Madrid


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.

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!')

HFF! Water Tower photo exhibition.

01 Oct 2020 58 81 242
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

An oldie, from 2012, first shown on ipernity in 2016. I didn't see it as HFF potential then but do now, seeing as I didn't have many fence shots early on!

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL MY IPERNITY FRIENDS!!!!

20 Dec 2013 73 154 1694
Plaza Chueca, Madrid. Christmas lights in the rain. First shown in 2016 on ipernity from a shot taken in 2013. I can't upload my new 2020 Christmas shot so a blast from the past will have to suffice!

Rose 'Daniel Gelin'

05 Jun 2013 44 38 701
El Retiro rose garden, Madrid. First shown in 2017. These are my favourite roses. I had them in a London garden but didn't take cuttings before I left and then spent 25 years looking for it! Not easy when I didn't have a name! But the colour is distinctive as is the dark green of the leaves (apparently an indication of an old variety). I did eventually spot it in a Portreath garden (Cornwall) and also a London front garden (in both cases the owners weren't in so I couldn't ask for a cutting) and then, miraculously in the rose garden of the Retiro park, Madrid!
