At the Alamo, 1

I took this over the weekend at the Alamo. Something about this struck me because I have seen this kind of pair several times at places like county fairs, truck stops, and sporting goods stores. You have the rough male caring for a young boy, nurturing him and showing him all that he knows to be cool: motorcycles, good gravy, American history, and beef jerky are among some of the things this young boy will probably grow to appreciate because of this mentoring.

In this picture, you can see that the boy is holding a guided tour on a cell phone and listening to every word.

This isn’t the best photo in its quality: the whites are all blown out because I wasn’t prepared for the sun, but I was glad to catch this moment (as well as a few other good ones) in San Antonio last week.
