Once the home of Enron, Chevron has now taken up residence in these very reflective buildings in downtown Houston. I know this because a security guard on the street informed me that Chevron would “prefer” that I didn’t take pictures of their buildings. Well, Chevron, I would prefer not to pay $2.50 for a gallon of gas so I guess we can’t have it all, can we?
In any case, I continued to photograph the buildings despite Chevron’s misgivings. The security guard seemed somewhat embarrassed about making such a ridiculous demand. After all, he was only following orders so I reassured him that I wasn’t a terrorist or engaging in some type of corporate espionage.
I do find it laughable though that a company thinks they can demand someone stop taking photos from a public sidewalk of a building that’s in plain sight. Perhaps they should put out a notice demanding the immediate removal of any image featuring the Houston skyline.
End of rant. Back to happyland.
