“Frame: the eye…”

a través de Reto fotográfico: Frame

Sometimes it is true that Nature, that the World, frames itself… And, sometimes, we can even imagine what is behind…

For instance…. Look at this EYE…. I found it in a church in Cáceres, in Spain…

I know, I know… It is just an old stair made of stone…. But, still….
🙂
One can find funny things everywhere, even in a church!

Just back from holidays,  many things to show!

Have a good day!

WPC: Converge…

I was in my hometown a week ago, without the bestias, ( 🙂 ) so I was able to spend  a long time taking photos, day and night…(I caught a virus as well 😦 )

This is my Street, at night…

I have been living here for so many years..!!! And it is now when I see it with new eyes…That is the good thing about wandering in the middle of the cold night with a camera!! 🙂 🙂

I think it is a good example of “Converge”…(Click on the image …Looks much better!!! )

"Errekatxiki Street" Errekatxiki Street*. Vitoria-Gasteiz. Spain

*In case you are wandering about so many “k” and “tx”….Yes, this is Basque language: “Erreka” means “stream” and “txiki” “small”

🙂

Have a great weekend!

Photo 101: Landmark…

My sense of orientation is very very bad.-..But I can manage quite well if I am able to identify some landmarks…

This is one the first I used when I arrived to this city..It is located just in the middle of the city, so it was very handy!!!

It is called “La negrilla”…That means “Little black woman”, but seems to be “el negrillo” was also a kind of tree very common in these part of the country that dissapeared some time ago…So it is a  tribute to it…

Mont Saint-Michel (B&W Tuesday…)

 

If you are thinking about travelling to France, here is one of the most wonderful places you should visit: Mont Saint-Michel, in Normandy…
Although inhabited long before, the first monastery was built in the 8th century, “following instructions” of the Archangel Michael..
Seems to be he instructed the bishop of Avranches to build a church on the island…But the bishop did not pay a lot of attention…He repeated the instruction…The bishop ignored it…At the end, the Archangel got tired and angry and “…burned a hole in the bishop´s skull with his finger”..It was the year 708…And it was mostly finished by the end of the 13th century…
The village on the South Side grew up during the Middle Age, surrounded by walls that dated mostly from the Hundred Years War…
Being impressive from the distance, you can not miss the visit…All the history and magic of the place stays between its walls, that have seen everything along the years…Religion, siege, hunger, pain, punishment, death, mysticism…
Just take an audioguide..Forget about time and get lost in the History…

WPC: “Silhouettes”

“Running against the Sunlight…” (Torrevieja)

"Running against the Sunlight..."
.
What can you tell me?
It is just a silhouette…
I see…What else?
It is a boy…It is running…
There is a sea behind….

And you….What can you tell me?
I can feel the strengh…The youth…
I can feel the happiness….
It is a boy…
Running against the sunlight…
