You deserve to have a digital copy of some of the pictures I have taken of Puerto Rico.


My Thoughts on the Image

The great Bruce Lee taught us the importance of being fluid in this famous quote.

“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”
― Bruce Lee

This past saturday I had an Unplanned Afternoon where I got to shoot some pictures around Old San Juan, Puerto Rico.

I stayed mainly in the Paseo de La Princesa area pacing up and down. On each trip I identified a new detail or object. Walking over the same place made me realize how little attention we pay to our surroundings most of the time.

These statues tell a story and the water flowing around it brings the attention to them. The Paseo de la Princesa fountain brings in crowds to capture those moments.

Without the water they would be simple statues? Would as many people stand in front of it to capture that moment?
