Just past Annunciation Parish Church is Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros.
Looking west towards come of the city's skkyscrapers, one can see that some were scraped by Ike.
Drove by Minute Maid several times looking for a good place to park and to set up. Saw a number of Houston Police ... maybe looking for someone or else practicing some sort of capture tactics (one officer was driving slowly in a left curb lane with his left foot outside of the car). So, I looked for a church and a safe place to take a gigapan. In retrospect, I may return here again to this area, but never after the sun begins to sink in the west. I counted 6 police cars over the time I was there, which was maybe 40 minutes.
Just as I was finishing, a mother, her son and his grandmother were taking a stroll and I was happy to see them and when asked, they agreed to be in my downtown Houston panorama.
