man on the moon

I tried to find a good shot for the past July 20th post, to celebrate the day Armstrong and Aldrin landed on moon in 1969, but couldn't find anything interesting. Yesterday I browsed the Cartagena archives and found this shot which automatically took me to moonday. In case you are wondering, it's a wave breaker in the city's coast.

Cartagena, Colombia

From the Cartagena archive; I like this picture, even though the Canon 400D does not perform very well under low light conditions. This shot kinda takes me back in time, the architecture as usual, beautiful.

Cartagena, Colombia.

This is an old canon found at the "old city" (ciudad vieja) in Cartagena, Colombia. This is from the old walls built during the reign of King Felipe II in order to defend against english, pirate, dutch and french attacks (17th and 18th centuries). After various years, Cartagena was a free spanish land (today, Colombia).

Come visit, it's an amazing place.

This was taken in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia. Its a famous theatre, it was the Merced church before, in 1625. Its name comes from the founder of Cartagena, Pedro de Heredia, a spanish conqueror. You can check the shot's location here. You can also check the map for my geotagged flickr photos here.
