Flood Control

Flood Control - San Antonio, Texas

Flood Control – San Antonio, Texas

In early October, my wife and I went to San Antonio for a few days. It was Trinity University’s annual Fall Family Weekend, and with my two sons living in San Antonio, it was a perfect mini-trip. We stayed in a downtown hotel next to the famous River Walk.

Today’s image is from the San Antonio River Walk, an area off the beaten path, just beyond the restaurants and bars. However, it’s a critical infrastructure component. This dam is part of the system that prevents flooding and ensures a constant water level on the river.

I brought a new lens I purchased in September, the Fujifilm 16-80mm f4 — a perfect travel zoom. That, coupled with the Fuji X-E3, made for a versatile one-camera, one-lens solution. Beyond the convenient zoom range, the lens has remarkably capable in-lens image stabilization. I took this photo at 1/4 of a second, handheld, creating a wonderful motion blur of cascading water.
