The Shriner’s were in San Antonio this year for their annual convention. They’ve been doing all sorts of things all weekend and ended their visit today with a parade past The Alamo and through downtown.

I saw this man sitting on a stool and it just looked so icon to me with his surroundings and that bright red hat that I couldn’t resist a shot.

Staffer Tom Reel was assigned to cover it, but I decided to tag along. I kind of need the distraction right now. There’s a full slideshow over at (with a ton of Tom’s pics and my own) it’s not active yet or otherwise I’d provide a link.
