San Antonio de Bexar

Images, served up, back-to-back, or better yet? With historical, maybe hysterical to some, perspective. New Mission Entrance… The Old View… and The New Version. Dates and the archive methods I use to curate images on the side-project vary. There are at least three years between those two images. Maybe more years, I never claimed accuracy. [...]

The street is “SE Military,” part of the defining car culture of San Antonio (Bexar County, etc.) The sticker read, “Hell Yeah!” Can’t see that much in this image, as I was on my way someplace. Still, I made the driver catch up so I could get some details. Somebody’s name, and the image, underneath [...]

San Antonio — as defined as Bexar County — is way weirder than Austin, but no one listens to me. Rosario’s is a famous TexMex place on S. Alamo. Across the street, last week? I grabbed this image and, to me, it looks like a “tobacco inhalation device,” as we’re not allowed to say “bong.” [...]

Least hipster places? Oh seriously? I realize it’s a rerun of that previous news but I was so greatly amused by this, “Least hipster places?” Seriously, people?

Several years ago, further back than I care to think, this image, migrated from San Antonio to a trailer in South Austin and became a touchstone. Parking was originally three dollars and the monthly subscription was $2.95 for 30 days, and it’s all changed around. Still, image, it’s a recent shot, same parking lot, same [...]

Unsure whether or not this needs to be rewritten, with elucidation, about Texas Weather and the Texicans. History shaped by weather. I have to wonder if there’s a TV references to this, Weather and History (Texas History) these days.

Sam Houston: “All new states are invested, more or less, by a class of noisy, second-rate men who are always in favor of rash and extreme measures, but Texas was absolutely overrun by such men.” Art on an empty downtown store front. Bexar County is cradle of freedom and civilization, in the Western United States. [...]

Warm winter afternoon, along San Antonio’s storied river, a giant Snowy Egret, and the problem with a cheap camera, phone in that example, is the inability to capture the big bird at its peak. Day before that shot, I’d seen, probably the same critter, feeding alongside one of the acequias, maybe a half mile further [...]
