A favourite tree. HFF everyone!

The Retiro Park, Madrid. I've liked this tree since my first visit to see my sister in Madrid, back in 1981 (and somewhere I may just have some slides of me, my sister and my old school French exhange partner all sitting on this tree! I will try and find them - but on reflection, they've long since disappeared, sadly!)

El Pardo is the large park (former royal hunting territory) to the northwest of Madrid.

HFF everyone!

Oleander, Parque de Santander, Madrid. Oleander is ubiquitous in Central and Southern Spain (and Portugal) and its flowers are either red, pink or white. It is used as a border on Spanish motorways in Andalucia (and California, I am reliably informed).

Autumn ginkgo

Quite spectacular colours for a week or two. (I can't remember if 'quite' in American English means very or is a more non-descript 'ok - ish' because in British English it could mean either, depending on the context. Here I most definitively mean 'very'!)

Torre A

Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, Madrid. Sept 2020. I was driven past here yesterday and it still didn't look any further completed even though they have resumed playing matches here this season.

Puente de Toledo, Madrid

Rio Manzanares can just be seen trickling between the trees, with the millennium Bridge in the distance..

A future HFF shot, perhaps.

Príncipe Pío, old and new.

14 Apr 2013 51 57 405
Príncipe Pío metro and mainline station, Madrid. Modern escalator handrail and much older ironmongery. One for Project 21 from the archives on the theme of transport just before entries close ('in the nick of time!')

Hospital de Maudes

Former hospital, now govt. offices. Just round the corner from where I lived till recently. www.ipernity.com/doc/2247598/album/1277734

HFF! Water Tower photo exhibition.

01 Oct 2020 58 79 330
The Madrid water company Canal de Isabel II turned this old water depository into an exhibition centre. Fine if you don't mind climbing many steps! This is the top level of 5. Better on black.

Estadio Santiago Bernabéu. Work in progress.

I last took a shot here 6 months ago (I've moved out of the area). I thought there would have been more progress but it seems not much really. Full screen best for this I think. www.ipernity.com/doc/2247598/album/1279798

The tall and thin sculpture to the right of the shot is called, irreverently, the Hypodermic Needle.
