I've been trying but I'm not familiar enough with some of this to have gotten any before you did.  Funny thing though, this last one I recognized right away, but after you had already answered.

I sometimes think you have a GPS tracker on my bicycle because you find my spots so easy 🤣😜

Maybe, maybe not. 😎 Seriously, though, I like solving puzzles and I am pretty observant  - I guess it’s my engineering background. And I have done quite a bit of exploring around Houston myself, although not on a bicycle.

Great find, it's right next to the new Women's Hospital going up on OST. Here is the last one I took today. Let's see if your GPS is still intact.😜

Headquarters - 3302 Canal

That is the correct building, mural is actually on 137 Nolan St. but Google Maps still shows a gray wall. Nevertheless you are the winner.

Yes, that made this quiz particularly difficult! I overlooked this building at first because Google Maps doesn’t reflect the current view. There was actually a clue in this photo that helped to solve it:

Where Am I?

Well, I have to admit I am stumped. I would guess that it is on the UH campus given the background and your bike route, but can’t find any evidence of this piece being a part of their collection.

Ah, ok, just east of the College of Architecture building (I can’t figure out how to embed the map).

I could not find this listed as part of UH’s public art collection. Is it a student or faculty project?

I looked for a plaque but there isn't one, I too looked on the UH Public Art website and it's not on it. But here it is on Google Maps.
