I had an enjoyable time in San Antonio this past weekend and what made it even better was trying out a Fujifilm X100S from Lumoid. Lumoid allows you to rent high end cameras and lenses. For me this is a great solution since I’m in the market for a higher end camera but not willing to make such an investment yet. I really enjoyed this camera because even if it is not a DSLR, it had a lot of great features, is quick to focus and a lot of editing features can be done right on the camera itself. After having it for just a few days I am in NO way an expert on this bad boy. I had to Youtube a lot of great how to’s in order to use this camera.
Now I am a big photography buff when it comes to buildings, urban environments and the mixing of old buildings with skyscrapers which is why I love San Antonio. They keep the old 1920’s style and history and mingle them with new world designs. Home of the 1960’s World’s Fair, San Antonio is a city that constantly evolves from before Texas was a republic with landmarks like the Alamo all the way till today as a tourist destination.
This church above is the mother church of the archdiocese of San Antonio and the seat of the archbishop. The original church of San Fernando was built between 1738 and 1750. The walls of that church today form the sanctuary of the cathedral, which gives rise to its claim as the oldest cathedral in the State of Texas.
One of my favorite places to visit and photograph
