The Spectator

The Spectator

This photo was taken in the dark last night at a concert given by the Town Band in the square of my village, Alhabia. Most of the spectators were seated in the square but this man, sitting on a doorstep in the doorway of an old building caught my eye. No special effects but the fact it was taken on an iPhone in portrait mode and at night almost gives the photo the appearance of a painting and I love the colours.

The Pink Dressing Gown

The pink dressing gown

I photographed this dressing gown hanging on a washing line against the wall of this old cottage in my village of Alhabia, when I walked past this morning. I liked the colour contrast of the bright pink garment against the flaking plaster and paint of the wall, the textures and composition. The dressing gown is the standard garment for women in the villages of Andalucia in winter and early spring and they often wear them in the streets.
