This gorilla in the Houston Zoo looks pretty bored as he gazes from his exhibit area. He has a red cloth around him that he was playing with.

It’s meant to look like a theater, but it’s a restaurant, on the Kemah (Texas) boardwalk. Kemah is on Galveston Bay, southeast of Houston.

Downtown Brenham (Texas) has a number of interesting buildings. Most of the downtown is quite nice, but I find some of the deteriorating old buildings like this one much more interesting.
