Recently been on foto-tour in the beautifull village of Vejer de la Frontera I took a rest in a small street. Having a tea and some small snack I recon the oposite wall presenting quriky shadows of those passing by. The bright light, the white wall with the black handrail (indicating the walking direction) and the shadows gave a bizarre contrast and transforming the humans in grotesque creatures.

Recently we'd been in the Jerez-Zoo one of the oldest in Spain. In the beginning the area was a freshwater depot build 1889 for the city. Step-by-step various plants had been planted in this area. Out of this a botanical garden developed (Jardines de tempul), since 1953 also including the zoo which is now called "Zoobotanico Jerez". Roughly 200 species with more than 1000 individual animals are visible.

Beeing in a zoo it is always difficult for me as quite often animals are kept in too small areas far away from their original habitat e.g. eagles in small cages not able to circle in the sky. Is it worth to keep them there us running around these "showcases"? Of cause I see also the educational aspect of it and it is a good place to take photos I am normaly not able to take.

Airports are designed to handle people - lots of people. If you are at an airport you'll never be alone, you are never the first in a line and waiting seems to be an essential task. Lots of languages can be heard and various other sounds are in the air. It is a busy place, constructed to bring the world from A to B.

Some weeks ago I need to pick up someone flying in I think with the last incomming flight. I was really surprised as the big halls had been nearly deserted, just a handfull of people. And it was as well nearly silent. An unusual feeling, somehow feeling lost after a kind of apocalypse might happened.

Take a look and get the feeling!

Normally the Costa De La Luz is linked to blue sky, sun, long beaches, and happy holidays. But this could change especially during winter times.

Recently the coastline saw some more than heavy winds, rough water and in several areas big parts of the beaches just disappear. A day later I took the chance to have a look at the shoreline taking some photos. Some of those are shown below, some more can be found in my gallery.
