HFF everyone. (better on full screen).

HFF everyone. (better on full screen).
From the public gardens of the Canal de Isabel II (a waterworks company) across Calle Santa Engracia (my street) and to 'Fire Station Number I, Madrid', the oldest fire station (1892).
The light was very bright that day and the pollution non-existant (still far fewer cars on the roads and far fewer planes above - in fact last week I heard a noise and thought; 'what on Earth is that?' ... Of course it was the near-forgotten sound of an aircraft!!)

A great street view beyond the fence, I've not seen the very high jets that normally go over, they altered the flight path to EMA so I don't see them now that has remained busy because it is second to Heathrow for freight , the number of cars going by is increasing :(( I hope you have a HFF and that your weekend is a nice one Andy

This is beautiful Amdy. The view through the fence is perfectly framed by the greenery and I love the lavender. It must smell wonderful there. HFF and have a good weekend

Yes, I stopped to blow my nose and as I looked up I saw a bit of potential for a good compo!

I like the lavender too and can imagine it's smell. We hardly ever hear planes here and, when we do it's mostly military ones from Leuchars near St Andrews. The only local planes are gliders. When I was able to go up the Bishop hill I could walk along level with the pilots and give them a wave.

Like I used to wave at the train drivers as they passed by the back of my Great-grandfather's house in Bakewell, Derbyshire when I were knee-high t' grasshopper! (Line long gone and Bakewell Station closed in '68).

Thank you, Roger,
Actually I didn't smell the lavender. I think it's because the smell of lavender has been everywhere, even in the city. But it's OK; I can smell everythkng else, so not an indication of the dreaded lurgy!
