I went to Galveston with a friend today but it was overcast.
Amazing to me of the architecture of the buildings. There were no markings on this building to tell you what it was ..People now inhabit the place, Many historical places of Galveston have plates on building for you to read but this one had none that I could find anyway, The brick columns look to me like little chimneys at the bottom
I captured the sunset between rail car lines at the Galveston Railroad Museum photography workshop which was hosted by the Galveston FeatherFest.
Seen in Moody Gardens at Galveston, Texas. Moody Gardens is Eye Candy!
This dock is located just next to the Galveston Causeway and Railroad. The original causeway was built in 1912 and carried both rail and auto traffic. You can see the original bridge on the near side. The auto traffic was transferred to new causeways built to the west in 1939, leaving the original bridge for rail traffic. The original route was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.
I would love to seat down at night by those benches located at the end of the dock, or seeing the sunrise drinking coffee. This morning I didn't get lucky it was overcast ;(
Located in Galveston, the Galveston Railroad Museum is a complex of historic facilities.
The museum is located at the west end of the Strand, the vast Railroad Museum includes one of the largest restored railroad collections in the southwest, and one of the five largest in the country. It includes more than 40 pieces of locomotives and other train cars. The museum is located in the 1930's Santa Fe Railway Station.
The Galveston Railroad Museum is a railroad museum owned and operated by the Center for Transportation and Commerce, a non-profit organization. The museum was established with funds from Galveston businesswoman and philanthropist Mary Moody Northen and the Moody Foundation.
The museum is located at 25th and Strand in Galveston, Texas. The museum has reopened after Hurricane Ike and is raising donations for matching grant money to restore the exhibits damaged. The museum has been approved for $200,000 in grants, but must raise $100,000 to receive them. That $300,000 will result in receiving $3,000,000 in rebuilding funds from FEMA. The donation deadline is September 30th, 2011.
It is housed in the former Santa Fe Railroad station, at the head of The Strand.
Work and life are both still crazy. Hoping to get up to Seattle in July sometime. If anyone has Mt. Rainier or Mt. Baker wildflower plans in the back half of July and would be interested in a meetup, let me know.
Cheers for now.

In Galveston wandering around last weekend, Marilyn & I spotted all these containers (shown up close in a previous post).....looks like lots of work was going on.....
There were very many houses like this one, in need of repair after Hurricane Ike ...
Converted gas lamps along The Strand in Galveston. Unfortunately that blank sign is almost exactly the background color for the web page, so its best to view against black.
A long exposure of the Galveston Pleasure Pier, taken with a Nikon D800 in 2013
I know this picture does not follow the 'rule of thirds' but I liked the colour of the sky and the rocks to much to crop either out.
