HAIF Member Spotting

Have you ever met/encountered another HAIF forummer?

I saw you once, walking in front of my town house on Leverkuhn, which was right around the corner from your town house on Blossom, which was right down the street from where that couple was killed on Floyd, over the holidays.

You denied it was you when I mentioned it, but I knew it was you.

Not that I know of, but I may have. Though sometimes I do meet people that I would expect a person on here to act and then I imagine them as that person.

I was taking pics of the Menil Grounds last week, and I saw some other dude with a camera walking around, and taking pics, as well. I did not bother him, though(I thought he might have been from here, as well)...

Ever see The Shop Around The Corner or You've Got Mail? I can too easily imagine something like that happening. ("Oh, it's YOU! And yet you seem so nice in person...")

Surely, at least a few HAIF members would recognize me if they saw me. There aren't that many pedestrians in my neighborhood, and we tend to be memorable.

FWIW, the HAIF members I've met so far (3-4?) have all been polite, attractive, didn't smell bad and haven't stalked me. Nice people, all.

Unfortunately, comapred to the rest of Houson neighborhoods, it does have quite a few, atleast in the commercial areas. I saw one young dude walking in deep Westmoreland singing in a suit when I was taking pics. Most people stare at people who are taking pics but he looked as if it was a normal occurrence.

Whats GHPA ?

Greater Houston Preservation Alliance. More than likely a walking tour. Did anyone go to the Courtland Place walking tour? If so, I was the only black dude there. So you probably saw me. :D

If you guys ever meet on accident, how do you know that who they are? Do you ask them do they go to this website or what?

Ok I see now. By the way WesternGulf, when will the first 2006 Houston Picture thread be?

I don't know. Bought a new camera and I am playing around with it to get use to settings.

What kind of flag? Just in case someone see's someone else waving a flag and yelling "Me"?

Oh, and can't wait WesternGulf.

How about this one?

Maybe not. That's a bit 80s, isn't it?

Alright. And Red, that one's too big, he might play some sick game where they all yell "Me!"

No no, you got me all wrong, I have no intentions of making fun of anybody. Anyway, you are probably quite a bit older than me, so it would be disrespectful of me to make fun of you.

probably, if you were there before astros games or at 2:30am...

though when the firehouse existed, i wasn't very active on this board.

any chance i could swing by the Heights and get one of those phillies??

I was in Wal-Mart Supercenter looking at the digital cameras. I almost bought one, but I decided not to for two reasons.

First, cameras "make me shutter".

Second, I just couldn't "picture" myself with a camera.

I also encountered @cspwal taking pictures of the tower crane removal at the Marriott Marquis but at the time I didn't know it was him until he posted the pictures. We were both taking almost the same pics.

Thanks for the cringe y’all. Appreciate 15yo me from the past being bumped.

 

I’ve met a few more since then. There was an unofficial HAIF meet up around 2010 or 2011 I can’t remember. Then I met Naviguesser and decided that was enough HAIF members for a lifetime.
