...a photo a day (or so) from deep in the heart of Texas.

San Antonio is often known as the Alamo City, due to our most famous landmark, the Alamo. Just north of downtown is the Alamo Quarry Market, site of the old Alamo Cement Plant. The shopping center kept some of the original landmarks, including these old smokestacks. In the photo on the website, you can see how tall they really are! In a pretty flat city, you can see these from pretty far away sometimes.
