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.

Mulled Wine?

I wanted to enter the GTDA’s weekly challenge ‘Winter’ but all my November photos are just wet and cold grey days, so a real wintery shot will have to wait. I am using one from the time we lived in Budapest. This chap was a regular feature on Normafa’s hillside providing a winter warmer to the sledgers and walkers, Forralt Bor is Hungarian for hot wine.

The people appear ‘Tiny’ from the ramparts of the Alcazaba in Malaga, so I’m entering my Birds Eye View into the Daily Posts Weekly Photo Challenge – Tiny. Click this LINK to see the other entries, they are amazing.

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!
