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 🙂
I am looking for light in my house … places, corners shadows. The light in the afternoon by the front door is casting soft, long shadows.
And it is the season for pears. These ones are very sweet and firm.
These roses and many more grow on a small patch just around the corner from my house. I think the neighbours in the street have planted them and take care of them.
