Friday Photo - Urbi et Orbi, San Juan

Photo by Patrick L Jones - 29 May 2004, San Juan, PR
The photo above was taken in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico along a wall next to steps in the plaza across from El Morro. This area is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site in Old San Juan.

I'm not Catholic, although my Mexican ancestors were. I took the photo because the stencil tag stood out against the white wall, the person in black recalled "Rage Against the Machine"'s Battle of Los Angeles album cover. "Urbi et Orbi" means "for the City and for the World" and signifies a Papal message.

I previously posted a series of street art photos. In addition to museums in various places, this is something I keep an eye out for on my travels.
