The Alamo

Recently I visited San Antonio to participate in the Popular Culture Association conference. Although I spent most of the visit indoors at conference sessions--really!--I found myself wandering along the Riverwalk and toward the Alamo more than once.

Here are a few visual reminders of the central historic district and Riverwalk one afternoon and evening in late April. The images are my attempt to capture the past caught within the present, the historic within the commercial, the juxtaposition of life surrounded by an aura of death.

It sounds more profound and artistic than my photos really are.
