A Grand Adventure Is About To Begin…

My daughter is giving me the grand tour of her new hometown. We are driving around downtown Houston and I am snapping photos as fast as a girl could go. She is showing me the skyline of this magnificent city! I have been always drawn to the metropolitan cities and now it is going to be even more delightful visiting Little Man and his family! My daughter and her family have a whole new world opening up to them and as Pooh said…

A grand adventure is about to begin…

One of my favorite photos of the day…The Houston Pavilion. Look at all the converging lines! Oh be still my heart. The vintage bowl sign is the icing on the cake. 
Most of the downtown area is medical centers, hospitals and organizations of Baylor University. Did you know they employ 80,000 employees? Is that incredible? They take medicine and health to a whole new level. As my daughter was showing me around, literally my mouth was just hanging open. I have never seen such a Medical Maze in my whole life. So I ask my daughter, “Are you going to have to leave an extra 30 minutes just to find a parking spot and arrive at your laboratory?!”  She just turns to me and smiles.

One of the parks for the medical employees to enjoy…very unique cube building wouldn’t you say?

Praying this adventure will be a great blessing to our daughter and the family.

What has been YOUR latest adventure?

Have a marvelous day!

  1. If you relax your inhibitions and allow yourself to respond naturally to your thoughts, attitudes and emotions, your facial expressions will be appropriate and will project sincerity, conviction, and credibility. 4 stars on most sites, with great feedback from satisfied customers. Chopped nuts add flavor and a bit of a crunch to the cookies, too.

  2. Most people associate it with what birds eat, but more and more people are discovering the great nutritional benefits of it — it certainly isn’t good for just birds. In the Nashville Comfort Food test kitchen we use Cuisinart’s Electric Skillet, Food Processor, Blender and 7 Quart Stand Mixer. She is allergic to milk so I had to search for a vegan buttercream.

  3. 80,000 employees? WOW! Looks like an amazing place! Good luck to your daughter and her family in their new hometown.

    Thanks so much for joining us in the Nurture Photography Challenge. We’re moving on to a new prompt on Friday: White/Minimalism. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

  4. I’ve driven through and around Houston a few times. I always think of Gateway computers in Houston. And big oil. It’s a wonderful city with lots of fine arts too. She’ll love it! {:-Deb

  5. I love that you’ve posted in Black and White Laurie, what a great creative choice. Congratulations to your daughter and her family for starting a new adventure. Houston looks like a great community. I also fancied the vintage bowling sign….I think they should just make everything new ‘vintage looking’ 😀

  6. Love the photos – the B&W makes everything stand out beautifully. I’ve never been to Houston but it looks like it has some amazing architecture. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Houston is a big place! It’s been years since I’ve been there even though I don’t live very far away. Hope your daughter will enjoy it there — Houston has a lot to offer!
    Love your shots, the black and white and the awesome angles!!

  8. Love black and white shots. . . uh yeah, cause we have a B&W photo challenge every week! As far as adventure goes. . . we are (my husband) recovering from eye surgery since the end of last year. It’s a slow process, but God has been so good to us!

  9. Hmmmmmmm my latest adventure? Would have to be taking our new puppy for his forst walk up the lane and him meeting the horses! My ABC is all about Bing so there should be quite a few adventures along the way! Great post, thanks so much.

  10. WOW… Those are some pretty amazing photos. It’s so cool how they are all in B&W. How wonderful to work in a place like that. Seems like they must really value there employees.


  11. Welcome to my home town. Please check the “Houston” “Art Lovers” and “Texas” menu buttons in the header of my site.

  12. Looks like an amazing place to work. I wish your daughter the best of luck there. Great building shots. The one with the bowling sign is my favorite. Love that they are in b&w too.

  13. I recently learned my oldest will be making a job change and moving to Texas. I believe that is my latest adventure as seen through his eyes. 🙂

  14. I somehow stumbled onto your site, Laurie, and what a blessing! I love your photography, along with what I’ve had a chance to read on here, so far! I’m fairly new here on WP, and (I suppose you could say I’m in the midst of my latest ‘adventure’!) I am in the process of getting a small photo business going. It’s a new season in life, and I’ve been practicing for sometime, and thought I’d give it a go! Anyway, I preferred the layout here on WP, compared to my other site, but I had trouble working my way around, so I put it on the shelf for a bit, then came back to find they had made it much less complicated, so now I’m back at it again! It still has taken me some time, but I do think I’m getting the hang of it! Looks like we’re using the same theme, so, if I have any questions …. Lol!!

    I really love the creamy tones of these b/w city scape images. You captured the beauty of those buildings perfectly … and yes, I love the vintage bowl sign, as well! Anything retro/vintage … oh, I love it!! We have family in Texas, and have talked of moving there. We are empty-nesters, and that certainly would be the beginning of a grand adventure for us, for sure! I wouldn’t want to leave my son and his new bride, just yet, though! Maybe we’ll just pack them up and take them along, too! My son is a videographer, and has had opportunities arise from there, as well. We’ll just have to wait and see what the Lord has in store for us! I’ll be following you and I look forward to visiting again! Blessings to you!

  15. Laurie, this post looks awesome in black & white! Houston looks very impressive and their children’s hospital dwarfs our general hospital… We’re getting a new hospital beside our college, which is walking distance from us but it won’t be as big as that one!

    Blessings ~ Wendy

  16. Congrats, wonderful b/w photos, my favourite one is the second with the vintage bowl!! I love to watch photos and if they are accomponied with stories like here it seems that I can hear the snaps… I will reconnect! Thank you also for your visit and the like. I have to translate my home page, but my recent posts are all in English, just in case… 🙂 Friendly greetings from Italy, Katharina

  17. Another place I’d like to visit…
    My latest adventure was in my backyard – playing with my girls in the snow this past weekend!
    Have a great week 🙂

  18. My daughter thought seriously about attending Baylor. She didn’t in the end. But today she just started working at a hospital up here in PA. That is our recent adventure.

  19. Totally going to share your beautiful photography with my oldest son! He just finished a 3D architecture enrichment class at a new STEM high school…and his part of their group project was to design a HOSPITAL. So, I’m going to show him your photos for inspiration. (He’s done with the class but finds enjoyment in tweaking with his design.) Thanks for linking up to our first blog hop ever!

  20. Amazing medical facilities. What a wonderful opportunity for your daughter and family. A new and exciting page in their life.

  21. Call me nuts, but I adore hospitals! Dreamed about being a M.D. since I was a little girl, but I’m too sentimental and anxious. Did two years in Med. School and dropped out… Sigh. Ended up graduating in Culinary Arts.

    All photos are amazing! There is a “je ne sais quoi” factor in black and white photography… Keep them coming! 😀

  22. I love this post a great deal because I adore black and white photography. When a photo is changed to black and white, I look at the picture much closer than I would if it was in color because you are trying to imagine the colors. The buildings seem to pop that you took in Houston, not to mention how the clouds are more defined too in black and white. Thanks ever so much for sharing!

Please share your thoughts...and thank you for the love!
