corner view "street photography"








I walked around in between rain drops and shot some of the prettiest streets in Vitoria. The last shot is where I´ll meet you for a coffee.

And while we are on the subject... Next week´s theme is "coffee companion". Dear Cate do you mind picking the next theme? Thanks!

Ian said...

There is a touch of melancholy in the Spanish winter.

Have you ever seen El Espíritu de la Colmena?

Dorte said...

Beautiful shots, Jane, Vitoria looks very nice! Would love to see you for coffee :)

la ninja said...

very pretty.
however, a tad too clean and manicured that city of yours, don't you find?
let's mess it up a bit. anyone? :)

the film ian mentions is indeed fantastic yet sober and melancholic. the post-(civil)war period in spain was not a jolly time.

soisses said...

when i see your pics, i want to make holiday... very nice...

l i s e said...

nice shots
happy thursday!

Cathy said...

All of your photos are just lovely. I would love to see Spain one day.

life in yonder said...

Your streets look so tidy and clean. No mountains of snow inbetween the cars... just clean streets.

Francesca said...

It looks like a very pretty place, with a small town feel to it. What is it like living there?

kristina - no penny for them said...

these are lovely jane, they give us a real feel of vitoria. i can picture you sitting you in that café and wish i could hop over for a quick coffee and a chat!

i'm so sorry i have missed quite a few corner views these last few weeks, things have been mad here. i hope to jump back onto the train soon. x

Liss said...

This looks like a wonderful place to meet for a coffee and a stroll
