After a long delay, I’m now trying to sort through some of the images from San Juan. Although I only shot for a couple of hours, the day was just beautiful and opportunities for photography were limitless. Old San Juan is a beautiful place and I was amazed by its history, size, textures and colors.
As far as gear, I mainly shot with the Nikon 24mm f/1.4G and Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G and both turned out to be excellent for street and architectural photography. The body was my favorite Nikon D700.

This is where I started touring the old fort:
There were lots of iguanas inside the fort. This one was even picked up by a local tourist, after which it posed for me for a second, then disappeared into a hole.

I have some more pictures of the fort, which I will post in San Juan – Part 3 tomorrow. Stay tuned!
