When a wall was built around San Juan, Puerto Rico, doors were built as the only way to access the city. Over the years those doors have disappeared. This is the last remaining door, an entrance from San Juan Bay into the old city. The huge entryway is a landmark of its own right. It is open most days so tourists can cross through the thick walls from the promenade into the old city.
No matter what time of year, chances are pretty good that people will be at the beach in Florida. Locals will bundle up on a cold day while tourists and snowbirds will treat it like a sunny day. Here you can see folks in jackets while a shirtless boy plays in the sand. Grain has been added to this photo to enhance the atmosphere.
Fort Zachary Taylor is Florida's southernmost state park. It was built in the mid 1800's as part of a series of forts designed to protect the southern coastline of the United States and played an important part in the US Civil war and the Spanish-American war. Located in the middle of an operating military base, it is undergoing restoration work. In this photo the flag is shown at half mast on the parade ground.
