A few more shots from the Water Wall in Houston.

One of my favorite shots from this trip

Wish they wouldn’t look so happy all the time 😉

Williams Tower, across from the Water Wall

    Wow, having the kids in the shot really gives that wall a different perspective. It’s HUGE! So funny, the photo with the attitude. lol

    • Thanks, it IS huge! Yeah, that attitude always comes out when the camera is pointed at them.

  2. The building is the tallest tower not in a central business district. Love the shot just above the tower.

  3. I can see why that second shot is yoru favorite! It is fabulous! The wall looks great and I love Sara’s body posture. SHe really looks like she is just revelling in the moment!

    The shot with the two girls is priceless! Oh, how you torture them so! 🙂

    • Thanks Tracy. To me it looks like she’s dancing/twirling.
      And for the record: they’re torturing me more than I’m torturing them! 😉

  6. lol! Love that third shot and caption. And the reflections in the building in the last shot.

    That is a really big water wall!

  7. The second shot is great. I love her body positioning. A bit more carefree than the “happy” shot. While it was cool to get a shot with no people, having them gives it the proper scale. 😉

    • Thanks Scott. I have this thing about people in pictures who I don’t know…. I don’t want them there if at all possible. I prefer people I di know, even if they don’t always like to cooperate 😉
      The shot of the water wall in my previous post looks much better (to me!) without the strangers wandering around, and my family was busy with other things, so I just waited until the strangers left. I do agree, that having people in the shot gives the water wall a sense of scale… which you can see here 🙂

  8. I’m just echoing everyone else now, but I wanted to say how much I love the shots with the girls in them too – it was hard to picture just how big this place is without them in yesterday’s shots. The twirling picture is wicked cute!

  9. Wow, that thing is huge. You got so many cool shots of it. Impressive!

  10. This is fabulous ! I remember having stood there feeling so cool on a hot July day as a party for a pretty “quinceanera” were being photographed. Beautiful memories your great pictures bring back. Thanks Michaela !

  11. Yes, the second shot is just endearing. She almost needs a tutu; that posture says ballerina to me 🙂
