Hi Patricia, hi Dale, Yes, I could spend the rest of my life working on this picture in Photoshop. In the end I'd have essentially what I already have, and I'd much rather spend that time shooting new pictures.
This guy is an actor at Castillo de San Marcos, a national monument my wife and I visit nearly every time we visit St. Augustine in Florida, one of my favorite places in all the world to do street photography. He was acting as an information booth guy at the time I shot this picture, and my wife was chatting with him. St. Augustine is the oldest continuously occupied city in the United States. It was built and settled by the Spanish in 1565, occupied by the English in 1763, re-occupied by the Spanish in 1783, and finally occupied permanently by the United States in 1821.
The Castillo is the harbor fort that was built by the Spanish in the late 1600's. You can read all about the Castillo at http://www.nps.gov/casa/index.htm
Hot damn, Russ! The Unitred States lives
there - much easier to occupy and then keep occupied than from Britain or Spain... Think of the problems we two monarchies already have with the Falklands-cum-Malvinas.
P.S. Which is confusing: Spain has nothing to do with the Falklands, but it does with Gibraltar. And that's on the same bit of land (in Europe!). Thing is, why would anyone want it? It's one of the ugliest places I've ever been to in my life. Strategic? In today's world? About as stategic as my stockphoto plan for my old age! Worthless.
