Sevilla

Tango is for Argentina, Flamenco is for Andalusia - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

Before walking into the room, my expectations were lukewarm.  Though, I did not stay in that state for long.  As soon as the lights were down and the guitar started playing, I was singing, moving, feet tapping the floor, hands up in the air clapping, bottom of skirt sweeping... in my dreams. :-)

Fortunately, I did not lose all my senses and forget my position as an audience, and people in the row before me. :-)  So I could bring the craze and passion that every sense was loaded with from Spain back to you.  Some say
the Spanish word flamenco could have been a derivative of the Spanish word flama, meaning "fire" or "flame".  I would not argue with that.

Flamenco, it's (fiery) love at first sight. :-)

Chasing Bubbles with All Your Life - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

I've written about how, in the Amazons, children, and adults, take (having fun in) life seriously.  Kids in "modern-day societies"?  Not so sure.  Letting themselves glued to iPads is not living life, IMHO.  Well, one visit to the Plaza Espana in Sevilla, Spain on one fine afternoon had me impressed.  I mean, look at these chicos and chicas, they weren't just chasing bubbles with their fast-moving legs.  They were giving their whole lives.

This image is from the "Bubble Fun" series that was submitted to the "People : Other_P" category of the 2017 International Photography Award contest.  I'm honored to have been "honorably mentioned".  It's the first time that I participated and I think I may continue chasing my bubbles. :-)
