I totally forgot to post this a couple of weeks back. I went out meet w/ some cousins out in the SA area. I really enjoyed checking out the Tower in SA and then zooming my digi camera to see the Alamo. We also visited the Riverwalk. SA def feels a lot more diversity then here in Austin.

Anyways here are some pictures that I wanted to share. Thanks SA for a wonderful weekend from a couple weeks ago.

Those are definately some excellent photos, not boring "tourist" photos at all!

Glad to hear your time spent in San Antonio was enjoyable.

I'm in Austin almost every other week so I appreciate what each city has to offer but I'm very jealous of of your very own Town Lake and Zilker Park!

San Antonio, having blown its aquifer dry years ago. is now taking water from several other locations in Central Texas.
When I lived in Bastrop County, Alcoa was dewatering the future lignite mines (is there a more dimwitted fuel than brown coal??) by lowering the water table for all rural residents in Bastrop County.
Naturally, the promise was made that they would improve any wells run dry by this exercise...
The water they pulled out was "sold down the river" to feed San Antone's insatiable desire for wastable water.
When you can't water your lawn or wash your car, flush your toilet or wash your dishes, the Riverwalk will still run, Hemisphere park will still flow.
Endangered night herons don't seem to mind.

most camera info is usually in the pictures properties. just save it and view the details. these were taken with a Panasonic DMC-FZ18. It will also give you additional info like the f-stop, shutter speed, ISO speed and any additional software used..
It says they were taken on 10 May 2007, so the date/time in the camera is probably off.
