The arrival

It was beyond her comprehension how she ended up in that situation. What was she thinking accepting a deal like that? Her arrival to that wedding was the grave of her freedom. She was tempted to ask the driver to turn back, to leave at once and let her flee to her freedom, maybe to a not-so-prosperous future but at least she would be free to make her own choices.

Street ninja

When I visited Valencia last April I was really surprised by the incredible amount and quality of graffiti… I crossed paths countless of times with this street ninja (?) made by the hand of David de Limón. I have to confess this one was my reference in El Carmen neighbourhood for not to get lost…

** Sorry for the quality of the photograph… I don’t have a scanner so I had to take a photo with my phone…


I took this photograph in Galway, Ireland, last summer. Even though the weather wasn’t as good as I wanted (I thought my cameras would drown on my backpack), I really enjoyed the views, the blue ocean and the different and eternal greens.

New old decay

I have a (strange) thing for old factories and industrial landscapes. They seem to have a halo of decay that surround them, a reminiscence of the past and an old symbol of technological progress.

This one was actually a thermal power plant now transformed into a museum about energy, in Ponferrada, León.

New old decay

Tengo un algo raro con viejas fábricas y paisajes industriales. Parecen tener un halo de decadencia que los rodea, una reminiscencia del pasado y un viejo símbolo del progreso tecnológico.

Ésta era en realidad una central térmica reconvertida en un museo sobre la energía, en Ponferrada, León.

The Shining

I took this photo last week in a hotel in Mataró, Spain. When I left the elevator and turn left to my room I saw this image and it reminded me of the movie The Shining, although I haven’t seen it nor read the book… (that’s how collective imagination works… but that’s another story)

Tomé esta foto hace una semana en un hotel de Mataró, en España. Cuando salí el ascensor y giré a la izquierda camino de mi habitaciónvi esta imagen y me recordó al instante a la película El Resplandor, pese a que no la he visto ni he leído el libro… (así es como trabaja el imaginario colectivo, aunque esto es otra historia)


The Capitol Building, also known as the Carrión building or the most popular “the one with the Schwepps sign”, is one of the most emblematic of Madrid’s architecture. Its neon light is always switched on, no matter when.

Capitol Building

Madrid + architecture = lots of photographs. I have countless of pictures of this building, the most recent ones are these. And I’m not even sure which one I prefer!

El Edificio Capitol, también conocido como Carrión, o el más popular “el de la señal de Schwepps”, es uno de los edificios emblemáticos de la arquitectura madrileña. Sus luces de neón están siempre encendidas, a todas horas.

Madrid + arquitectura = millones de fotos. Tengo incontables fotografías de este edificio, pero las más recientes son éstas. ¡Y ni siquiera puedo decidir cuál me gusta más!

Instant love: Old cars

It’s been a long time since I stopped by here… Once again, busy period for me *sigh*

Anyway, last week I went to an old car convention {sort of} that was held by in Coslada, Madrid. Despite the heat, it was really fun and curious, I loved some old cars I saw there {I fell in love with a red Mini Cooper}

I didn’t bring my Canon, I just took a few photos with my phone, the Zenit 11 and the Fuji 210, which are the theme of this post of course.

Ha pasado ya algún tiempo desde que pasé por aquí… De nuevo, ando bastante ocupada *sigh*

En fin, la semana pasada fui a una convención/ reunión de coches antiguos que organizaba en Coslada, Madrid. A pesar del calor, fue divertido y curioso, me gustaron mucho algunos coches antiguos que vi {me enamoré especialmente de un Mini Cooper rojo}

No me llevé la Canon, sólo hice algunas fotos con mi móvil, la Zenith y la Fuji 210, que son el tema de este post, por supuesto.
