DOWNTOWN

This morning I took the MetroRail downtown for a walkabout to see what I could see.
 
 They keep the temperature on the MetroRail somewhere around freezing.  I'm surprised I didn't see meat on a hook. Anyway, when I got off at the Convention Center my lens immediately fogged up when I hit the street. Here's looking west toward Congress.
 

 
Under 35 looking back toward the Downtown station.

Memorial to Vietnam Veterans
 
While walking around I discovered the Texas State Cemetery on 8th street. The grounds are simply beautiful.   

One view of the grounds.
 

 
At the east end of the cemetery there's a hill and on top is a place where you can sit, rest, meditate, pray, become quiet or just zen out. This is the view from that spot.
 
 
 
Brick and mortar - Steel and glass
 
I walked around for three hours so more images to come.
 
Thanks for stopping by.
