Looking upwards, is something many of us don't do nearly enough, so these pics are particularly interesting. Those tall buildings really do form a kind of elegant-looking canyon, don't they.... wow, quite dizzying.
Thank you for sharing Quad, we always enjoy your photos.
Really...? To be honest, the thought did occur to me, because I could see that it would have been quite an awkward position for the neck. But then I thought no...Quad wouldn't be lying down in the middle of the street....Quadophile said:Was not looking upwards, just lying flat on the ground and it made it easy to compose

I'm impressed Quad. You will clearly go to any lengths to get a good photo. A true artist!!
Well I spent almost half a day to get those shots not to mention, driving 15 miles to the Hermann Park first and parking my car there. I took the metrorail to downtown in order to avoid the traffic and also avoid the congested parking garages in downtown. All in all a rewarding experience shall we say?
Here is a link to the pictures in the DPReview forum, I received very good feedback from some veterans there.

Your extra effort was certainly worth it and produced stunning results.
The comments of the photographic veterans are well deserved imho - though your response regarding that - cough - "lamp post" gave me a chuckle!
Thanks for including the pics of the Metro Rail. It looks like it would be a good way to get around the city. Quiet and clean (unlike some of our rattling, smokey, diesel buses. Though, to be fair, they're probably better than they used to be. These days, they would mostly have to conform to the rules about vehicle emissions, etc. But I still don't think they would fare too well in a "beauty contest" against Huston's Metro Rail.)
Nice pics Quad
Did you really lie flat on your back on the pavement (sidewalk)?
If so didn't you get any funny looks? Wouldn't it have been easier to lay the camera on the ground for a time delay shot?
And I hope you didn't mess up yer togs lying on mucky floor - ooooeeee
