La Garita Del Morro || Viejo San Juan
If you’ve been to Viejo (old) San Juan, then you’ve no doubt noticed the garitas (sentry turrets). The Garitas line the ancient wall that surrounds Old San Juan and are so iconic to the culture and history of the Island of Puerto Rico, that they even appear on the license plates.
This prominent cultural representation coupled with the fact that they are extremely easy to approach makes them a popular subject to photograph. Everyone who visits San Juan with a camera has snapped at least a few photos of these iconic structures.
So how do you snap a unique photo of one of the most photographed objects in the world?
1st: Have a healthy portion of Puerto Rican Rum. :)
2nd: Watch the skies.
Puerto Rico is very famous for their sunsets and I spent 3 of them around this location waiting for the right amount of sky drama. It may have been a wee bit obsessive on my part, but I really wanted this shot to work.
