Week 20: meeting at work and nice views

Filed under: — Administrator @ 20:02

We had a meeting at the office to celebrate the 10th anniversary of our department, which as always provided me with some photo opportunities, including one rare photo of me. Aside from that, more of the same compared to last week: cycling, my mother’s Magic Cactus, and some nice views.

I start immodestly with a photo of me at our anniversary meeting, taken by my colleague Blanca with my camera:

My mother’s cactus continued to thrill us with flower, a cycle of life and death compressed into a few days:

When I do my pre-work bike rides in the morning, I do not stop for breaks or photos, since my focus is on getting the ride done and then go to the office. But one day, the hazy morning light was too beautiful to ignore. First I stopped during the initial few km along the beach:

From another ride, on Saturday morning, three cats in Verdegás eyeing me somewhat warily while I was getting my break:

But then they decided that I was not dangerous and did what cats do:

In the afternoon, we visited our Swiss/English friends Michael and Georgina in their apartment in Moraira, set in the hills above the town and with a fabulous view, which I photographed from their balcony with my 90mm Leica Tele-Elmarit:

To finish off the blog, a photo from the centre, while I was having an after-work beer at Malatesta. Two pigeons had selected a tasteful perch:
