built on the northside and the buildings in The Woodlands Town Center. I'm sure there are other areas aro
  14. Hello all! I'm hoping I can hunt down some secret tips from all you HAIF folks. I've recently undertaken a personal photography project of seeking out unique views of downtown Houston. I'm most interested in elevated views and have high hopes to find some ways of accessing some rooftops in Houston and would love any insider tips! Here is an example of what I've been able to capture so far: http://petermolick.photoshelter.com/gallery-image/Houston/G0000YreO9HEiDeA/I00000.6FAJoB85I/C0000XeWuFFt6iGM Please let me know what you think and share if you'd like - THANKS! *I realiz
  15. Brand newbie here, but have been reading for years. I've always loved to take pictures of Downtown and now that I'm working here I have more access Just wanted to share a few of my favorites
  16. I made a time lapse video of clouds passing by the Houston skyline today and I thought you guys might enjoy it. Let me know what you think!
  17. I recently set up a webcam of the Houston skyline and it is going live tonight. The cam is located on a rooftop in Montrose. It's actually the same cam that was used to make the time lapse video I posted earlier. I'm not sure if it's going to be permanent yet, but I thought you guys might enjoy it while it's available. http://www.jackson-myers.com/Webcam/ I should probably add that launching it at night might be a dumb idea because you can't see as much in the dark, but I think the view looks pretty good in the day.
  18. I just backtracked this thread once I realized there was a conversation about an 80 story tower.. I'm sorry, but how can anyone here be okay with an 80 story tower going up adjacent to the Transco tower? That will ruin the Galleria skyline. You know they would be forced to turn off the rotating lighthouse spotlight as Deyaar nimbys on the 60th through 80th floors would whine about the beam hitting their windows. Build the damn thing anywhere else - preferablly downtown or the med center - or cut the height to not ruin a great architectural icon for Houston. There's no need for a building talle
  19. Will the skylines of Downtown Houston and Texas Medical Center ever connect or at least grow very close to each other?
