Located right in the middle of the Houston east end shopping district, Harrisburg Plaza is a destination for shoppers in the region. With anchor stores Melores and Fallas Paredes, the affiliate stores have a strong draw to the center. The center is adjacent to a Go MetroRail stop, giving easy access to the shops. Managed by Weingarten Realty, Harrisburg Plaza has over ninth-six thousand square feet for retail.
We photographed this property in late fall, and since it’s a North facing complex we had to be on site at dawn (see our previous blog about photographing North facing buildings for more details). We were fortunate as we had a spectacular sky to work with. There were just enough clouds in the sky to give us some texture without being overbearing.
Our twilight shots turned out amazing thanks to a crystal blue sky. Being so close to the coastline, the land is very flat so the sky starts to illuminate early and stay that way for quite a while. This allowed us to photograph the entire site with this magnificent sky.
