Cordoba is home to several outstanding attractions including the Mezquita, a one time mosque that is now a cathedral, and what are probably the most beautiful stables in the world.

Great shot of the Mezquita, the b/w really does it justice… one of my favorite places…

With so many people walking around it was difficult. The place is known for the columns, so that is what I published.

The entire set is made stronger by your choice of monochrome.

Thank you. The river was brown, and nothing looked right in color on some of them. Clouds pop in B&W.

Really very impressive set. Beautiful.

You know, I have been looking and drooling over your pictures for a few months now, and I have to say this: I’ve travelled to many of the destinations depicted in your photographs and oddly enough, when I look at my own travel albums I cannot find but a scarce number of pictures … I am the type to entirely immerse myself in the moment and memorize that moment, rather than take time to create a perfect picture of it for show and tell later (it’s just not my profession, so I abstain from doing it). Also, it is the first time I run into a photographer’s work and find myself in that photographer’s photographs: they perfectly depict my memories of those places, so I secretly use them to show my friends where I’ve been and cite things that occurred there haha. Fabulous pictures… 🙂 Best wishes, NaNa

There is no rule that says you have to take pictures or especially take good pictures. Most people hare happy with their mobile phone cameras these days.
I have several different audiences. From the pool of WordPress bloggers they seem to be mostly drawn by the travel photography.

Love the stories waiting to be told behind the human moments you capture. Bravo.

Great photos, Ron.
Here’s ‘Cordoba’ by Spanish composer Isaac Albeniz, played by John Williams on guitar: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=cordoba+isaac+albeniz&sm=1
Might go well with the photos.

Thank you Chris.

Thanks again for the photos.

Thank you for the political commentary, and it isn’t pretty these days.
November 25, 2013 at 9:38 am
No problem. It ain’t pretty.
I appreciate you stopping by.

When I was a student I used to be a travel courier in Spain so these pictures brought back happy memories. I love the black and white images but Spanish light is usually so good can I ask why you chose black and white for these pictures alone?

There is no logical answer to your question, just impulse. What I can say is B&W brings out the checkerboard plaza in a way that color can’t.

I went to the beach at Cordoba and had a ball!! Incredible weekend.
November 26, 2013 at 10:05 am
I didn’t know there was a beach in Cordoba.
