This is my in-law’s inner-city Houston neighborhood street close to sunset. The neighborhood is close to 80 years old. Me and my family visit my husband’s elderly parents, at least, every Sunday afternoon. It’s often a sad trip because my once active mother-in-law is unable to walk, is ill, and needs extra care. My father-in-law is still physically strong and able to care for her and is stubborn about letting anyone else help. Which, in a way, I think is a beautiful thing. They have been married for more than 40 years. Our visits make them happy and give us a chance to lend a hand where its needed and wanted. As we left one Sunday, a few weeks ago, I saw this view and snapped a picture of their sunset street. Photo taken using iPhone 6.

This is one of two stairwells in the building where I work. Since I work sitting down most of the day, I’m trying to take these stairs at least once or twice a day to keep active during the workday. I decided to make the photo black and white to emphasize the lines and pinwheel effect where the flights of stairs meet.
As I stopped at a light driving home after work, I saw this bird gathering. The sunset in the background made this sight extra special.
On my way out of my university campus last Wednesday, I saw these deer crossing the road. I quickly took my iPhone out and snapped this photo before more cars came along. The shot was taken from the inside my car behind the windsheild, so you may notice what look like little orbs in the photo. Those are dry rain drops on my windshield. Through my eyes the deer looked much closer than they do in the picture, but I was afraid to use the zoom on the iPhone and distort the scene and lose my chance to capture this moment.You can click on the picture for a closer look.
Last week during my lunch hour, I took a fast food drive-thru and saw an unusual car. I saw a zebra car through my rearview mirror and decided to take a picture while I waited for my food.
And here’s a closer look at the zebra car by cropping the original picture.
I like going this way. My family and I went this way when we drove to Enchanted Rock Park near Fredericksburg, Texas, during Spring Break vacation 2010. Along the way we saw this sign. I just had to take a picture. I didn’t know there was a place called Comfort. Click on the photo for a larger image.
This post is my first attempt at Cee’s Which Way Challenge. It looks like a fun challenge that is not limited to a particular weekly theme. This challenge simply focuses on traveling paths (steps, sidewalks, roads, bridges, signs, etc…). You can click on Cee’s badge at the bottom of the post for more direction on the challenge.
Houston, Texas, has a maze of freeways and roads. A couple of which I take everyday for my commute to and from work. Traveling these freeways can be a job all by itself. I took the photo below while traveling with my family one weekend over one of Houston’s major freeways, I-59 South.
On this section of the freeway it’s nerve racking trying to get on the correct lane to get to where you want. Both of the paths look like exits, but only one is considered an exit. I really think the left one is the exit. What once was one freeway becomes two. I played around on PicMonkey to give it a little dazed and confused look.
