The reflection of the Wyndham sign was the biggest clue. From there, Google street view confirmed the window pattern of the Intercontinental hotel. Actually, my first thought was it was the new garage just north of the Texas Tower under construction, with a reflection of the Chase tower. But, obviously, there is no Wyndham next door.

I purposely include that in my pic to make it easier for someone to guess where I was.😎 I was going to use it in a r/bikehouston Bike Tag game that I play, but may have to re-think it now.

You should do this once  week. It's a good exercise.

I think I know a couple of the players represented here but I'm not sure, do you know who they are?

This should be an easy one, just look where my bike is, never mind the buildings around it.

The parking garage at the northwest corner of Milam and Clay

The Wedge Parking Garage thus the bike wedged in the corner. 13 stories of leg burning height. Once thanked the attendant for letting me ride it and he said people did it all the time.

Ah, I never associated this garage with the Wedge building since it has an attached garage. But, now that god awful pink (?) color makes more sense.

I wish I could get into the 16 story next door but it's gates are locked on weekends. Love doing high rise parking garages since we don't have any hills around here. I used to live in the Hill country of Texas and miss the hills.

We need to get you on instagram. This thread + your construction updates + crane things would be a great instagram to follow. Myself and a few others on here that have instagrams would agree with this.

I signed up for one years ago but I can't remember my password and every time I try to use my email they tell me it's already in use, yeah me. I end up going around in circles and just give up.

Let's see...

 

On a crane or something near where Brays bayou hits Buffalo Bayou... near bridge on Broadway / Harrisburg Blvd over Brays Bayou?

No, you got the location exactly right. Originally Bludworth Bond Shipyard, then got bought out by Halter Marine, a year later became Friede Goldman Halter then Bollinger Shipyard and now run by Southwest Shipyard.

Is this at Navigation / Broadway and Hockley? Is that the same crane that is there now?

Ah, great. I spent too much time trying to figure out what the business was, but Google Maps / Streetview was not cooperating!

Well, helium is used for MRI magnets and other medical uses, so I would assume somewhere in the Medical center, but I can’t find any location that looks like this on Google maps.
