by Parker Lasseigne / January – March 2005
Hello folks! Parker Lasseigne here, and with me is the long delayed Houston Slices of America. I have been living in Houston now for five years, and I have never taken a single picture of the city for the site, until now. The occasion – I have recently made a serious upgrade in my photographic equipment, so this seemed like the perfect testing ground before I begin traveling on photography trips. These pictures were taken from January – March of 2005. I would have been done sooner had the weather cooperated.
Houston is pretty accurately depicted here. I tried to get all of the major locations and points-of-interest. The only big thing I left out was the NASA Space Center. I know, that seems like a big one to leave out, but it’s not the most photogenic place in town, plus it’s really far away.
Before we begin, I would like to thank the Houston Film Commission for helping on certain locations. I would also like to thank Eric and his security folks at the Wedge International Tower for their extremely generous cooperation in letting me use their rooftop for shooting the Houston skyline and other aerial shots. I would also like to thank the Wells Fargo Plaza for their semi-cooperation in additional skyline shots. On to the slices…
