Jerry and I get around. In 2011, we moved from the USA to Spain. We now live near Málaga. Jerry y yo nos movemos. En 2011, nos mudamos de EEUU a España. Ahora vivimos cerca de Málaga.
Macro Matt, Music, and Miscellany
Our nephew Matt discovered a new obsession while he was wandering the streets of Sevilla. The macro lens. Lindy (our niece-in-law) is an exceptional photographer and she long ago perfected her close-up skills. She has even enlarged some of her images onto canvas, creating some truly incredible “abstract” art. After all this time, the Macro bug finally hooked Matt. The Dynamic Duo from Dakota (South) roamed the streets, zooming in on birds, leaves, flowers, bricks, shadows.
ZOOMING IN ON MACRO MATT AS HE ZOOMS ON A HIBISCUS.
I’m more the storyteller type of photographer, so I only got hooked on the macro lens temporarily. My favorite subjects to zoom in on, however, were Matt and Lindy.
LINDY GOT SOME FASCINATING VIEWS OF BRICKS. MATT DECIDED TO TRY IT.
I wish our roving photographers could have stayed all winter (or longer). I drowned my sorrows (in two tiny beers) this afternoon with Albert and Lola. We haven’t gotten together since before the holidays and spending a few hours in their wonderful company definitely helped. Street musicians outside the main post office are also a great distraction.
AN AMAZING PARTNERSHIP.
SELECTING A PAINTING OUTSIDE THE MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS. (LINDY: IF IT DOESN’T FIT IN THE SUITCASE, I’LL CARRY IT FOR THE REST OF OUR TRIP.)
A GROUP OF WILD PARROTS IN MARIA LUISA PARK.
THEY’RE ALL OVER TOWN, BUT NEVER FOR A CLOSE-UP.
NO STORY. JUST A CLOSE-UP OF A HIBISCUS.
NO TRIP TO SEVILLA WOULD BE COMPLETE WITHOUT CHURROS Y CHOCOLATE (FROM VALOR).
GRAFFITI ON A WALL ALONG THE RIVER IN TRIANA.
And another day goes by with no progress on the leak and assorted problems at home. I did however speak with the insurance rep. He promised to see to it personally tomorrow. Ha! I followed up this afternoon with a very kindly yet clearly worded ultimatum email to “F”. We’ll get there… Sooner or later. In the meantime, I’ll keep on stopping to enjoy the music.
From Brooklyn, New York; to North Massapequa; back to Brooklyn; Brockport, New York; back to Brooklyn... To Boston, Massachusetts, where I met Jerry... To Marina del Rey, California; Washington, DC; New Haven and Guilford, Connecticut; San Diego, San Francisco, Palm Springs, and Santa Barbara, California; Las Vegas, Nevada; Irvine, California; Sevilla, Spain. And Fuengirola, Málaga..
