The beautiful island of Puerto Rico

Written and photographed by Gary Wonning

Castillo San Felipe del Morro also known as Fuerte San Felipe del Morro or Castillo del Morro, is a 16th-century citadel located in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

 

Designed to protect the harbor of San Juan, El Morro  was built on the northwestern most point of the islet of Old San Juan, and was named on honor of Philip 11 of Spain.

The island was attackedmany times in it’ short history and these cannon balls had to be handy.

Looking out a window of the fort, the town of San Juan is next door.

A moment of quiet contemplation 

Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.

Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.

Along the way he collected several thousand photographs that he wants to share with everyone.

Gary decided the best way to accomplish his goal was to publish photo documentaries on the various areas of the world he has visited.

What will follow will be several photography books, who knows how many will wind up in his collection.
