What’s the most important (or interesting, or unexpected) thing about blogging you know today that you didn’t know a month ago?
What can I say? I have blogged for years, so almost nothing new under the sun during the last month. I know what I knew before, that I enjoy writing posts and be in contact with a community of bloggers from around the globe. I like the idea of the daily prompts, so we all can write about the same subject and share ideas. I like interesting and innovative prompts and I hate recurrent prompts and boring stuff. I think today’s prompt was made thinking on the young, new bloggers and not on the veterans, too many times apparently forgotten by the editors of the daily prompt.
With all my experience I have to say that I learnt something interesting this last month. I participated in the course Photography 101 with challenges and tips to improve my photos, so now I’ve a little bit more confident to post them.
My triumph was to finish this course without missing an assignment. So my picture depicts the end of a journey.

Today, pay attention to how color affects your images. Experiment with one color, and think about how to feature it prominently.
I pay attention to red. Red means a lot of things, among them warning and prohibition. These benches have in themselves a warning. Don’t stop! It’s raining!
I couldn’t help but take a picture of the leaves on the ground because how the color popped.

The interior of the music kiosk in the castle’s square in Pamplona, Spain
Photography 101: Landmark.
I live in Pamplona, Spain, the city of the running of the bulls in the fiesta of San Fermín. We have a monument that has become quite popular in the city. Here’s a view of the monument and a detail. Today it was a rainy day, so the light is a bit gloomy.

Public squares are a great places to connect with people in Spain. Above all when the weather is sunny.

I feel that the place I live is far away from home. My home is my family and my remembrances.
