Houston Revealed #22

The end is near! Prepare! Well, the end of Houston Revealed. We are doing a great job of wrapping things up here at the end. Congratulations to Christopher Holly for correctly identifying Revealed #21 as The Rice Hotel. Christopher also put the detective skills to work to figure out Revealed #15 as the Great Southwest Life Building. That is two more times that his name will go into the hat for our final prize drawing. The last prize up is a personal tour of the backstage workings of the Wortham Theater Center from the Wortham

Houston Revealed #21

Houston Revealed turns 21 today!!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations to Eric Nordstrom for correctly guessing that the photo was of the University of Houston Downtown Beacon in front of (coincidently) the University of Houston Downtown’s Commerce Street Building. By the way Eric

Houston Revealed #20

Well folks, we are in the home stretch. There are only five more Houston Revealeds left, so if you haven’t taken a stab at one of our photos, now is your chance. I hear a rumor that it might actually be sunny this weekend so you should get out and explore downtown!

Before we continue with #20, we have some acknowledgments. First congratulations to Chris Sunstrom for correctly identifying last week’s entry as the Julia Ideson building (the old library). AND we finally had a correct guess for Houston Revealed #6! Nancy Zamarron identified the location of the picture as Minute Maid Park. Whew. So we only have two pictures that haven’t been identified. I have a feeling that Chris Loudermilk will identify #15, but so far no takers on #14. It is hard and I’ll narrow it down and tell you that you should be looking in the theater district area. How’s that! I’m going soft here at the end!

On with this week’s photo. This was actually one of the very first ones that I took when we were discussing the idea. And here it is at the end. Do you know where this is?

Houston Revealed #19

All right peoples…

We gots three outstanding photos just waiting to be recognized! While Chris Loudermilk is doing his darnedest trying to figure out Revealed #15, we still need people to identify Revealed #6 and #14.

In happier news, Ryan Dionne is our winner for Houston Revealed #18 as he correctly figured out (in record time) the image is from one of the Seven Wonders sculptures designed by Mel Chin next to the Wortham Theater in Sesquicentennial Park. You know… as many times as I

Houston Revealed #18

Welcome to another week of Houston Revealed. We are already on #18. Thank you to everyone who has participated thus far. Congratulations to Christopher Holly who correctly guessed last week’s entry as the Bank One Center. Our main goal for this project is to get people to take a moment and really see downtown Houston. There is a lot to offer and I personally have discovered so much looking for sneaky pictures to take.

So, here is this week’s entry. I’ll accept several different answers on this one. You can tell me what it is, where it is or what building is next door. Good luck. Think creatively.

Houston Revealed #16

Uh oh! I might have jinxed the Houston Revealers. Two weeks ago I heaped praise on all of our participants for their eagle eyes. And now we have had two pictures in a row go by without a winner. Now I know…. everyone has slumps. You can snap out it. I’ll throw you an easy one this week.

Where in downtown Houston was this picture taken?
