Castillo de San Marcos

Castillo de San Marcos

In historic St. Augustine today, I bought a miniature fort and took a photo of it in front of the real thing.

I’ve been considering continuing my Souvenirs series in America for quite some time and this serves as the first of the Souvenirs (2) series.

The souvenir represents the tokens we take home with us from our travels- to remind us of the things we’ve seen, while the blurred background represents the blurring of our memories of the places we visit over time.
