Hello faithful readers, I am back! Puerto Rico was wonderful, thank you for asking. We did practically nothing besides lay on the beach or at the pool and relax, which is exactly what we needed. After a rather interesting day of travel back to Atlanta (note to self, don’t get lost in San Juan, or let your husband almost blackout on a plane, or lose your airport parking ticket), I am glad to be home.
Since the resort we were staying at was about an hour away from San Juan, I dragged David out to old San Juan the day we arrived for some sight seeing and photo taking (of course). We went to Castillo San Felipe del Morro (or as most people know it, El Morro). Here are some of my favorite shots (almost all taken with my Tokina 11-16 f/2.8, I’ve included my settings below too in case you are interested, all taken in manual exposure). I’m still processing photos from the rest of the trip since work has been crazy since I got back (no surprise there). Enjoy!
11mm f/9 1/800 ISO 400 — I sat here and waited about 5 minutes for this stupid trolley to move out of the way that was right in the middle of my photo. Luckily there were also not many people around at the same time. Win win! Although looking back on this photo, now I think I need to brighten it up a little more.
11mm f/7.1 1/640 ISO 400 — Inside the fort
35mm f/4 1/8 ISO 100 (um, I do not recommend these settings…ha!) — I really liked how the light was coming in here.
11mm f/9 1/1000 ISO 400 — San Juan Cemetery with El Morro in the background. Not gonna lie, this was kind of creepy!
Until next time! Adios!
