Malaga murals

In Malaga, we stayed in a hotel near the bus and train stations —

And, as in many other cities, the area was a lot more run down


Than in the centre of the city.


I thought it had a lot of character

With its urban decay and murals –


Some of them posed existential questions,


While others just wanted

To give peace a chance.

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.
