    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Passage Going To The Alamo.

    This is the small corridor beside the main gate that leads to the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas. Thank you very much for viewing.

    Good one Willie. Lovely presentation of light and tone.

    What do you think about a crop to a ratio that would mirror the ratio of the opening at the end of the passage? It looks about a 5:4.

    I really like it -- such wonderful textures. You're coming up with some great things from your trip.

    Willie! This is beautiful - very pleasing to look at. The colors and textures feel rich, to me. (Lush, actually, and, this, in the Alamo!) The symmetry, of course, just adds to it. It makes me want to be there and find out what's at the end.

    Thanks, Donald. That's a good idea. I'll try that ratio later. I was interested primarily on the wooden beams that's why I kept it in the landscape mode. I'll work on that idea tonight. Thanks for viewing.

    Yup, it is in the Alamo. If only they were kind enough to allow photographs inside that would be great. At least I was able to get some good shots outside.

    That is a cool shot. I get lost looking down the tunnel/hall thingy. I keep trying to see where it goes. Nice.

    Mary... or Lucy... either is fine with me. ;)

    Re: Passage Going To The Alamo.

    Very nice. It makes me want to visit and see what's at the end. This is not how I would picture the Alamo in my head. The beams, colors, and textures make a nice image.

    Thanks for the warm comment, Mary. Actually, everyone is looking at the main gate of the Alamo. When we were in line, I saw this corridor and there was no sign that prevents me from going in so off I go to take the shot.
