My husband being in the Army has its perks. We got to go on a couple’s retreat to San Antonio and stay in the St. Anthony Hotel for a few days. It was a beautiful place in a really awesome city, with many opportunities for great photos. My camera was glued to my face almost the whole time we were there. The following are some of the self portraits I was able to capture during our little mini-vacation.

“All photos are accurate.  None of them is the truth.”  ~Richard Avedon

“Reverie is not a mind vacuum.  It is rather the gift of an hour which knows the plenitude of the soul.”  ~Gaston Bachelard

“History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days.”  ~Winston Churchill

“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.” ~Albert Einstein
