weekend outtakes






15,000 candles lit along the streets of the old part of town in celebration of the festival of light... Snow and freezing temperatures... Birthday lunch in Tolosa...
I´m out the door. I´ll announce the winners tomorrow. Wishing you warm sunshine or cool breezes- depending on which side of the world you are on...

¡Dos besos!
