Three palms, a gun and a fort

Castillo de San Marcos is the perfect anchor-point of St. Augustine. It is prominently located right on the water and covers 340 of the 447-year history of the city. Begun in 1672, the fort changed hands several times and took several names, but it is back to the original as it is registered as a United States National Monument.

This is the first photo of several dozen I took at the fort. The stone walls sit low in the land that surround the structure, but there are a few places to get nice angles. Palm trees were an obvious and welcome contrast to the heaviness of the militarized space, but a heaviness dominated the atmosphere there. That’s why I left the photo in black and white.
