Old San Juan in Puerto Rico

I recently ventured to Puerto Rico…by myself. I even rented a car and drove all around the country. I shot this photo in Old San Juan. I believe this little monument is called Garita Del Diablo. I don’t know the historical significance or even the meaning. But I do know that this site brought me to tears as I approached the monument with the sun setting over the water. Garita Del Diablo through my lens signifies MY independence, bravery, and freedom. Looking at it, I remember that Sunday so well. The sun to the left, soft music in the background, warm/humid weather and the realization that this is the life I get to live.
