Walking with my camera

Most days I go out walking for an hour or two … rehabilitation after I fractured my ankle. Mainly walking the streets of my town that is not that big. And I bring my camera, of course.

Thought I had walked most of the streets when I discovered somewhere I had not been before. Love when that happens. The view of the town from that spot is kind of “from the back” and there is just so many details to look at.

Pilgrimage

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.
