Bexar County Line – Best of the Double Aughts – www.BexarCountyLine.com
Longish, slightly repetitive title, so I’m not settled on that. I started hitting San Antonio, first time, decades ago, then again – and again – for work. San Antonio has no skyline – whatsoever. As big towns go, population just topped two million, it’s one of the weirdest, most laid-back cities in the world. Relaxed, even by Austin standards.
The side-project was born from a necessity to record observations about the town. Not like Austin’s “Keep Austin Weird” mantra that’s virtually a corporate slogan now, no, San Antonio’s weirdness is more than skin deep.

Location, not so much hardware, but the motivation, or inspiration, that caused the image. What I wanted to capture and then the image itself, what was captured.
