While the Mister and our younger son enjoyed sweet slumber last Sunday morning in our hotel room, I ventured out to clear my head during a five-mile walk on the University of Texas at San Antonio’s campus.
I made sure to wave when I walked past my older son’s dorm, not that he was stirring at that early hour.
There was little activity on campus as I walked and not much that caught my eye and my iPhone 4’s camera. Oh, I did admire this beautiful mural (by Santa Contreras Barraza) on the ceiling of a small rotunda outside the biosciences building.
As well as this interesting metal sculpture, which was near the mural. Otherwise, the landscape was fairly unremarkable.
Unless you were into cacti! I found patches of the prickly pear variety almost everywhere I walked. It’s the one plant that actually is thriving during our drought.
I was particularly intrigued by some of the cacti, which were sprouting red fruit.
Not only was the fruit’s color a nice contrast to the cacti’s green, but it definitely gave a lift to the parched, brown grass.
It gave my photographic spirits a lift, too!
