Ponce de Léon Hotel

Punce de Leon Hotel St Augustine

There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.    Sophia Loren

In the awesome Historic section of St. Augustine sits the beautiful Spanish Colonial Revival architectural gem, the Ponce de Léon Hotel, which now is part of the Flagler College Campus. Flagler acquired the Hotel in 1968 as the centerpiece of the campus and set out on a mission to restore the Hotel,  in 2006  the building became  a National Historic Landmark.

The main entrance to the Building is quite breathtaking, I chose the fisheye to get as much of the interior and ceiling as I could, this building begs to be photographed inside and out.

Thanks for stopping!

Ponce De Léon

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving Holiday! Sorry I have been non existent lately, I had a nice little project fall into my lap right at Thanksgiving and had to tune up my product photography skills, always fun!

Today’s post is a shot from the beautiful courtyard of the Ponce De Léon Hotel, now commonly known as Flagler College located in St Augustine Florida.

Flagler College Ponce De Leon Hotel St Augustine

This shot was captured on a beautiful St Augustine evening when I was snooping around with the tripod. This was a 9 exposure bracket on a cloudy night, the exposures were a bit long but not long enough to be a nuisance. The slight long exposures gave me the look and feel I wanted with the clouds that evening. The glow of the lights with the clouds made for an interesting look and feel to the image. The entrance and lobby to this once famous hotel is a work of art in itself.

This is a shot from a previous post of the entrance and lobby at Flagler, once Ponce De Léon Hotel built in 1988.
