Snapshots from Malaga

I spent a hot Sunday morning wandering around Malaga.

First stop – the main plaza in the old town

Where there was a wonderful photo exhibition by Salgado.

Then a quick stop at Cafe Central with its famous mosaic.

The empty glass of coffee sums up how I feel (horror vacui)!

My eye was drawn to the symmetry of the cloth

Protecting the main shopping street and old buildings from the sun.

Malaga Cathedral attracts a lot of visitors

With its fine architecture.

I was more fascinated by the neglected rear of the cathedral,

Where hundreds of cobwebs caught bird feathers

From the pigeons who live there.

  11. Oh no an empty coffee cup! The canopy over the street is fascinating…. beautiful architecture but even more interesting is the feather covered ceiling (mutually created by pigeons and spiders)…glad you had time to get away from the beautiful beach for a brief time anyway …thanks for sharing it all and, as always, for bringing us Our World.

    Outstanding photographs, Fiona! They’re simply stunning!

    And I can certainly see why your eye was drawn to the symmetry of the cloth because it’s beautifully mesmerizing! In fact, that’s my favorite image in this collection.

    I also love the final one of the cobwebs caught bird feathers because I feel the same way. There is a building (City Hall) which is not far from where I live and the architecture looks similar to the cathedral. There have been times when I’ve spotted those same type cobwebs caught bird feathers. They look so cool!

    Thanks so much for sharing, my friend. Looking forward to seeing more 🙂

    I have visited Malaga once, and even then for only half a day. (Couldn’t stay longer because I couldn’t take the heat.) I went to the Cathedral and to Picasso’s house but missed the cloth covering for the mall. I wish I had seen that too.
