Photographer's Note

The fortress of El Morro is Puerto Rico's largest and most impressive colonial fort. It sits at the northwestern tip of Old San Juan, at the mouth of San Juan harbor. the fortress itself is beautifully maintained, retaining an old world feel despite careful preservation and renovation as a National Park.

The view here is from a balcony, added during renovation, that is accessible only from the men's room. It's an odd sight to see a balcony upon entry to the rest room here (see the Workshop for an idea of the layout), and even stranger to see such a beautiful scene when standing on that balcony, but there it is.
