BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 

reflections of the Niels Esperson Building. Once, this was the crown jewel of Houston's skyline, and today is the only full-blown example of Italian Renaissance architecture in the downtown. It is wonderfully detailed with columns, great urns, terraces, and a grand tempietto at the top similar to one built in 1502 in the courtyard of San Pietro in Rome. It is lit up at night. Because of its history, this structure is properly referred to in the plural.____will have to comment during day, had trouble with BP
