Photographer's Note

This father-son shot is dedicated to my son, Henry, who wanted so much quality time with his parents that he decided not to sleep between the hours of 11:30 pm and 4am last night!

This is the lawn leading up to El Morro, the largest fort in San Juan. The tower at the far end is the lighthouse within the fortress; destroyed by American fire during the Spanish American War of 1898, it was faithfully rebuilt afterward.

This spot, with its wide open grass and strong winds, has become a favorite spot for kite-flying, with Puertorriquenos and tourists alike sending theirs aloft to dot the sky. Her the scene unfolds behind this father-son team just getting theirs into the air. This small version doesn't really allow you to see all of the kites in the air; click on the larger version below for a better view. Note also that the domed structure from my recent cemetery post is also visible, under the city walls to the right.
