Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is a beautiful Island in the Caribbean. We have visited this island several times in the past decade, and every visit was a wonderful experience. On our visit in February of 2007, we were on a cruise. We took an excursion of Old San Juan which included spending time in the beautiful old fort that defended the island for centuries:


From the fort, you can look down over one of the gates into the city:


And once in the city you have many beautiful streets and buildings:


I love the sense of depth in that last picture with the beautiful cobblestone street receding into the distance. Also, the muted colors of the buildings add a quiet beauty.

For this post, I will leave you with a picture of the island as we pulled away in our cruise ship.


The picture gives you a real sense of the island nature of Puerto Rico. On a future post, we will explore other interesting aspects of the island.

    1. Thank you. It was one of those shots that got framed perfectly from the start and that need no enhancements. If I were a professional photographer, I would probably add a copyright to that shot.

  1. You had me at Puerto Rico! 🙂 Many of my fiction stories are based there because I adore it so much and have been going there almost every year, sometime twice a year for the past 23 years! I have many of the same photos! 🙂 Cheers!

  2. I loved your photography story. You took us your tour and it was delightful.
    I’ve been there many, many times both on cruises and as a child. I lived in
    a small town for a year and enjoyed its lifestyle and culture. Nicely done …
