Happy St. Patrick's Day

Today's post is a series of photos taken downtown on the Riverwalk after the San Antonio River was dyed green this past weekend in honor of St. Patrick's Day. I wanted to get photos shortly after the river was dyed so the dye would not be too diluted. The first shot is of Durty Nelly's Irish Pub, located at the Hilton Palacio del Rio hotel. I took this shot from a landing on the stairs leading from street level down to the Riverwalk.

The second shot is of the Riverwalk and Casino Club Building. The Casino Club Building is, in my opinion, one of the most interesting buildings in San Antonio from a photography prospective. It is not very large, but is a unique design and there are not a lot of places that provide a good photo opportunity of the building.

The last shot is of one of the water falls along the Riverwalk, this shot was actually taken near the stairs that lead from the Riverwalk to North Presa Street near the Hyatt Regency San Antonio. This is probably my favorite shot that I took during the little excursion downtown, I like how the water looks very smooth (but green!) in the shot.
