One of the main sights in my town is the castle. It was first built by the Phonicians, then expanded by the Romans, almost destroyed by the Visigoths in the 5th century and then rebuilt by the Moors.
The castle opens at 8 o’clock in the morning and at this time of the year the sun rises a little bit after 8 o’clock so going up there to see the sun rising and the daylight taking over is a very nice way to start the day.
Yellow in Autumn is really pretty and oh, how it brightens up the wet and grey days.
Just been on a short visit to Copenhagen to visit family.
Today we changed the clock to Winter time … and temperature has been winter like.
The other Sundays this month I have been enjoying walks along the sea in nice sunny 20+ C weather.
These photos are from the last stretch of beach to the west of Málaga city. The tourists have gone and the seagulls had taken over. At least for a little while.
Sunday after the 8th of September is the day of the annual pilgrimage to escort the patron of Álora, la Virgen de las Flores, back to her sanctuary after nine days in the parroquial church of Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación. The virgin is escorted by carts, wagons, tractors, people on horsebacks, and people on foot.
It’s a big day in town … and it’s a big day for photographers of all kinds.
June, July and August … wow, these months have passed very fast and at the same time very slow.
I broke my ankle the last day of May and have therefore not been able to go out and about as I usually do.
I have been home … and have had time to sort out all my pics = deleting like half of them. Until Spring I used mainly Adobe Lightroom, a bought version, to organize and develop my pics. However, Lightroom started to crash and when I looked into it, found out that it was due to Mac updates.
I really do not like the concept of subscribing to Adobe so I have downloaded the free Adobe Bridge to help me with the overview and organization of my pics. It is not as nice and easy and convenient as Lightroom, but it is ok, especially because it is free. Quitting Lightroom also meant that I was forced to get to use the Affinity Photo that I bought when it was still in Beta to develop and edit … and yes, it is a rather different routine than doing everything in Lightroom, but so far I am very pleased with Affinity though I still have a lot to learn.
So, over the Summer I have not been out taking photographs. But I have a cool roof terrace that I have been able to climb … on one leg, to photograph a bit. Here is a small collection of the stuff I can see from there 🙂
