Picture of the Week

Week 47: Autumn cycling, mostly

Filed under: — Administrator @ 07:05

Not much happened during the week other than work and just life. The pictures are from my neighbourhood, my office, and (mostly) from my weekend outings on two wheels.

First a few things I saw while walking my dog during the week, starting with these autumn leaves–it is only now, in late November, that we really get leaves on the ground here:

Then on to some bicycling images. The routes I follow usually include both the coast and the country roads in the interior.

Prostitute’s chair, near San Fulgencio. A curious feature of this part of Spain is the one sees prostitutes not only in cities, as one might expect, but also in the countryside, and often, like here, in the middle of nowhere:

And finally two pictures from office-related activities.

Our lobby in the morning, illuminated by the rising sun. The statue is by a Swedish sculptor whose name escapes me:

Finally, on Friday night the wine club Bacchus held its end-of-year dinner at a local restaurant. As is often the case, Corinne provided me with a photo opportunity. I think she looks like Mr. Bean in this picture:
