Houston River Oaks Movie Theater

Houston River Oaks Movie Theater -The Houston River Oaks Movie Theatre is a historic movie theater located in the River Oaks Shopping Center in the Neartown community in Houston, Texas, east of the River Oaks community. We were excited to find the River Oaks Theater is still in business. The River Oaks theater is a historic landmark and according to my other half its where she spent a good deal of her time in her early twenties so we had to stop and take a photo for nostagia sake. Just another street scene of this vibrant cityscape in downtown Houston. This was in the downtown part of Houston not sure if it is considered downtown or uptown Houston I don’t know where the line is located between the two areas.

Houston Skyline at Twilight

Houston Skyline at Twilight – Houston skyline at twilight right after the sun goes down and the lights come on the buildings in downtown Houston light up and you have the blue hour or twilight. The blue hour or twilight is when the sky is still blue and the lights shine through to show this vibrant city in downtown with this great skyline in the background. The Eleanor Tinley Park run along the Allen Parkway and Memorial Drive with the Buffalo Bayou snaking it way through the park. After dark you can see the lights at the Jamail skate park along the townhouses next to the Allen Parkway with a little light still from the sun set earlier still reflecting off some of the buildings. Houston has some of the tallest skyscrapers in the south, it is a city that was made from the energy industry. Some used to say Houston has it cows and it oil, but things have changed a lot since I grew up here for this vibrant diverse city with many business including banking, tech and several universities like Rice, University of Houston not to mention a top place for art, music, museums, and some top knotch sports team like the Astros and along with many others things to do and see in the city.

Fred Hartman Bridge BW

Fred Hartman Bridge BW – This image of the Fred Hartman Bridge in black and white as a pelican flys over is our photo of the day. The Fred Hartman Bridge in black and white really brings out the architecture of the bridges structure in this landscape image. This is another one of the cable stay bridges and the longest at 2.6 miles that have been built in Texas in the last twenty or so years. The other popular cable stay bridge is the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge in Dallas which has become a iconic site in the cities skyline. The Fred Hartman bridge crosses the Houston ship channel between Baytown and La Porte Texas. The bridge is the replacement for the previous Baytown tunnel because the ship channel need to be dug deeper to allow for larger ships to flow through the ship channel. I remember us driving through the Baytown tunnel on our way to the beach when I was a child and being afraid it would collape on us as we were going through. It was just my childhood claustrophobia kicking in as far as I know it never collapsed. It is certainly an impressive site to see new Fred Hartman Bridge in this Texas cityscape of the Houston ship channel.

Sunset at Fred Hartman Bridge

Sunset at Fred Hartman Bridge – This cable stay bridge called the Fred Hartman Bridge is located out side of Houston Texas in the ship channel. The bridge was built to replace the Baytown tunnel when the channel had to be deepen for larger ships. This unique architectural bridge was completed in 1995. The bridge was named after Fred Hartman the editor and publisher of the Baytown Sun from 1950-1974. We had a hard time picking which image to select of the sunset at Fred Hartman Bridge on the ship channel outside of Houston to put on our website we took so many. This bridge is 2.6 miles long and spans across the ship channel from Baytown to La Porte Texas. The ship channel bridge is a cable stay bridge and is the longest bridge of it type in Texas. This bridge is the 77 largest in the world and one of four in Texas. The wonderful sunset at the Fred Hartman Bridge today made it difficult to pick which images to showcase as we had this incredible sky as sun set over the bridge.

Sunset at Fred Hartman Bridge –  Another capture of the Fred Hartman Bridge outside of Houston which runs across the ship channel between Baytown and La Porte Texas. This is a very long bridge which runs about 2.6 miles. On this day we had been in the area and decided to go see if we could capture it and boy did we get an incredible sunset. This bridge replaced the Baytown tunnel which went under the water because they need it to be deeper, As a child we would drive through the tunnel and I was alway scare it would collapse on us.
