Fisheye Houston

This is the area that Enron developed in Downtown Houston before it imploded. It's now owned by the asses at Chevron that sicked a security guard on me and told me I couldn't take pictures there because they owned the sidewalk. I finally got the security guard to admit that the rules were total BS and that he was just doing his job. Didn't make any difference any way since I already had all the shots I wanted so it wasn't worth the fight. [WARNING] If you use a tripod it's guaranteed to attract security guards anywhere day or night. Yet I could have stood on this corner all day with an iPhone 5 taking 8 megapixel pictures and no one would say a thing. Later on that same day Houston Police asked for and ran my ID while taking pictures of Downtown Houston on the sidewalk of a bridge.
