Alternate Horizon…

And my second entry in the ‘New Horizon’ challenge is a recent shot of Malagas ancient and impressive skyline, I especially liked the way the old sits alongside the new and the culture beside the industrial. Malaga is one of the worlds most ancient cities formed by the Phoenicians around 770bc.

Putting One’s Feet Up…

This chap is insisting on catching up on his beauty sleep in the Plaza de La Constitution despite the frantic efforts all around him to get the cycle tour of Malaga underway.

Putting on a Facade…

Exploring a little further into the streets of Malaga it’s clear to me that some of the old buildings are just putting on a front, this old ‘Facade’ is in need of a lot of support.

First Impressions…

We had just stepped outside our hotel after arriving in Malaga, the ornate railings of the old bridge across the River Guadalmedina caught my eye immediately,  as I walked closer I was already anticipating a pretty good photo for my rivers theme…  Unfortunately for me  the Rio was not in full flow, not even in partial flow, as Malaga had not seen rain since late February. Unfortunately again for me the overdue rain arrived the next day!

Push the Boat Out…

Three work horses taking a break in Malaga’s busy port, you can ‘Bank’ on these three getting the job done, especially the one nearest the quayside ‘Santander’.

A Pew with a ‘Mahou’ (part 19)

A rather simple Pew in the Madrid Metro has been given a rather grand makeover by the positioning of the Teatro Real’s advertising. This had to feature in my Pew with a View series but I could not resist bringing the Mahou into play….   


Tomas here usually guards the entrance to the Basilica at The Valley of the Fallen in Spain, but today he has managed to sneak into my blog. When I checked the weeks I have missed in the GTDA’s photo challenge, weeks 11 & 12 are ‘Round’ and ‘Face’. What better way to enter both weeks with Tommy’s round face.
