what happens when you get a bunch of spaniards together?

There are usually bulls involved...


(Francisco Marco)




Don´t you think bullfighters have the nicest... capes...?

P.S. No bulls were harmed in the making of this post... ¡Besos!

Chris and I went to a bull fight in Seville on our honeymoon. I wasn't crazy about the idea (especially once we were in our "sol" seats) - but I had to admit, the drama and pageantry were pretty intoxicating. And when the sun went down I barely noticed the overly perfumed smell of greasy haired dandy in Burberry pants in front of me who blocked every picture I tried to take.

I love the color in your pictures. wish I was there.

Lovely post! Photo nr. 2 counting from the top is my favourite. That photo "is" spain to me. I can almost hear the buzz around the table.

Ocean Girl said...

So colorfully Spain.

I love the pictures, they are magazines material.

So I was getting all righteous and was going to comment that I've NEVER done that when getting together with my friends... but then I realized that of course I have! :) I particularly remember the capeas I use to go to with my Secondary school, those were SO MUCH fun!
As always, you're making me miss Spain!

Yes, I agree the colors are smashing. I think us Americans live in a colorless world compared to most Countries.

Dorit said...

amazing colours, love your photos - as always :)

Cherry B said...

Nice capes indeed! This reminds me of a George Strait video, less the dip can :)

ladybug-zen said...

Allison said...

Brilliant photos... but as you could imagine, when Germans get together is has nothing to do with bulls, but with beer.

Guusje said...

No bulls harmed! That sounds like music to me!!! Happy monday, X Guusje

Sammi said...

I think some of them bulls are a bit tiny to do any damage, haha. i love bullfighting, i am all for tradition!!

ticklishfromadistance said...

kim said...

janis said...

I am thankful for that...

The light in these photos is amazing, and the bull fighter's "cape"... amazing too ;)

Kari said...

I love the first picture - that pink is beautiful.
It's different not to see the traditional red...or is it traditional?
Happy week.

KathyA said...

Yes, the 'capes' are quite firm, er nice.

MUS said...

wow, wonderful.
great week

Jeannette said...

Now I can´t stop looking at the cape! ;)
And the rest of the pictures are a feast for the eye too!

Crescent Moon said...

I like Ian's answer, but you pictures are great. We just got back from spending the weekend in St. Augustine so I'm torn between answering that title question with a "Catholic Mission" or "Conquistadors".

Inner Toddler said...

what a post! ole!

jgy said...

Wow, those colors!
You know how to have fun there, Jane:)

julochka said...

nothing quite like a little bull...

and i love the capes, they're gorgeous!

ibb said...

I must confess that I haven´t go to any capeas or similar. When we were children, there were feast with bulls involved in nearly all the villages... Running in front of them, looking how my father and brother run...Now they are colourful pictures

Cabrizette said...

Capeas !! colorful !

Bohemian girl said...

Those two women in their short sleeves, they are amazing, their eyes just shine! What a light there!c3rnosh3

Just had to say hi as I found your blog today. We just came back from Spain, but looking forward to going back soon. I love the Spanish traditions. Great photos!(another Jane in England)

Eliane Zimmermann said...

i guess that now that i managed to go for nearly a year of 12-of-12ers i could sign up for cv as well as i offer regular cornerviews anyway! how does it work, does it take place on a certain day? or is the theme for any day of the particular week? muchos besos (i was brought up in chile but i hardly recall more than those words!!! ;-))) eliane from ireland

ci et là said...

It's a pity that I'm not good enough in English to understand everything about your blog… I like it anyway.

Ian said...

Hi Jane, is there a Corner View theme for this week?

MODsquad said...

The colors in this post are fantastic! Lovely viewing on a cold day like today!

Happy Day, Jane!

laméditerraine said...

mmmm was that a capea?
There's a lot of fun there, I think.When my uncle got married they hosted one for his stag party.
Mmm... I think the best part of the bullfighters is their bottom.I never undertood why some people said they're sportists, but when I realised those bottom I figured it out xD

lots of kisses from this HOT Valencia.

Kickcan and Conkers said...

Nice photos. Lovely and colourful. We live in the south of France where the bullfighting culture is strong too (near Nîmes).

rinomata said...
