Southern Spain's countryside looks like a desert in the Summer, but as green as Ireland in the winter. While driving away from Merida I ended up in Trujillo, a beautiful medieval city 60-70 kms away. A wonderful place, very well preserved, and also hometown to one of Spain's most famous "conquistadores", Francisco Pizarro (a hero to Spaniards, and a murderer in Amerindian eyes) . The main plaza has a statue in his memory. I was there for a few hours before heading home to Lisbon, 350kms away, and took these pictures. Definitely a place to retun in the future.

Great colors in these pictures! Aside from the wonderful subject matter these not only stand out from the color, but I also like the angles.

Milan said...

Thank you all guys for passing by (Eva, regressa mais vezes). Z., of course I'll be your guide, so just come! It's one more reason for me to travel a bit as well :)))) Regarding the pictures, it's precisely that Lomo look you just mentioned that I've tried to achieve :) Actually, I'm getting so fond of it that I'm kind of overdoing it!

Alfred said...

Have to say I totally agree when people say the photos look like "Lomo-pictures" Really cool effect.
I also like what you say about the Spanish hero, and how people look at it differently. Kill one, and you`re a murderer. Kill 10.000, and you`re a war-hero. Doesn`t make sense to me...

As Z I really love medieval places!

And your photos are so cool, as always!!

I love the black frame of it and the new blog-theme!

You're a great photographer! :)
