Emma Stone?

This painting, on the backside of the Korova, reminds me of Emma Stone.

Pink Folyd?

Oh so close!  I loved their album, "Dark Side of the Mono."

Dancing With Myself

I saw this truck carrying electrical equipment and I was reminded of that Billy Idol video back in the 80's.

Schilo's Deli

The legendary Schilo's deli on Commerce Street.  It's been around for over 100 years.  If you stop by, have some pea soup and homemade root beer.

Continuing the theme...

This painted advertisement for Bell Furniture Company, featuring Quasar televisions, was painted on the north wall of the Wolfson Building.  It's not there anymore.  It burned in a fire in October 2011.  It used to be across Main Avenue from the Bill Miller at the corner of Commerce Street.

Fawcett Furniture

I always liked this old building on Dolorosa Street - especially the faded Coca-Cola advertisement.

Maguey gigante


This is a huge maguey, or agave, plant at the corner of Augusta and McCullough streets.  It's hard to convey in a photograph but it's at least eight feet tall.  Whenever I walk by, I fully expect it to say, "Feed me, Seymour!"

Pete on the street

I saw this little Pete the Cat sticker stuck to the ground in the San Antonio Public Library parking garage.
