Friday Group Photo Feature: The Corner of Bellaire and Bissonnet

Many thanks to our talented and dedicated contributing photographers this round: russell.hancock, can-da-chee garcia, elnina909, and lulubird24. They ventured boldly into the Bellaire Triangle, and came out — with this feature!

Here’s their group portrait, and Swamplot’s 6th photo feature. All photos taken within 500 ft. of the intersection of Bellaire Blvd. and Bissonnet St.

How’s it looking?


Here’s a slideshow of all the photos that were submitted:

This will be the last group photo feature before the holidays. We’ll hope you’ll join us again next year on these picture-taking excursions around the city. In the meantime, the Swamplot Flickr pool remains open for your freeform contributions!

  • This is excellent. I live about 2/3 of a mile from this intersection, in Bellaire, in a newer home. I was worried that the recent bad weather (snow, fog, cold, etc) would turn this exercise into a disaster. But these photos, taken in combination, really capture the feel of this intersection very nicely; while the photo of the residential home reminds you that there is a very different type of life just a block or two inside. (I also love that one photo with the Williams (Transco) Tower peeking out. One of these days I’m going to take a photo of every conceivable corner of Houston where that tower can be seen looming in the background…).

  • @J.V – There’s a coffee table book about Williams Tower with lots of photos from all over the area. You should check it out. It’s pretty cool.
