Wordless Wednesday : Mijas Taxis!

Thursday Doors : 18 May

We have just been on a short trip to the sunshine in southern Spain, the Costa del Sol, and here are a few of the doors we came across.  Most doors that we saw were very ornate, and a lot of them had these wrought iron doors outside the wooden doors, which means the building can be cooler in summer with the wooden door open.

Or how about these ones?

A Word A Week Photograph Challenge : Contrast

My first two photos that show contrast were taken in Tivoli Gardens at Christmas time, they are so colourful that they immediately catch your eye, and straight away give you a happy feeling.

And in Spain, the vibrant colours of the flowers give a great contrast against the green leaves, and the white wall as background.

Progress and Nature

Wind Farms and the Rock of Gibraltar

This picture is one that is becoming more familiar as we make ‘progress’ in our lives, and need more, and cheaper, electricity.   Sometimes the structures look like invaders from space against the skyline!

Travel Theme : Yellow

For Ailsa’s travel theme this week, the colour is yellow.  On Looking through my many photos, I find that I have surprisingly few yellow shots, but I did find a few, taken in the sunshine of Spain.
