This is the side of one of our downtown hotels, the Hilton Palacio Del Rio on San Antonio's Riverwalk. It's interesting how you can look at it different ways and see totally different things -- but it is balconies.

You have captured one of the most interesting images of the year. I no longer respond to the day to day pics we recieve from BP. However,your image stands out and deserves reconition. You have captured something on the order of the grand masters of painting. I can look at your image and get lost trying to find a balcony. Many thanks
