Starting in San Juan

Our transatlantic cruise started in San Juan.  Yes, I realize I’ve ended this backwards.  In fact, this will be the last post regarding our transatlantic cruise.  We’ve actually been to San Juan many times.  San Juan is a beautiful city with brightly colored buildings butting up against the blue sea.  San Juan has several old Spanish forts which reach into the Atlantic Ocean and make a fantastic sail away at night.

While in San Juan, we like to walk around Old Town.  It is where the majority of history lies.  The city paints it’s buildings all the colors of the rainbow.  In fact it feels as if you are inside the rainbow looking out at the sky.

  1. You have a great gift. What you say and see and capture on film resonates so much with me. Thank you for sharing! Thank you, also for stopping by and liking my blog:-)

    • Never. But I would love to visit there someday. It is actually one of the places I have on my list to go. I am sure there are lots of good camping sites up there. Todd loves to camp and while I am not as keen on it as he is, I can be persuaded if it is in a great photographic area like Newfoundland.

  2. WOW! Your work is absolutely delightful Seth. I shared your new calendar on my wordpress page. Hope that is okay! It must be incredibly satisfying when you have so many lovely things around to photograph. Now, I want to see San Juann.

  3. I don’t know if you had photoshopped some of them heavily, but it all looks so bright! i love bright colours and I’d really like to go there. awesome.

    • If I remember correctly, it is where the governor lives. If not the governor’s house it is a government building, which is why there is a policeman outside the entrance. 🙂 I don’t know, the pink sort of adds to the uniqueness of the city and it is in the Caribbean. 🙂 thanks again for your visit.

  4. The Tree with the crazy roots is absolutely inspiring. I think it’ll be the visual inspiration for a scene in the short story I’m editing.

    Once again, gorgeous pictures. I’ve come to look forward to these picture-blog posts of yours. 🙂

  5. Orange, yellow , pink to blue
    I take a rest if I was you
    under the tree that has branches and roots
    watching the women pass the colored buildings in twos
    Doors had extra bolts and handle that got a hold
    I love San juan pictures ,for they have colors on buildings
    and fountain got statues, and now I look at waves below
    go slow ..slow

  6. In March, I spent a few days in Old San Juan before boarding my cruise. I have some wonderful pics – when I’ve time, I’ll upload. Great photography; I enjoyed your shots very much. ~LL
