Yesterday I took many photos of the JORNADA DE RECUPERACION DE OFICIOS ANTIGUAS – TERQUE and posted these on www.countryhouseinspain.wordpress.com. what I dis not include was this portrait of a girl on the baker’s stall. A lovely Spanish beauty.
We are growing more peppers in our new cortijo than we can eat so this morning I picked this caja full and took it to Antonio of Bar/Retaurant Perez in the square at Alhabia so they could be incorporated into the delicious tapas and meals they serve there. I like the colours – typical Spain.
A photo I took yesterday in the nearby village of Torque. Most of the photos I took were of the magnificent buildings in the village – see – https://countryhouseinspain.wordpress.com/2017/08/13/casas-monumentales-terque/ – but I thought I would add this one to this blog as I thought it was an interesting exercise in colour, texture and composition.
A photo I took yesterday afternoon of the outside washing corner of my neighbour, Ute’s cottage in Las Negras.
Photograph taken on the beach at El Cuervo, Las Negras this afternoon.

We went for a walk up through the old quarter of Almeria, La Chanca , this morning. The little houses here are painted in many different hues making the area very colourful despite the decay and poverty. This house I thought was particularly charming.
