Week 43: mountains and home

Filed under: — Administrator @ 21:19

It is a truly mixed bag this week. Not only is there a variety of subjects, but I also used all my equipment.

On the last full day of my sister’s visit, we drove inland to have a look at the mountains:

Besides my Olympus E3, I also took the Bronica 645 with me, loaded with a roll of Fuji Neopan 400 film. This was only my fifth roll of film this year. The next three pictures are from that roll.

The alternates

Another shot of the mountains in fog:

A common sight in the Spanish countryside, an abandoned farmhouse:

The graffiti “artists” have got to this one:

The rest of this week’s images are from around where I live and work.

The view from my terrace early in the morning:

Alternate 5
A scene from the Mercado Central in downtown Alicante:

Alternate 6
Dogs and legs near my house:

Alternate 7
Our backyard faces a golf course, inhabited by a family of swans. Sometimes they come very close to our back fence:

Alternate 8
Very close indeed:

Alternate 9
Near my office there is a ruin that once housed a bar or night club:

Alternate 10
Not much action there these days:

Alternate 11
Some homeless people have taken up residence, as evidenced by the makeshift curtain:

Alternate 12
In the same area, a sign of the times. Everyone is taling about “la crisis”:

Alternate 13
To finish the week, something completely different. My co-worker Sandro and his wife have been waiting 5 years to adopt two children (yes, they wanted two). A couple of weeks ago lightning struck. The agency called them to inform them that a pair of 10-month old twins were theirs, right here in Alicante. On Wednesday, Sandro stopped by the office to show off his new pride and joy:

  1. I like you main image best this week. It has a look to it like the landscapes from Ansel Adams. Maybe some LCE could lower the influence of the mist somewhat, but don’t overdo it. Congratulations to Sandro and his two new boys. The boy looks much wiser than 10 months old. Very much in peace with the situation also.
