San Antonio skyline from Tower of Americas over the years
 
It would be cool to see how the San Antonio skyline has changed over the years. The only spot I can think of where lots of people have taken the exact same picture is from the Tower of the Americas. Please post yours here with the date it was taken. Hi res pictures are OK because it will make for a nice animated GIF later on. I don't have one of my own handy, but the one in the next post is from circa 2010. The older (the more rare) the better.

This is such a beautiful picture! Add in the Canopy and the Frost, by 2019, this view is going to be incredible. The Canopy is really going to stand out in this view. It's really exciting. hopefully the JMJ tower will be included - we can only hope.

San Antonio forum members:
Please go up the Tower of the Americas somewhat often in the near future. Frost is already almost topped out, but there are others that are just getting started, and there may soon be more. It would be awesome to build a collective photo documentary of the changes coming to San Antonio. You can take turns where somebody different goes up every month. That way if there are 12 of you (and me whenever I visit my mom), the commitment will be light.

This picture looks like it was taken in the late morning, based on where the sunlight is. Maybe lunch time or on a weekend.

If they all kinda match lighting-wise, they'd flow together well video or gif style.
