it´s all in the details

I´ve been in Madrid hanging out with my baby girl. I didn´t take many pictures because I was too busy being dragged from shop to shop.  I did fit in a retrospective on Eugene Delacroix. I have a thing for handsome painters who have been dead for over a 100 years... and who were probably gay.... ;)

Hope you are having a great week! Big hugs!

I was in Madrid last week - what a great city! Loved it. Found a fab shop near Opera called Tierra Recicla on Bordadores 4. Also excited by a shop that just sells felt! But loved Mercado de San Miguel and the Thyssen Borzemsia collection.

Hope you had fun with your daughter!

I enjoyed these photos because it gives me inspiration to be more original in what I photograph myself. To look more and see more. It is all out there, but you can't photograph it if you don't see it. Now there's my middle of the night insomnia infused wisdom. I'm sure you were just waiting for that ;)

You have this thing with Madrid, haven´t you? ;-) I hope your girl is settling well into University life.
Loved the Rioja photos by the way, I went harvesting once to the vineyards of a friend of mine, all I remember is that we were eating all the time (Rioja style, chorizo, salchichón, queso, pimientos...), I went back home with a back pain and a belly ache! Besos!
