Let's Finish Houston Street

The Longhorn Waltz was really just a quick sideshow--the main event was the monthly Houston Street Fair.
The usual stuff happens--music and food and local arts and crafts for sale--plus the rodeo flavor permeating the scene like this impromptu horse ride.

Chuck wagons were in the middle of the street in front of the Alamo, cooking up grub for hungry folk to taste. I've had their stew and it was good.
I liked the cook's phone-camera technique: No need to get up and move further away when a little lean can get the job done.

The first time I passed this awkwardly-named booth (TexMex shish-kabobs I think) the backlit smoke grabbed my eye.

Later in the day it grabbed me again--my favorite photo out of all 14 I have shown.

Great picture with the smoke - if you could identify the guy in the picture, it would make a great Father's Day gift for his kids to give it to him all posterized.

(Assuming he is a father and his kids like him).
