WPC: “Local”

Dear friends…. This week the WPC is about where our heart is

This is a very tricky question, the answer depending on “who” is asking it to you…

Your loved one? Well… In that case I bet the correct answer is “My heart is whith you, among your arms… I could go anywhere in the World if I go with you!” 🙂 🙂

Nice, isn´t it..?

But …. Would you like to know the truth?  After being travelling the last ten years, I can honestly say that a big piece of my heart is in my local city, Vitoria-Gasteiz…

And that piece is growing and growing…. May be it is a question of age???

Here is one of my photographs of Vitoria-Gasteiz…

“The last man”

Vitoria – Gasteiz, Old Cathedral

Just recently a very good book  based in the city has been published….  Here is a great review  of  “El Silencio de la Ciudad Blanca” (by Eva García Saenz de Urtury, 2016) made by “Interludio Creativo”

Have a good week…

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!

Photo101: Edge…

Here is my edge for today´s challenge…

"Cold and dark..."

I edged away from people…

Slowly, very slow…

And edged closer to the groung…

closer, very close…

And there it was…

cold, yellow and damp

in the middle of the dark…

Cover art for…Music

This is a picture I like very much….I took it in my hometown, Vitoria-Gasteiz…These modern stairs are encrusted in the walls of the medieval city…It is a place I always visit and revisit…Love the mood, the light, the shadows, the reflections…

Everytime I look at the photograph, I can not help but think about the same old song…It is a French song, that I think suits perfectly the pic…So, I have chosen both for this week´s WPC….

Take a moment…Look at the photograph…Listen to the music…And, if you would like to tell me what  you think,I will be here…

"And she came back alone..."

Title of the photo: “And she came back alone…”

Title of the song: “Il faut tourner la page”

WPC: “Letters…”

Sometimes is not  the letters or words that convey the message…

Sometimes the environment can give them a whole different meaning,,,,

What do you think??

🙂

The message

People on the Street….

Hi everybody!

I have been out of reach for almost two weeks! I was paying a visit to my family and internet was not powerful enough to connect with WordPress….The only thing I had access to was my mail…Frustrating!!!!!

But here I am again….And it is not a bad day…Today Springtime is coming!!!!!

I can feel the air smells different, and the light is clearer, and even the birds sing more happily!!!!

So, here is a happy night photograph from one of my hometown streets…A pop versión, full of colour!

“Calle Fueros. Vitoria-Gasteiz”

Hope you like it!
Have a great day!
