PICTURE FRIDAY: LIONS OF PONCE


I was in Ponce, Puerto Rico, this past November for my cousin Anita's birthday party.  I love visiting my home town and rediscovering it all over again.  New this time around, lions!  Which really should not come as much of a surprise since Ponce is named for Ponce de Leon, hence the lions all over the city.   Below are some lions I found in the main Plaza, all beautifully decorated and colorful.  I could not decide which was my favorite.   You try.  And, for a view of my Ponce and its main attractions, enjoy this video. --mcf

Golden Glory



Look at the mask on his coat


Black and White and Spectacular


The Red Mane is clear even through the fountain



Ponce es Ponce.
Lo demas es parking.
