[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of my hundreds of slide film travel photos that I've decided to scan, and enhance with Photoshop, to give them a second life. Actually, besides playing with the colors, perspective, and resolution, I did not add anything else.

This is part of the Fort in Old San Juan. When I visit such places, I always try to imagine the type of activity and life that people lived when it was built, and thereafter. There is always a particular smell coming from the decaying walls. I liked the yellowish/greenish tones of the walls and reflected light...the grimy walls.

Hi Richard,
Nice one from back in '81! :)) It's a wonderful place, yes the play of lights are excellent.. I could though give a little sharpen to it! :) I visited this place in 1997 and of course, one can involuntarily think about the things that might have happened between these walls! TfS

ps: I got one photo of the fort from outside!

Lucky you!! I sooo want to visit Old San Juan!!

I have a close friend that has just built a new home in P.R. and has named a room after me! Now, I need to go visit!

This is a lovely work...I love all of the textures and tones. Oh, the history!!
