When my friends asked me what I liked about Spain the most, invariably I would answer, "the colors." You're about to find out why.
|The candy stall|
|Smoothies to go|
|A flower stall along Las Ramblas, a long pedestrian thoroughfare in Barcelona|
|A cold, black night looking out over Barcelona|
with my daughters, Lisa and Lori
|One of the many tile walls in the|
Parc Guell designed by Antoni Gaudi
|Lisa showing a typical|
|Flamenco shoes for young and old|
the market in Granada
800-year-old Moorish castle
|Looking out a window|
at the Alhambra
|Heavy, wonderful rugs.|
In a little town in the Alpujurras mountains
|Black olives, flung down|
from the tree
and find a tiny frog
inside this calla lilly
|Peacocks guarded the pool,|
|and the roof.|
|All locally grown,|
|and wonderfully delicious.|
|The Mediterranean meets the Atlantic|
at the southernmost tip of Europe,
|Zucchini, ground almonds & chunks of parmesan.|
As a writer, I usually don't agree with the maxim, "A picture is worth a thousand words." But, sometimes they do say a lot!
They are absolutely beautiful, Carol. I have never been to Spain so thank you for the colorful tour! My favorite part of Dublin, Ireland was the colors of the doors on homes. Whenever I think of Ireland I think of color and now I will think of Spain in the same way.
Thanks, Jane. Glad you enjoyed the pictures! If I make it to Dublin, I'll be sure and take pictures of the doors!
Lovely little tour. Also have never been to Spain. I just know it's amazing!
Wow....didn't know you were a photographer, too! Loved the peacocks at the pool and all the beautiful colors.
Beautiful photos. I'm sure you're jotting down book ideas.
Thanks so much Carol. A new way to think of Spain. It's not just bulls. :)
I'm not a photographer-- Just figure my pictures are my best (& cheapest!) souvenirs. Loved your comment about the bulls,LInda. ANd I wish I could say this is generating a book idea, but it didn't. ALthough I did enjoy journaling while there!
