HOUSTON
Through the Lens of Lauren Meyers

Houston Texas dramatic bridge ove Ship Channel
Almost everyone who has lived there has had a love-hate relationship with Houston. The city has always had a habit of building new even before the sheen of the recently-built had time to dull. These photos of what was once called "Space City" is our latest in a series of photo essays of Texas' larger cities by photographers who are intimate with their surroundings. Houston photographer and preservationist Lauren Meyers has taken the time to submit these these images of her city so that we might share them with our readers. - Editor

Photographer's Note:

"I think that Houston encompasses the best and worst of most things. It is large enough to be home to a very diverse population and culture, and is also home to great educational, arts, museums and parks. Houston also has a relatively short history, which is unfortunately becoming increasingly paved over (literally!) as time goes by. I only hope that with the progress of the new, the old can be preserved and appreciated as well." - Lauren Meyers
