Fashion forward at the fort. Sevilla's Alcázar, an architectural wonder built in the 1300's, serves as a backdrop for red shoes.

Feria de Abril, Sevilla

Feria began as a cattle auction. Now it's a combination of carnival and Kentucky Derby.

It was one of the craziest and most fun scenes I saw in Spain.

It was one crazy scene. There was so much going on I didn’t know where to point my camera. 

We left at dark. But in true Spanish style the part goes on through the night and into the morning.

Ida

If you like black and white photography and compelling stories, Ida is a movie you must see. The way the camera lingers I felt like I was looking at still photographs in a gallery. Plenty of time to contemplate and appreciate the images. Check it out!
