No me gustan las banderas.

I don’t like flags: they’re exclusive, discriminatory and finite. There’s always one that engulfs the other. If anything crossbones with a white dove on her mouth or an infinity on a blue background under a starry sky. That’s really gives me vertigo… I get dissy just thinking that I’m less than a speck of dust in the Universe.

No me gustan las banderas. Son excluyentes, discriminatorias y finitas. Siempre hay una que engulle a las otras. Si acaso la bandera pirata con una paloma blanca sobre la boca… O un infinito sobre un fondo celeste, bajo un cielo estrellado. Eso sí que me da vértigo, me mareo solo de pensar que soy menos que una mota de polvo en el Universo…

Estas casitas me cautivaron cuando las ví desde la ventanilla del coche. No sé si han sido pescadores de la zona, pero les han hecho a los pajaritos unas casas preciosas sobre los restos de una pita seca. Así que cuando he visto que el reto de esta semana era HOME me he acordado inmediatamente de estas fotos que tenía guardadas sin saber muy bien para qué… ¿A tí qué te parece?

Llevaba mucho tiempo sin pasarme por aquí, tanto que me  he encontrado con muchos cambios en WordPress… Echaba de menos los “Retos” pero es que uno siempre saca tiempo para las obligaciones y pospone las  aficiones. Durante este tiempo no he abandonado la Fotografía, de hecho comencé en un pequeño taller  al que intento asistir regularmente. Lo mejor de ese Taller no es lo que pueda aprender, que es mucho, te lo aseguro… Lo mejor para mí es tener la oportunidad de conocer a otras personas “no virtuales” con las mismas aficiones que yo, y poder asistir a eventos relacionados con este Arte.

Nos vemos pronto con todo mi arsenal fotográfico de tantos meses acumulado…

 

I promise you’ll have another chance, because infinity moves in both directions.

Special Photo Challenge: Inspiration

Estándar

I have come to conclusion that my great hobby is Photography, but my real need is Writing. And here I am, a spanish woman trying to blog in English and posting photos of  everything around me. Tired of living in a big city for many years, it really inspires me  getting lost in the countryside or in any semi-abandoned village. I have very few pictures of me because I’m always behind the camera, but I found these, I hope you enjoy. Have a nice day!! 😉

Chestnuts Fall

Estándar

The golden fall sunshine is making me very happy. It’s time to change!!!♥♥♥

Last Sunday we got up early   and went to the Sierra. We passed from 24ºC on the coast at 7ºC on Paterna del Río*…. But it was worth it!!! Winter is becoming closer and chestnuts trees are shedding their fruits inevitably. On november 3rd we’ll celebrate the Día de la Castaña (Chestnut Day), and as you can imagine that day everything revolves around the fruit. ♥You’re all invited!!!

Rainy Day in Madrid.

Estándar

Happy sunday to everyone! After Friday’s Photo Challenge I’ve been thinking what is my real challenge to make this blog, what reasons compel me to undertake this small project, this great hobby. I have come to conclusion that my great hobby is Photography, but my real need is Writing. And I have a big problem: I write in English. That’s my real Challenge. I’m Spanish, a French teacher and  travel agent. I studied in College French, Italian and German but English only a few months. I love learning about other cultures, reading other people, and that’s how I’m learning English: reading and writing. From the first moment I started this blog I saw that 80% of my readers were English-speaking from all over the world, and you can not imagine how I filled it with satisfaction. You do not know how much I enjoy looking at my stats flags in all colors and  from so many countries, I’m truly happy!!!! With this tirade just want to ask a little patience when you read words or expressions squeaky and perhaps without much sense: I’m trying…

And without further delay I’ll tell you that these pictures are from Madrid last weekend. It was a rainy day but funny. Since I do not live in Madrid I love to walk about the city where I grew up as if seeing it for the first time, as a tourist in my own land. Everytime I go, I take a photo of my feet on the Kilometro Cero (top photo), in the middle of the Puerta del Sol. I love it!!! Walking down Gran Via I met a couple of guys that offered me the opportunity to take a picture with them. They were models advertising the new Lady Gaga’s perfume in a Sephora store. At first I was embarrassed (why me?), but then I thought why not? It was funny!!

Well, I hope all of you guys have a nice day and a pretty sunday. See you!!!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy.

I’m testing  new galleries and I’m happy to be here again. I don’t  know why but these pictures are what make me smile, I guess because I travel through time looking at them…
