I've been to San Antonio a few times over the years on business trips (Air Force bases are there) & while I pride myself on seeing more than just the obvious landmarks, I never even knew about the missions. The arches are lovely and you've captured them so well. Very COOL snake and cool photographer, too. Tree snakes - hmmm. I think I prefer them on the ground.
Tash: Next time check them out! If you can, go for the late light. It really makes the buildings look beautiful. I just lucked out seeing that snake! It was probably the most exotic animal I saw on the trip.
Visiting the missions in the late afternoon light was a great compromise over not getting to see the Alamo that evening. You did a great job with these photos. Esp. that one of the padre (whose name is Tom, by the way); Virginia would be jealous!
Janet: Wow, you got his name? You are so much better with the strangers than I am!
