More often that we’d like to admit, we seek beauty in the extraordinary, in one-in-a-life-time events, the uncommon, but we forget that beauty can be found in the most ordinary objects.
Being too close to something may cause blurry sight, the object, the problem, the circumstance seems out of focus, unreachable, without a solution.
Maybe it’s the moment to put some distance and try to focus our sight again.
Architecture that seems out of a dream, a building with impossible structure and endless points of view, the perfect theme for photography.
El Rastro is the most famous flea market of Madrid, where you can find the most common things among the most incredible and curious.
Besides the promise of great photographs, the history of the market is quite interesting: its name, rastro, came from the old days where in here there were the tanneries, so the trace (rastro) of the blood came down the street. The main street is Ribera de Curtidores (lit. Tanners bank) but the adjacent streets are reserved for specific objects: art, books, stickers… It’s the perfect place to spend a Sunday morning, and after all the looking, the haggling and the curiosities, what a better plan to go La Latina to have a cold beer (or two)

Back to the blog after a long long time, a journey of doubts, heat (I really hate summer) and tiredness. September is around the corner (and my holidays, too) and it’s time to make new starts, new goals… or maybe old goals with new perspectives.
Slowly everything settles.
