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?

If you want to participate in our latest group photo feature, tonight’s the deadline! Submit your photos to the Swamplot Flickr pool by midnight. This time we’re looking for pix taken within 500 ft. of the intersection of Bellaire Blvd. and Bissonnet St. in Bellaire.
Make sure your photos are tagged “Bellaire & Bissonnet,” and that you haven’t disabled Flickr’s galleries feature on your account. Some great photos have already been submitted. Got any more to share?
More great photos have come in for our next group photo feature. Earlier this week we extended the deadline until next Thursday at midnight. There’s still room for your contributions!
Whatcha doing this weekend? If your plans include a camera or a cameraphone, we hope you’ll stop by the corner of Bellaire Blvd. and Bissonnet St. Take photos of anything you want — as long as it’s within 500 ft. of the intersection. Then upload your photos to the Swamplot Flickr pool, and tag each of them “Bellaire and Bissonnet” (with the quotation marks). (Also, please make sure the galleries feature isn’t disabled on your account.)
We’ll select the photos that together best represent that little neck of the woods for next Friday’s feature, and we’ll include all the submitted photos in a slideshow. It’s a fun way to look around Houston, corner by corner. Wanna give it a try?
Bellaire, what up? Swamplot’s next group photo feature is set to document the intersection of Bellaire Blvd. and Bissonnet St. And yes, it looks like Thanksgiving and uh, Blackout Friday might have got in the way. We’ve already got a few great photos in, but some of you could likely use an extra week to get your photos in.
So take it! Here’s a new extended deadline to submit photos — of anything you want, as long as it’s within 500 ft. of the intersection shown above: midnight on December 10th, a week from tomorrow.
As always, the Swamplot Flickr pool is eager for your submissions — just make sure they’re tagged “Bellaire & Bissonnet” (you’ll need to include those quotation marks), and that you haven’t disabled the galleries feature on your account.
Show us what you find!
Thanksgiving means you get an extra week to take photos for Swamplot’s next group photo feature. It’ll run on Friday, December 4th. Which means the deadline for getting your photos in will be 2 Thursdays from now: December 3rd at midnight.
What are we looking for? Your photos — of anything you like — snapped within 500 ft. of the intersection of Bellaire Blvd. and Bissonnet St. It doesn’t matter what kind of camera (or cameraphone) you use — just get out behind your lens and have some fun with it!
Upload your pix to the Swamplot Flickr pool when you’re done. Tag each photo with the phrase “Bellaire & Bissonnet” (you’ll need to use those quotation marks), and make sure you’ve got the galleries feature enabled on your Flickr account. We’ll feature the photos that together paint the strongest picture of the area, and we’ll include a slideshow of every image that’s submitted. What’s that little corner of
Houston er, Bellaire really like?
A big thank you to our photographers this week: russell.hancock, biggsbean, can-da-chee garcia, Lizard666, eg66tex, and xnomad. What’d they do? Capture an East End neighborhood on pixels for us.
And here is their work, all from within 500 ft. of the intersection of Harrisburg Blvd. & Wayside Dr.: Swamplot’s 5th group photo feature.
How does it look?

WHERE WE’RE HEADED FOR NEXT WEEK’S GROUP PHOTO FEATURE Got plans with your camera or cameraphone for the weekend? How about taking it out to the corner of Bellaire Blvd. and Bissonnet St. and using it to take some pix for next week’s group photo feature? That little corner of Bellaire is our next assignment.

Hey, all you East Enders: What kind of photos would you like to see in this Friday’s upcoming group feature? Our location this week is the intersection of Harrisburg Blvd. and Wayside Dr. And there’s still plenty of room for your contributions.
Even if you’re not from that part of town, it’s easy to participate: Just snap some pix of anything within 500 ft. of that intersection — with your cameraphone, even — and upload them to the Swamplot Flickr pool. (You can use the map above as a guide.) Tag your photos with “Harrisburg & Wayside,” and make sure your account doesn’t block other users from creating galleries. What you see is what we’ll get!
The deadline is Thursday at midnight. We’ll run with what’s come in on Friday.
Ready for a little east-side action? Find your way to the intersection of Harrisburg Blvd. and Wayside Dr. with a camera (or just a cameraphone!) and you can be a part of Swamplot’s next group photo feature! All you need to do is snap pix — of anything you want — within 500 ft. of that corner.
Upload your photos to the Swamplot Flickr pool, tag them with the magic phrase “Harrisburg & Wayside” (you’ll need to use those quotation marks to keep the tag in one piece), and make sure you haven’t disabled the galleries feature on your Flickr account.

We’ve already got a bunch of great images in for this week’s assignment — but there’s room for many more! How’s the corner of Hillcroft and Harwin looking?

Or if you like some of what you see and that inspires you to push the project further in a similar direction, you can do it — by adding your own shots.
Just send your images to the Swamplot Flickr pool, and tag them with the phrase “Hillcroft & Harwin” (yes, you’ll need to include the quotation marks). Make sure you haven’t disabled Flickr’s gallery feature. Add descriptions if you like. The deadline is midnight this Thursday.
