I really thought this place was heaven on earth and stayed one day more than planned.  Watching people walking along the beach was the start of each day.

The jet lag is almost gone and I am looking forward to some time at home.  There is a big art show in Houston this week, so here are some artsy photos.  I can’t remember what “Red Box” was in case anyone wants to know.

Of the three major stops on this trip, Bilbao had the most opportunities for urban and street photograph, my favorite genre.  San Sebastian was the most beautiful and had the best night life.  Pamplona had the best food.

How does one photograph one of the most famous buildings in the world in a way says more about yourself as a photographer than the building itself?  Those who teach photography call the issue triteness.  Let me know how I did. I did get lucky because they turned on the fog machine while I was there.

The Cage

My room in a 5 star hotel overlooking a street where the bulls run was 150 Euros per night.  When the bulls are running it is 1,200 Euros.  Hemingway’s room was available that day for 500 Euros, 5,000 when the bulls run.  Many bars in the area claim Hemingway drank there, but it is likely he drank in all of them.

Photos from a lovely beach resort with a great night life, and not the usual, I hope.

My journey through the Basque country continues.  I exist on tapas and wine.  The weather has been perfect save for a rain storm last night.  The leaning houses were near a small river.  They remind me of Kandinsky’s early work.
