At the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas

I flew into San Antonio, Texas tonight for the NAESP conference (National Association of Elementary School Principals).

I happen to be staying in the Emily Morgan Hotel, and am fortunate enough to look out right over top of the Alamo. I took a stroll around at about 11ish local time and snapped a couple of night-time pix.

The church building at the Alamo site, seen from the side originally within the fort:

An oak tree I saw illuminated by dim spotlights:

An Alamo memorial. I took this with night-mode and held the camera as steady as I could, leaving the shutter open for about a second and a half:

A scene commemorating the Alamo. Again, night mode with a long shutter.

Davy Crockett’s name on the memorial …
