While Walking Around Old San Juan

When ever I'm in Puerto Rico I make sure to reserve time to wander around Old San Juan. It's one of my favorite places on the island. It's a city flooded with culture, history and adventures. There is always a picture waiting around the corner.

San Juan, PR (2017)

The image above is from my last trip there (June 2017). I was walking around the streets of this magical city when I came across this sign, on display. It translates to "I never quit". I instantly felt the need to document it and bring it back home with me; for many reasons. It made me think of all the powerful, influential Puerto Ricans I have met and read about. Individuals like Ramón Emeterio BetancesPedro Albizu Campos, Roberto Clemente and many more. We all have a unique story to tell. We all face challenges, one way or another. The important part is to remember that we will never quit. We will forever weather the storm.

1. Important People: Ask yourself who is really important to you and photograph that person. Ask that person to me two people who are really important to them, and photograph these people too. (Sebastian Hau)

2. Traveler: Pick a pedestrian and follow them. Don't photograph them. JJust go where they take you and photograph along the way. Consider yourself a passenger and make the most out of where you are taken. When you lose them, follow someone new. Repeat. (Gus Powell)

3. Flirtation: Photograph several people who you would like to sleep with, but who do not know you want to sleep with them. (Nicholas Nixon)

The best way to master something is to step outside of your comfort zone and push your creativity.
