While I haven’t been checking in as much as I’d like the past few weeks, I’ve still been taking just as many if not more photos on my travels. A lot and if you include the zoo up there in the 1000’s. I try not to take many zoo photos, but ‘must capture’ it takes over in my escape from everything place. Anyways, keeping it short and sweet….
The chiringuitos are back ready for Easter and the summer Continue reading “Out And About”
The past few weeks, if I’ve missed the zoo where I mostly practice my photography I’ve been making myself take photos regardless. Sometimes it’s using a different lens when another would be better cycling through the park. I have to think more, change position, look for different angles. Sometimes it’s because I’ve really miss taking photos if I haven’t for a few days because life can get same old.

Especially as the next few days are back to cold grey. Since the wind started battering the coast last Thursday, Continue reading “High Winds”
Without fail The Three Kings and their entourages roll into town every 5th of January being led by the North Star. Just like Santa Claus somehow squeezes down chimneys and air con units (not sure he gets into places without chimneys. He’s a little big for air con units. Maybe he sends an elf) to deliver presents on Christmas Day, The Three Kings over The Holidays bring presents on the 6th January. Ask any Spanish kid who brings Christmas presents most’ll say the Kings. Santa has a huge delivery list in Spain, Caga Tio does its thing in Catalunya however it’s the Kings who rule. Most kids will get a visit from Santa and the Kings.
This year unlike Continue reading “La Cabalgata de Reyos Magos/The Three Kings Parade Barcelona 2017”
