Photographs of Sunny Spain

It's a dreary November day here in the NorthEast, and while sorting and editing photos I came across my daughter her partner's photographs taken in Spain last Spring, 2009.  I have their permission to publish them here.  The ones I have chosen are a few street scenes, buildings, archways found in Seville, Grenada and Cordoba in the south.  Join me on a leisurely stroll through narrow streets in warm, sunny Spain . . .

  3. Not really fair, Bonnie, pictures of gloomy Canada would have left me less depressed.
    They'd fit in so much better with what I see out of the window.

  6. Thanks, Bonnie! What an upbeat thing to share! I like the peach-colored walls of the courtyard and all the narrow passages with profusions of flowers. It's been a dismal day here, too, and these photos definitely brighten the spirits. xxox

  7. Beautiful scenes of snow white buildings Bonnie, but in the second photo the outcropping above looks strange. Is it built into the side of a cliff?

  8. Wanda: That's exactly what it is. The buildings are built into the space under an overhang of rock in cliff-face. A little disconcerting to my mind - but I guess they figure the cliff is not going to budge. Hope they're right!

  14. I love these photos because they display what is best about spain, the mix of its Arabic and Iberian cultures. Your images also remind me of my beloved Havana and Trinidad in Sancti Spiritus. Many thanks to you, your daughter and her partner for such a wonderful tour.

    Greetings from London.

  16. These images conjure such a feeling of crispness, and warm, healthy living.
    I love the architecture and the wrought iron, especially! I also love the terra cotta colour in the bottom photo. I painted my dining room and adjoining kitchen a very similar colour as it's so warm and inviting.

    Hope all is well in your world, dear Bonnie!

  17. Not only some interesting architecture but also the angles used make for a unique perspective! The colors are vivid and its very much what you imagine Spain to look like. I am sure it was a lovely trip.

  18. Great pictures. Now i want to visit Spain! It is amazing how the white-washed buildings were built right into the rock overhang.

  19. I know what you mean about the weather Bonnie; so a getaway to sunny Spain was just what the doctor ordered.

    Your daughter's photos have certainly brightened my gloomy Toronto day.

  20. Love the walkways, stairs, terraces, and flowers. Beautiful images!

  21. Well, you certainly brought sun and warmth to a chilled, overcast November day! I walked along side of the buildings, looked at the flowers and greenery, marveled at the rock formation above the building, and all in all enjoyed a delightful virtual tour.

    Thanks to you and the traveling photographers.

  23. Gorgeous! I'd love to go back to Spain. I enjoy your photos of Canada too.

    I'm a big fan of Canada today - Harper Collins USA was out of ARCs for the book (Darklight) I want to review so HC in Canada sent me one of theirs. The author, Lesley Livingston, is a Canadian too. My review/interview is scheduled for January.
