Janet and I recently visited San Antonio, Texas. It was our first trip, and we had a great time. We spent time wandering along the San Antonio River Walk (the second-most popular destination stop in San Antonio). The first photograph is of a fountain made of lava rock. I photographed this fountain early in the morning, using a slow shutter speed to create a silky appearance to the water. I was fortunate to capture a red flower floating in the water (and no, I didn’t put it there !).
The second photograph is of an unusual shell fountain I found along the River Walk. It is located under a bridge, making the light even and diffuse. The workmanship on this structure is very impressive. This photograph can be found in my Catalog of products.
The last photograph is of the Alamo, the most popular destination spot for visitors to San Antonio. It just so happened that two “character actors” were available for Janet to pose between – and one of them handed her a musket for a prop! If you ever get a chance to visit San Antonio, do not miss walking along the River Walk. There are restaurants, bars, shops, and bridges to visit. There is even a water taxi scooting along the waterway to escort you to all the sights. Of course, the Alamo is a photographic gem. Be sure to catch the front of the Alamo in the afternoon – later is better, but the park closes at 5:30 pm. The afternoon sun lights it up delightfully. In the morning, the face is in shadow, and more difficult to photograph.
