A new day caresses the calm waters of my hometown. Got there early to set up my gear, not that many clouds in the sky, but never the less, it is still a beautiful new beginning. Enjoy!!!
Typical festive Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, attending costume parties, decorating, carving pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted house attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films. Enjoy!!!
So I was at the house and it was around 12:30 in the afternoon when it started to rain. The sun was out, so I grabbed my camera and ran to my backyard. The purpose was to try to freeze the rain drops as they came down on some flowers. Well, this is what I managed to capture. Enjoy!!!

Close up look at a fly...sorry if you don't like them but I had to post it! Enjoy!!!
With its abundance of shops, historic places, museums, open air cafés, restaurants, gracious homes, tree-shaded plazas, and its old beauty and architectonical peculiarity, Old San Juan is a main spot for local and internal tourism. A free tourist trolley serves the city.
Visiting the Puerto Rico flag mural located in San Jose Street its a must to do when you are vacationing in San Juan, PR! Make sure you wear comfortable shoes like sneakers because the sidewalks are very narrow and there are a lot of hills. Enjoy!!!

The Columbus Quincentennial in 1992 sparked a major refurbishing of the colonial architecture of Puerto Rico. The island's architectural heritage is Spanish, of course, as seen in the narrow, winding cobblestone streets and the pastel-colored, tile-roofed buildings with ornate balconies and heavy wooden doors that open onto inner courtyards in the style of Andalusia in southern Spain.
Current restoration and renewal projects focus on Old San Juan and the city of Ponce. It is estimated that there are at least 400 structures of historic value in Old San Juan, including some of the finest examples of Spanish colonial architecture in the New World. Enjoy!!!

When looking for a subject to photograph you don't have to look really far---you just need to look! Don't wait for a time of year, wonder around your neighborhood, your backyard or your house and you will find it. Enjoy!!!
Desert rose branches naturally, creating an attractive treelike house plant. Its succulent stems are covered top to bottom with long, evergreen leaves.
The desert rose flower is a sight to behold, and you'll enjoy them in abundance each summer. Clusters of gorgeous pink or red flowers grow at the tips of the stems, with a succession of blooms that last for months. Enjoy!!!

Raíces Fountain (Fuente Raices) is a large fountain located at the western end of the Paseo de la Princesa which is a fountain that represents the different cultural and ethnic backgrounds in Puerto Rico. The fountain features several naked bronze godessess riding horses and dolphins with jets of water spraying over them. At night, the fountain is illuminated with lights.
As you may see, it was empty when I went to photograph but it still looks good. Enjoy!!!
