Details


Little narcissus in a garden at the Bahia Palace. It's very unusual to see bulbs here where it's mostly palm trees and hibiscus - a glimpse of spring in colder climes.



Mint tea on the roof - sweet and reviving.



A doorstep in the Bahia palace which is a positive ode to the delights of 'shabby-chic' - there's something a bit dead about perfect things...........



Shadows from a doorway.......our daughter said once that photographs aren't about things but about light........

More beautiful glimpses! That last one with the shadows is amazing. And I so love the tiles in the photo of the door.

Your daughter is certainly right looking at this picture.

I love what your daughter said.... Very perceptive of her.

And I love little close-up photos. Details, as you call them.

There are places for showing a larger vista, like your photos of the market square {I hope I have the correct words...}. But more and more, I am loving photos of details.
