The Houston Independent School District recently opened the flagship Kinder High School For The Performing and Visual Arts in downtown Houston, Texas. This high school is a premier public school for students who are visual artists, dancers, actors and actresses, musicians, and creative writers. You will be hard pressed to find a public school that is this awesome anywhere in the world. Here are a collection of photos from the recently opened school. You will see the theater and two smaller practice theaters, library, relaxing area, exercise room, dance room, stage creation room, costume room, commons area, print making room, control area, orchestra room, some night snapshots, and a little history just to name a few. If you plan on attending, practice your craft for auditions, because as little as 10% make the cut to attend this great school. All photos 2019 Albert Moyer, Jr. Photography

My father recently passed and one of the greatest gifts he ever taught me was to eat well. Whether it was a simple pot of beans, or the finest steak, my dad always stressed that good food was one of the many secrets to living a great life. Dad would by a $5 pair of sneakers for a $15 steak. He had his priorities straight. Food before anything else. The Central Market in Houston was one of my dad’s favorite grocery stores. It has just about anything a person could want in the way of food. Rarely do people sit around a table today and enjoy a great meal as a family. It is a dying tradition that in my opinion is causing many of us to die. Family meals and the bonding and sharing that go along with them are vitally important. I decided to shoot a few photos to share of my dad’s favorite grocery store. The purpose is two fold. One to is to promote this great place Central Market and two to stress the importance of great eating and spending time together as a family. If you do not know how to cook, no worries, their are plenty of YouTube videos and cookbooks. Do learn how to cook and make food a part of the great times of life.

Seasons often change landscapes and plant life leaving the photographer many options year round. Today I made a trip to the Houston Arboretum to hike and photograph what I found to be beautiful. I hope you enjoy this collection of photos as much as I do. Thank you for viewing.

I have eaten so many Mexican dishes in my lifetime and I must say the food at Hugo’s Mexican Restaurant exceeded all my expectations. The service also exceeded my expectations. My group started with Chaupulines or Grasshopper tacos, and Queso Flameado which was cut and divided among four tortillas. We also had Cabrito/Goat, Barbacoa/Lamb, and Carnitas/Pork along with many great salsas and condiments. The Churros for dessert where amazing! Dulce the Leche and Chocolate! Oh, my! So awesome!

Here are a few photos from my trip. Thanks for reading and visiting my blog.

Garson Persian Restaurant offers a variety of awesome dishes and some fine belly dancing too. Do to a lack of time I will not write much about them, but I do believe the photos speak for themselves. The food is delicious and fresh as can be! For more information visit them here http://www.garsonhouston.com/

Peru Express Cafe in Houston, Texas offers some of the tastiest food I have eaten. It was my first experience with Peruvian food and I just loved all the dishes, especially the lightly-breaded seafood platter. The salsas were quiet different than what I am used to, but bursting with flavor. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere casual, but best of all is the wonderful service.

The Houston Bicycle Museum is a really great place to view racing bikes, BMX bikes, recumbent bikes, historical bikes, lowrider bikes, art bikes, etc. Interestingly, I just learned of their imminent closure until they find a new space. New spots for the museum have rent costs three times more expensive which could pose problems. They have to leave their current site by October 18, 2018 due to a parking lot expansion for the Holocaust Museum. I really hope they find funding and a new location because the history behind bikes is really amazing. If I were a billionaire, I would give them a million A.S.A.P., but sigh, I am not.

Here are a few photos from my visit and some of my favorite bikes. A chopper, a wooden one, an artsy one, a Asian style one, a musical one, a lowrider one, Lance Armstrong and Tour de France, and a room view.

The last two days have been amazing! What a privilege to witness a piece of history that included the life of Mrs. Barbara Bush, former First Lady, and America’s Grandma. I have always admired her as a person and I knew I could not go without witnessing or taking a few photos of the repose trip that left Second Baptist Church and funeral procession today. There were so many stories about Mrs. Bush and she was loved by so many on both sides of the political aisle. The first two photos are not mine. They are from the card given to guests during the repose viewing at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church. I would say may she rest in peace, but knowing Mrs. Bush she is probably already teaching the angels to read in heaven.

In continuation of landscape photography I shot these photos while out on Lake Houston. Thank you for stopping by.

Cremation, embalming, mummification, burial, hearse wagons and motor vehicles. Presidents, Hollywood stars, The Pope, Day of The Dead, and many other historical descriptions and displays of last rites and burial. There is so much to learn and see that two hours will just get you a nice walk around and coverage of the building. If you really want to read and learn you can spend a couple of days at the museum. It is a wonderful museum regarding all things dead and the history behind what we do today. I must say my favorite part was the tribute to George Barris the King Of Custom cars and the original Batmobile. I highly recommend it! Here are a few of the 192 photos I took at the museum.
