Color me Spain!

As stated in my last post, the applications I was using to design with decided to challenge me a bit which put my blog on the back burner. If you can bare with the trial and error stage, I’m going to “give it a go” with a new system. I apologize ahead of time if there are any quirky details I still have to iron out. All righty, here we go!

Do to the lack of posts throughout my journey in Spain, I’m going to lump together some categories to catch you up to my present moment.

I think “Color me Spain” is necessary to start with due to the impression it’s made in my mind and the expectations it has set for my future home. Woh woh woh, no I’m not thinking of “settling down” anytime soon, just saying I want to live in a world of color!
Ive been amazed at the vibrancy throughout each city with the buildings to the local art work… Color is everywhere! Without further explanation, welcome to the rainbow of Spain!

The following photos include: Madrid, Barcelona, Ibiza, Granada, Valencia, Alicante and Tossa De Mar.

Scratching the surface of Madrid

I’ve been having a bit of trouble with my photo uploads (good ol’ technology) so once I get it sorted I’ll be flooding the blog with striking shots and info of what Spain so far. Here is just a taste…

I loved the color contrast between the flowers and buildings.

I wasn’t surprised to see Mickey and Minnie wandering the streets, by all means they rank in popularity up there with Coca Cola and Oprah. I did however do a double take at his choice of costume… an American Flag?

This group of people have been out here in the same spot all day, everyday since I’ve arrived. Surrounded by suitcases and umbrellas, they sit and speak amongst themselves.

If you were to close your eyes and walk past this book store, you’d hear an enthusiastic elderly man explaining something (that I couldn’t understand) to a young fellow who you wouldn’t be able to hear due to his intent on grasping every word being shared with him. It was lovely.

These statues are placed around the city, I think they’re kind of comforting in a way.

“Yes son, that’s what Bam Bam carries around.”

I actually think I’m going to have an entire post dedicated to the food that has left a special place in my heart(and gut). These are just the a few pics that I was able to load… Dozens more to come!

This is “Plaza Mayor”, the view from the first hostel room Madrid. I’ll be describing the different hostels I’ve experienced in Spain in the future as they range quite a bit and deserve their own post, (as well as the people I met during my stay).

Wake up your eyes!

Fancy pants got a new camera!

My loyal friend of photo taking has finally retired in peace as it has been covered in sand, dipped in pools, dropped from buses, drowned in oceans, left in cabs, survived mud baths, paint parties and has circled the globe shoved in the bottom of a carry on for years.
Who would of thought that silly little insurance I bought with it would pull through after all of my “gentle” use. $9.28 later I have a brand new gem that is prepared for the journey ahead.

As with any new toy, I started pushing buttons to see what I could come up with.  I’m sure several of you have been using these effects for years, but oh… I’m excited for what this gadget can do! I’ve only scratched the surface.

Here are some experimental pics I snapped from New York and just a taste of Madrid:

I dedicate this one to my long time partner in crime, Walker. A significant dear friend that I can’t live with… but would never live without.
