San Juan

Lazy Days in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico

Daily Photo:

In old San Juan, families come out to sit in the square and watch their kids play, just like they would in a park somewhere. We stayed in a hotel overlooking the square, right in the heart of old San Juan. Most visitors usually end up staying in a resort on the beach, but this trip we wanted to be downtown, closer to the normal coming’s and going’s of the locals. I spent the day pretty much walking the entire town, trying to grab the local scene, the typical sites, and the off-the-beaten path kind of shots.

We don’t feed pigeons in Arizona. Most people treat them like pest here and would just as soon eradicate them. I live in a rare community in Arizona that is surrounded by water, so we have a lot of them hanging out. I won’t  be feeding any pigeons. Neighbors don’t take kind to that. So we hop on a plane and go to Venice or Puerto Rico or somewhere where they are treated like nice pest and through out some bird seed.

Raices Fountain, San Juan, Puerto Rico

Daily Photo:

Walk along the Paseo de la Princesa of Old San Juan and enjoy the sight of the magnificent Raíces Fountain. Famous among lovers who sit and watch the sunset turn the fountain to golds and copper colors. Though I missed out on a colorful sunset, the clouds made up for it, making a great HDR image. Hardly a moment went by without someone sitting on the ledge and throwing a coin in the fountain. Do I hear a song coming on!!
