In about 2002, Janet and I started a project we had frequently talked about in the seventies and eighties—documenting the outdoor art in the Houston area. I did considerable research finding locations. Somewhere on some drive are my notes. Now I need to go back and find them because there was one location that we never managed to photograph. I don't remember the history but would like to know how it came to be.
Yesterday I picked up Debi when she finished her jury duty and we, as usual, started driving with no particular destination. I found myself on Hwy 288 headed south when I noticed an art park on the corner of 288 and Belfort—the one that Janet and I never photographed. It is an interesting place and I need to get back a couple of more times very early in the morning. A giant spider, giant chicken, strange creatures, Snoopy flying, hippo, rhino, King Kong, even a pick up truck hooked on a giant fishing pole and a stealth fighter—a very interesting place.
We finished off with coffee at the Catalina Coffee on Washington--which is now cheaper than Denny's!!!! Not going to pay Starbucks prices for Denny's coffee.
