The last of Spain

Dan’s Thursday Doors

I have finished going through my travel folders and these are the final ones I found from Spain. Some of these are quite wonderful.

I thought I would start at the older looking door from Madrid. I love its little “hat”

What a solid looking door and surround. Pity I couldn’t get back far enough to get that door on the balcony as well

Another grand surround in Madrid. The door studs seem to be increasing

A relative new door in Granada. I love the colour and the metal grill above the door

Onto Barcelona with a doorway and door that has it all

Lastly just the most fabulous door and entrance. I really feel dwarfed by the size

Only a few more European doors to come

I found this quote and I had to use a recent photo of a Blue-banded Bee in my garden

Ragtag Daily Prompt Wednesday: Unpredictable

I often am asked about taking photos of birds in particular and how do get such good, they say, photos. It is all about patience and being at the right place at the right time. Nature photography is unpredictable. You can will your subject to just do what you would like. Even something as simple as turn around but…….

Weekly Prompt Wednesday Challenge: Wait
Fandango’s One Word Challenge: Plan

They got together
and made a plan
gather some
grass, feathers
even moss

Next was to
lay eggs….
so far
the plan was
going well

Now to sit
to wait
to sit
to wait
sit some more

Look this way
look that
but still
sit
and wait

One day
which seemed
an eternity
a crack
a peep

Oh dear
always hungry
can’t wait
just look at them
just hear them
always hungry

I just have
to ask
do you have
this going on
every day

Do you know
what I mean?
You make a plan
you wait
you are tired
Do you know
what I mean?

Drive some, park some

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Things People Drive

I had a few ideas of what I was going to post but was having second thoughts. Here are the things that people drive I dug out of my folders.

In our country towns you never know what may come driving down the street. I was going to ask for a lift 😁

Strolling the streets of Florence I found the smallest car I have ever seen

A hot rod with amazing paint job at a local car show during the Jacaranda Festival

My car will never be this shiny

This car had a lot of people around it at a car show in town last year. I had to wait a while until the crowd cleared. It has a vintage caravan as well

Something that city folk will never see. It is easier to pop down to the local servo than have to transfer fuel from a drum
