We found ourselves at the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas last Saturday around sunset and I took this photo. I did a lot of work on it in Photoshop to remove all the security ropes (and some tourists) and to correct the perspective distortion resulting from not being able to stand directly in front of it (because of the security ropes) to take the photo. I know most folks have already seen a lot of Alamo photos but I hope I did a good enough job on this one to hold your attention for at least a few seconds! :-)
