An arresting sight! And a deeply unpleasant one, to my mind! Window seen in Mogarraz, Salamanca Province.

It's seen better days.

Probably uninhabited. There are many properties like this in the villages of rural Spain. Here, in Mogarraz, not so many as it is a touristy place.

Penzance Harbour. HFF!

Lichen and fence shadow on harbour roadside edge. HFF. Sorry about the very early posting but, again, I'm not sure where I'll be this evening and tomorrow!

Very tempted to give it a little shove!

Granite, Sierra de La Cabrera. Las Torres de El Cancho Largo on the horizon.

The greatest fence I ever did see!

HFF everybody and I hope the uploading problems are fixed very soon! Also H.A.N.W.E.!

My picnic table in summer. Sierra de La Cabrera

I have posted this granite oddity before - in a foggy December setting. This was taken in the heat of an August day but the breeze you can get on the ridge here takes the edge off the stifling heat down below.

HFF! Colombia metro station, Madrid

There is a logical explanation for this sculpture which was noted on my Pano upload of this shot but which was stolen by Google and I can't now remember what it is! Anyway I find the effect quite surreal!

Mar de Cristal Metro Station, Madrid

Typical of the Madrid metro designs in its great expansive phase from about 1995 to the onset of the recession and, deliberately over-edited by me, this represents a positive, thrusting, energetic attitude that faltered somewhat when the recession struck. However the legacy has left a metro network that, in large parts. exudes a dynamic upbeat feel that is very seductive. It still needs to be paid for, however!

Happy Fence Friday!

Rhodochriton (sometimes called Purple Bell Vine). A climber originally from Southern Mexico and Guatamala. It is very happy in Cornwall! Garden in Saint Day, Cornwall

Accidental shot on the Madrid metro. But I was pleased that I had polished my shoes that morning! It's like your Mum making sure you always had clean underwear on 'because, you never know, you might be hit by a bus'!!!!

Shortlands Station. South East London. I visited my brother briefly last year and took this after exiting (amazingly steadily) from the Shortlands Pub.

Parque de Juan Carlos I

Purpose-built 1980s park in northeast Madrid (but then I suppose that ALL parks are 'purpose-built'), full of grandiose metallic sculptures and broad vistas much beloved of surfboarders and roller skaters (I'm not 100% certain of the vocabulary here as maybe one of these activities is related to water rather than land?? I'm floundering as neither activity interests me in the slightest!) and whatever is fashionable in such circles these days.

HFF!!! Cuatro Torres and sculpture, Chamartin rail…

The sculpture: "A LA DIVERSIDAD HUMANA" Sculpture by Josep Capella and Clara Capo. I have Steve Drury to thank for finding the title from my Pano gallery when I thought Google had erased all notes and comments!

Saint Day. Dull day.

Not all Cornish photos can be full of exciting clifftops, dramatic skies or sunny days.

This is pleasing artwork to me and makes worthwhile use of material which would otherwise have been discarded.

Calle de Orellana, Madrid

Sadly, these wall murals were whitewashed over last year. Photo taken in May 2013, not in 2012 as per the exif!

View from my (very occasional) bedroom window, ear…

Dawn, August 2014. St Day, Cornwall. Well, it's still my bedroom window even if I haven't spent more than 10 nights here in the past 5 years! The building in front is the annexe to my parents house. It comprises a good sized ground floor kitchen and on the upper floor bedrooms and a bathroom. This annexe used to be a temporary bedding down place for tin miners who had worked a late shift; the property being in the possession of a tin mine captain. Poldice Valley seen in the distance and with a chimney just visible, was a world centre of arsenic mining and production. Even today, 150 years later , nothing grows there and certainly no houses can be be built on the poisoned land. The life expectancy of the miners was horrendous! Not all Cornwall is romantic!!!
