i am a self-defined Nuyorican creative (that is a Puerto Rican who is from both the isles of Manhattan, NYC and the Caribbean). I share daily in the joy of education and live in a cute port town in New York, in a 'teensy-weensy' apartment with my two dogs and canary named Valentino. Check out my Etsy shop for purchasable pieces. Please do not reproduce imagery off of this site without explicit credit and no derivatives may be made of my original imagery- Thank You.

Puerto Rico's Portals - Doors and Windows

Well, I haven't been keeping up with my blogging as well as I should have because I was traveling again. When I travel to my other home (Puerto Rico)- it's country living and very difficult (although getting easier every time) to have internet access at my every whim. I generally visit PR every year since my father, brothers and much of my mother's side of the family have always resided there. Every time I go I visit Old San Juan either by 'Carro Publico' (public transport vans) on my own or in a car with friends or family. My favorite shops the bookstore Cronopios and Lace shop (The Linen House) are faithfully there every time I return. I have started a collection of images of Puerto Rico's Portals (windows and doors) that I would love to share on this blog much like the images of my trip to Europe this year. In addition to my usual Puerto Rican escapades, this time I had another extraordinary event; my brother Michael's wedding so you might see some of those images coming up soon too!

oh, these photos are nice...i can't say which i like more. the first one reminds me of new orleans, the church reminds me of some churches i've photographed in mexico. such vibrancy of colors! i love architecture, i love vivid colors, and i most especially love any artwork with portals....like some people favor flowers or abstract or watercolors, i've always been partial by the architecture (especially gothic and middle eastern) of windows, doors and entryways....

very nice....

I loved Old San Juan. It's a post coming up someday soon for me... whenever I stop being blog-writing lazy and take the time to write it out O:)

Your photos are fabulous. Hope you're enjoying your time with your family and at la boda... being away from the blog is a good thing sometimes.
