Picture of the Week

20 August 2008

Week 33: back home

Filed under: — Administrator @ 06:58

After all the excitement of Berlin the previous week, this week was a bit thin, photographically speaking. It is August, it is hot, and not much is happening in Alicante, except on the beaches.

Main
This is Postiguet beach in the centre of town on a typical Sunday afternoon:

The alternates
:

Alternate 1
Jesus on the beach:
8170286

Alternate 2
I took Wednesday afternoon off to be with my family–it was our 25th wedding anniversary. We started with an afternoon visit at the beach bar. Here is my son, imitating the Miami Vice look:
8130278

Alternate 3
The wind was blowing hard from the sea, and I got my daughter to loosen her hair for photographic purposes:
8130281

Alternate 4
Another cute waitress:
8163795

Then a couple of morning pictures.

Alternate 5
The golf course is watered daily:
8113761

Alternate 6
A street in the centre of Alicante. The water in the middle is not from rain, but rather a result of the street having been hosed down earlier in the morning. We have not had rain here for about two months:
8120274

Alternate 7
Morning paper:
8143788

Finally, a couple from our backyard swimming pool.

Alternate 8
I tried to capture Cheeta in the decisive moment:
8133779

Alternate 9
It is too hot to play tennis, but at least the balls are useful:
8133776
