on a recent trip — with the californians — to see our old sanantonio stomping grounds, it was discovered that our favorite friday night spot had been sold. what was previously a homey hangout for beer and two stepping is now most often enjoyed via weddings and private parties. what a surprise seeing how much has changed in that area! then, perusing the ny times photo blog lens, I discovered photographerlisakrantz' work in the area. cowboys and cul-de-sacs explores the tensions between bucolic and suburban ways of life. her photo story is spot on.
