One Day in Malaga, Spain PART THREE

For this third part in my Malaga series, I’m taking you on a tour of the local produce market. When I heard that there was a giant market right in the heart of town, I had to find it… photos at places like this are awesome. And, when you think about it, you can’t get much more local than where folks buy their groceries, right?

Doesn’t all that cheese look so good!?!? I want to have a whole wine store to go with it!

The smell while walking past the booths filled with olives was indescribable.

 

 

IMG_6933Fruits and vegetables never cease to amaze me with their color.

 

 

IMG_6932And the variety that was available was just stunning.

 

 

IMG_6930Miguel really knows how to filet fish, apparently.

 

 

IMG_6929What kind of fish are these? Can somebody help me?

 

 

Finally… as I was entering the market…

IMG_6926Now, is this a man? Or a really unfortunate-looking woman? Keep in mind that this photo was taken on Valentine’s Day. And ‘she’ was a bride, as far as I could tell from the photo. But Crocs? What kind of a bride, male or female, would wear Crocs down the aisle?!?!

Have a good one, everybody!

One Day in Malaga, Spain PART TWO

Taking photos while traveling can be difficult. You either end up with too many and never take the time to sort through them… or you can’t remember what it was that you even took a picture of.

I like having a theme for my photos. Graffiti. People. Statues. Doorways. Flowers. Stones. All of these have been my theme for various days spent in various cities.

Here are some examples from Malaga, Spain… I mixed it up a little so you can see what I mean.

IMG_6765

Flowers are one of the best themes I’ve found. Especially if the shot is strategically placed, you can have the flowers and a little hint/reminder of where the photo was taken.

 

 

 

IMG_6767

Interesting stone patterns make for great pictures. A shot like this really breaks up a book of your photos and makes people think, “now, I wonder where this was?”

 

 

 

IMG_6772

The same goes for animals. I can’t tell you how many dogs I’ve taken photos of in my travels. And I’ll always remember that this cat was with his owner, who was selling nuts.

 

 

 

IMG_6799

Another example of stone patterns, this time in a wall.

 

 

 

IMG_6882

Take plenty of photos of the people that you’re traveling with! And don’t ever be afraid to have them pose!

 

 

 

IMG_6885

Caution: boobs in the above photo. Well, I guess that was too late.

 

 

 

IMG_6886

Graffiti is one of my favorite themes. Some may see ugly. I see stories.

 

 

 

IMG_6899

People and animals mixed nicely in this shot. The owner saw me taking a photo of his dog and then he picked up the dog and whispered, “I love you.” And then the dog did his little trick, leaning into his dad for a hug.

 

 

 

IMG_6902

Statues were my favorite thing to take photos of in Europe. Some were breathtakingly beautiful. Others were creepy as can be.

 

 

 

IMG_6908

And then some were so dramatic.

 

 

 

IMG_6964

But I always come back to people. People make any photograph better. This is the waiter at our lunch restaurant in Malaga.

 

Come back for more Malaga photos in the coming days.
