This week the challenge was any kind of camera or photographers. I just went out to take a walk around and found three different kind of camera at work on the streets near my home. Here they are.
My choice are images related with water
I love the brilliant colours of the flowers above all in Spring. They lift my spirits. I enjoy taking pictures of them at the park. Here are some of the images.
It’s not exactly a jungle, but it has green and exuberance.
Some images from last Spring
Heavy rains and snow have ruined the flowers in the park. I only have found these survivors
Show us the effects of gravity in your photo this week.
This big guy was apparently trying to start a flight from his perch in the park without success. Maybe to heavy?. Who knows!. Anyway, after quite a show flapping his wings, he finally jumped down to the water to float peacefully with the other ducks and reach the shore where he began to walk awkwardly towards his nest, concealed behind a bush.
A visit to the market
Some weeks ago, there was a medieval fair in my neighbourhood and a group of men came to show us how do they worked at the old forging. They brought a furnace to melt the iron, an anvil and a huge collection of hammers and tongs and mesh gloves , leather aprons, and many other instruments. They worked hard to turn the formless iron bars in hoes and other farm tools. When the iron was hot, four or five of them began to hammer with lot of strength. The rhythmic metallic sound filled all the square. The sound dominated over a very strange group that was making what they said it was medieval music all clothed in black, with their faces painted.

I’ve been walking by the river’s bank this morning. It was a cold but gorgeous day. I’ve even crossed the river with my walker thru the narrow pedestrian bridge without railings to take pictures. Only a few weeks ago I wouldn’t have dared to do something like that out of fear to fall down, because I need help to walk. I ventured alone. The bridge is so narrow I was afraid that my walker could fall to the water while I was taking pictures, but it has brakes and nothing bad happened. I’ve had to put it just in the edge, to let the walkers could pass. The little bridge had a lot of traffic. A group of youngsters passed running, and several people walking. An old man stopped by to talk with me. another man helped me with my walker to climb some stairs along the path. I’m glad I had that odd confidence in myself. It was worth it. Here are some of the pictures I took.
What subject keeps you coming back? This week, show us your muse. I love taking pictures of my neighbourhood and its people.
My city is one of the main stages of the Way of St. James or Camino de Santiago. Through our streets, we see everyday dozens of pilgrims with their backpacks, walking towards the next stage. Some of them wear the shell, symbol of the pilgrimage. From our city (Pamplona) they have to walk 700.5 kilometres (about 435 miles) to reach Santiago. Three or four weeks walking through paths and roads with stops in special hostels prepared for them all along the way. They come from all around the world. Here are pictures of some of the ones I met this morning.
Here are some pictures of the river how it looks today. It almost covered the bridges, and the water reached some buildings.
Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes, Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes, Silver white winters that melt into springs, These are a few of my favorite things.
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, Bright copper kettles, and warm woolen mittens, Brown paper packages tied up with strings, These are a few of my favorite things
Here there are some old pictures of the big bridges of San Francisco and a new one of a tiny bridge in my city.
Gone but not forgotten are my years in San Francisco. The pictures I took back then remind me those wonderful days
This is another picture of the Pacific Ocean taken the same year.
And this is the skyline of San francisco in a typical foggy day
It’s a big world out there! Show us what you see in a landscape.
Capture a fleeting moment and experiment with blur and movement.
Study architectural forms, and also train your eye to look for shots that will translate well in black and white
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.
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.
I feel that the place I live is far away from home. My home is my family and my remembrances.
