I may have a future as an archivist after all, since apparently I’ve gotten more comfortable with always having a backlog I just keep slogging through. By this I mean, I’ve caught up on Flickr uploads…through 2011! Success?
One of the really fun parts about going through old photos is reminiscing about fun times, creative moments, a certain kind of light, a really amazing meal. I thought I’d share a few more photos from my trip to Spain…in October/November 2011. Because it’s Friday and I’m feeling nostalgic.
Since I flew into and out of Madrid, those are the bookends on my trip. I took so many photos in 10 days (which is a big reason why I got so behind on Flickr) that I thought I’d split this into three posts: Madrid coming and going, Barcelona, and Córdoba, my old stomping grounds. Thank you for humoring me.
A few from Madrid’s newly renovated Mercado de San Antón:
Chueca, the shoe district (or the gay district, with shoe stores. see it as you will):
The one that got away:
Street used booksellers. I love coming across them.
I love how Madrid can be at once so modern and so traditional:
I’ve spent a fair amount of time in Atocha train station, but I still really love sitting in this space.
(also, the little old man with his hands behind his back is SO SPANISH.)
More soon. Fun weekend plans? I think I might be taking a trek out of town to find…barbecue.
