Under construction

It feels like everything downtown is under construction.  This surface lot at Main and Pecan Streets is now a big mountain of dirt with heavy equipment around and on top of it.  Nice shot of the Rand Building in the background.

Still painting!

They're almost finished with the red and most of the yellow.  Still need to repaint the purple.

Lights Alive!

 I went to the Lights Alive Christmas lights display off Culebra the other night.  The lights were cool but the music was too modern.  I would have preferred more traditional music instead of Christmas dubstep.

Repainting the Enchilada Red


Renovations to the Central Library have begun with repainting the iconic "Enchilada Red" exterior.  The paint color is officially "Hot Pepper" but there was a contest before the library opened in 1995 to put a unique name on the color of the library.  "Enchilada Red" won.
What was second place, you ask?

"Li-berry red."

San Antonio snow

It snowed on December 7 - the earliest recorded snowfall for the Alamo City.  I thought I would drive around downtown and watch it fall.  It looks more like rain through my windshield.

Emma Stone?

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