Week 11: beach and dogs

Filed under: — Administrator @ 13:22

By coincidence, this week has a decidedly canine theme. Not by design, it is simply that most of the pictures were taken while I was walking around, and there are lots of dogs in Spain.

Main
Postiguet beach, centre of Alicante:
L1002976


The alternates
:

Alternate 1
Sunday morning, people eat breakfast at a bar on Avenida Vicente Ramos. The Spanish frequently eat breakfast outside the home:
L1002975

Alternate 2
Two dogs exchange pleasantries on the beachfront promenade:
L1002977

I often take a motorcycle ride to one of the small towns inland. Sunday I rode to Busot, a village I have shown before.

Alternate 3
Clearly, I was not the only one who had this idea:
L1002981

Alternate 4
Busot is a very sleepy town indeed:
L1002996

Alternate 5
People hang trash bags on hooks, presumably to avoid that passing dogs rip them up in search for scraps:
L1002997

Alternate 6
In the town centre there is a source from which mineral water flows. You put in a coin and fill your bottle:
L1002980

Than back to Alicante, and more pictures from various walks.

Alternate 7
This is the beach that is closest to my house, about 1.5 km:
L1003003

Alternate 8
It also serves as a low-rent marina:
L1003006

Alternate 9
A little dog is waiting while the family’s children have fun on the carrousel:
L1003204

The final three images are from El Campello, the northern suburb of Alicante.

Alternate 10
A man walks home with a bottle bought at a local bar:
L1003207

Alternate 11
Man and friend at the beach:
L1003212

Alternate 11a
After receiving several comments from people who liked the photo above, but did not like the colours, I have included a B&W version:
L1003212

Alternate 12
After taking the picture above, I asked the man to pose for me with his friend:
L1003209
