Nice set of images! I prefer the first and third, equally, and then the second. Thanks for sharing them with us. :)

Thanks Rex for your comment. All of these were shot on a (very) warm summer vacation, and as soon as the temperatures rise close to 30 C, I start to take fewer pictures (and the pictures tend to get worse too). That's why there's quite a number of evening shots in this set.

I had to do the conversion; 30 C is about 86 F, a nicely mild afternoon temperature for a late Spring or early Autumn day here along the Texas coastal prairie. It is no mystery why tend to I favor evening shooting! :)

Should have taken the fact that you live in Texas into consideration before complaining about warm city days here in Europe, haha! I reckon you're more accustomed to it though, and the air humidity might also be different. Anyway, I very much prefer a nice winter, fall or even spring day to shoot pictures, and as you say: evenings. Love taking street shots at night!

Great shots! I like the first one a lot, though it does bother me that it's not exactly centered, but that's just personal :P

I think the second one is really good as well, it has a message quite true to a lot of businesses. My favorite is the 4th one though, I find the composition really nice.

Good job :)

Thank you Piero for all your kind comments!
I can see why you would want more symmetry in the first picture, but the street photographer in me could not resist including the group of three people in the bottom right corner. Moving back wasn't an option either, that would have included a lot of stop lights and cars in the shot. I would have used a wider lens if I had one, because it would indeed work better centred.

Hmm, I guess cutting off those people would've looked different as well, I don't know if bad, but different. Well, you did use what you had on hand and made a really nice picture of it, so in the end it's great either way :)
