Usually I try to avoid shooting the unsightly periphery of golf. Power lines, Pulte Homes, etc. Sometimes it’s unavoidable. It’s there, and there’s nothing anyone can do about it. (Westlake Dermatology would certainly disagree.) I vote for embracing the features we feel may be different, ugly, unworthy, distracting. They are part of the environment in person, so why not in photographs? These anomalies are what make us different, special, unique. They are what make us, us. Look at Heidi Montag. She has systematically removed every last cell of sex appeal in a long and expensive journey designed to achieve it. The poor thing.
The shot above is one from a couple of weeks ago in Houston. That’s Houston National Golf Club, up on the northwest side of town. Some very cool mounding around a relatively flat golf course. 27 holes and plans for another 9, which will change the whole place into a 36-hole facility with a private and a public course.
After spending a week in Houston, I’ve gained a new respect for it. The weather was PERFECT every day I was there. No humidity. 45-degree nights and 70-degree days. Maybe it’s always that way in Houston (LMAO). Normally in Houston, it’s not humid, it’s more a feeling of hummus.
