La Chanca and the Alcazaba

This old quarter of Almeria above the fishing port and overlooked by the Alcazaba is probably the most colourful part of the city. It is also one of the poorest and please take a look at the other photos I took today, which I shall shortly be posting on http://www.countryhouseinspain.wordpress.com, to get a broader view.

I love the colours and textures of the paint and wood.

Another photo from my visit to Granada last week. The Alhambra provides a stunning backdrop to this tranquil composition of the garden of the Mezquita next to the busy Mirador de San Nocolas in the Albaicin.

Granada street scene

Most of my photos are posted in the blog http://countryhouseinspain.wordpress.com and you can see a report and straight photos of my visit there a few days ago on the link above. I digitally enhanced this street scene on photoshop. I think it is quite an interesting composition and effect.

Ulli Butz with his Indalinas

The German metal sculptor, Ulli Butz, was at the monthly street craft market in Las Negras this morning. Ulli likes to create individual pieces but his trademark over the last few years has been his metal sunflowers. Today he revealed a “new line”. This is a female version of the symbol of Almeria – Indalo Man – “Indalina”.

Here I have played with the images in HDR toning on photoshop. In this feature I have used saturation and vibrance to boost colour, gamma to take out shadow and contrast and increased the detail and strength.
