Pergola, Spanish Governor's Palace, 2004
Canon 10D, Zenitar 16mm fisheye. The Spanish Governor's Palace is an unassuming stone structure on San Antonio's Plaza de Armas, and its first portions were built as early as 1715. Spanish governors in colonial Texas lived modestly, except compared to their subjects, many of whom lived in primitive jacales made of sticks and mud up into the early 20th Century. The Palace now sits facing City Hall.
