After seeing James Turrell’s Skyspace multiple times while walking around Rice’s campus I decided to photograph it. I had to visit it twice because the first time I went the light show did not go off (Tuesday’s it doesn’t do it). Check out some of his other work on his website here: http://jamesturrell.com/
1400 Smith St. & 1500 Louisiana St.
Some photos of 1400 Smith St. & 1500 Louisiana St.
Walking around downtown trying to find different angles on these two buildings was a bit of a challenge. 1400 Smith and 1500 Louisiana were both formerly headquarters to Enron. Both buildings are now used by Chevron, with a third planned 50-story, 1.7 million SF tower proposed by Chevron designed by HOK.
1400 Smith was developed Brookfield Properties and designed by Lloyd Jones Brewer & Associates, completed in 1983.
1500 Louisiana was developed by Hines and designed by Cesar Pelli & Associates, completed in 2002.
Contemporary Arts Museum Houston
Some recent photos from the Contemporary Arts Museum. Designed by Gunnar Birkerts and opened in 1972.
I also did a few “speed edits” to show how I edited a couple of these in Photoshop CC 2019. Videos below. There are a lot of things I could’ve done differently that probably would’ve saved time and been more efficient but I figured these were good enough to test my new-to-me screen recording software (OBS Studio).
Wortham Tower (formerly called American General Building) designed by Lloyd, Morgan, & Jones was completed in 1965. It’s named after Gus Wortham, insurance tycoon and oil baron who founded American General.
Recent photos from Rice University’s campus.
Phillips Exeter Academy
I made a trip out to Phillips Exeter Academy while in New Hampshire. It’s an old private boarding school dating back to 1781. Phillips Exeter Academy is probably best known for their massive library designed by Louis Khan in 1971, but the whole campus was amazing. Here are some photos from my trip.
The Glassell School of Art
Some recent photos of the Glassell School of Art and Museum District. There's been a lot of construction in front of the building on Montrose, so I plan on going back later to shoot the exterior a bit more.

Houston Skyline Timelapse
Day to night time-lapse of the Houston skyline. I had my intervals too long so it's a little too quick but it still turned out interesting.
