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!!!

The Pigeons Park is located in Old San Juan. Its name comes from the hundreds of pigeons that live there and every day hope to be fed by the visitors. It has banks from where you can enjoy a beautiful vista towards the San Juan Bay.

There's nothing more romantic that a destination wedding. Now more than ever couples are opting for not so traditional wedding ceremonies. And a lot of couples pick to officiate their vows in Puerto Rico.
This one was captured in Old San Juan. I was just walking around snapping pictures when my wife spotted the couple in a very intimate and private ceremony. Just the coupe and the wedding officiant. I couldn't resist but to take a couple of shots without any of the participants noticing my presence. Enjoy!!!
A Very Intimate Wedding
First---I don't like spiders! Not arachnophobic but I avoid them at any cost. Some spiders just have beautiful colors that it is almost impossible to miss them. This one was just "hanging around" my terrace, so I jumped in and she was kind enough to stay still for the shooting. Enjoy!!!

It's been 30 days of my 365 day photo project, yikes!!! I cannot lie, it is challenging but posible. This special project is helping my creative process and I think is improving my photographic eye.
Here's a small lizard from my in-law's backyard. Enjoy!!

Our feline friends are true masters at falling asleep any time, any place, under any circumstances. Cats can sleep as much as 16 hours a day, and older cats spend even more time at rest -- as much as 20 hours a day. Sleeping helps cats conserve energy between meals.
Guess our friend below is conserving really good energy and getting ready for his next meal. Enjoy!!!
When visiting Old San Juan in Puerto Rico I'm always amazed by the rich architecture and the incredible amount of sculptures scattered all over the city. Next time you visit take a look at all the details and the care that went into the making and placement of all of them. Enjoy!!!
