The unknown lady

Her gaze captivated me instantly,
her blond hair moving gently in the wind,
her discreet smile, her beauty,
everything about her was intrigued.
From that moment my life is not mine…
My life is in her eyes…

La Albufera. Valencia

La Albufera. Valencia

The Albufera is a freshwater lagoon and estuary on the Gulf of Valencia coast of the Valencian Community in eastern Spain. It is the main portion of the Parc Natural de l’Albufera (“Albufera Natural Park”), with a surface area of 21,120 hectares (52,200 acres).

The natural biodiversity of the nature reserve allows a great variety of fauna and flora to thrive and be observed year-round. While once a saltwater lagoon, dilution due to irrigation and canals draining into the estuary and the sand bars increasing in size had converted it to freshwater by the seventeenth century.

This is my contribution to this Week Photo Challenge: Details

We go back to a flower that appeared in an old post in my blog, the Red Callistemon citrinus. The details appearing in the world of nature are amazing. This flower is an example of the wonders that the nature has in store for us.

Brownie

Brownie

Brownie is the name of a long-running popular series of simple and inexpensive cameras made by Eastman Kodak.

The Brownie camera, introduced in February 1900, invented low-cost photography by introducing the concept of the snapshot to the masses. The Brownie, was a very basic cardboard box camera with a simple meniscus lens that took 2 1/4-inch square pictures on 117rollfilm. The Brownie camera was conceived and marketed for sales of Kodak roll films. Because of its’ simple controls and initial price of $1 along with the low price of Kodak roll film and processing, The Brownie camera achieved and surpassed its’ marketing goal.

The camera was named after the brownies in popular Palmer Coxcartoons. Consumers responded, and over 150,000 Brownie cameras were shipped in the first year of production. An improved model, called No. 2 Brownie came in 1901, which produced larger photos and cost $2. It was also very popular.

Brownies were extensively marketed to children, with Kodak using them to popularise photography. They were also taken to war by soldiers. As they were so ubiquitous, many iconic shots were taken on brownies.

Resting after the walk

Resting after the walk

street_photo_cmllWalking is simple, free and one of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight and become healthier.

It’s underrated as a form of exercise but walking is ideal for people of all ages and fitness levels who want to be more active.

Regular walking has been shown to reduce the risk of chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, asthma, stroke and some cancers.

Resting after walk is mandatory. Getting enough rest after exercise is essential. Do it, and as our woman in the photo, you can take off your shoes and stretch your feet and toes… you’ll feel better.

Partners. "Castellers"

Partners. “Castellers”

This is my contribution to this Week Photo Challenge: Partners

These are a group of “castellers”, that is, a group of people who build human “castles”. I think this perfectly reflects the concept of partners.

A castell (castle) is a human tower built traditionally in festivals at many locations within Catalonia. At these festivals, several colles castelleres (group of people who do these towers) often succeed in building and dismantling a tower’s structure. On November 16, 2010, castells were declared by UNESCO to be amongst the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

Castellers

Castellers

A castell is considered a success when stages of its assembling and disassembling, can be done in complete succession. The assembly is complete once all castellers have climbed into their designated places, and the enxaneta climbs into place at the top and raises one hand with four fingers erect, in a gesture said to symbolize the stripes of the Catalan flag. The enxaneta then climbs down the other side of the castell, after which the remaining levels of castellers descend in highest-to-lowest order until all have reached safety.

Aside from the people who climb to form the upper parts of the tower, others are needed to form the pinya, or bottom base of the castell, to sustain its weight. Members of the pinya (most often men) also act as a ‘safety net’ if the tower structure collapses, cushioning the fall of people from the upper levels. It is not uncommon—when not in competitions—for other colles to assist in the pinya when a small colla is attempting a specially demanding structure in terms of people needed.

Locksmith

Locksmith

Again another contribution to Norm’s Thursday doors.

I found this door in a walking night across the neighborhood of Shoreditch, London. The graffiti street art mural is for Locksmith, a Safe shop in Bethnall Green Road, Shoreditch. On the other side of Bethnall Green Road from Boxpark, just past the corner with Ebor Street.

The beautiful graffiti does not lack originality.
