A view of the river, Triana bridge, and the walkway on the other side. I bet you can't guess where it's taken from.
Whose great idea was this Wordless Wednesday? I’d like to shake him/her by the hand.
Why? Because it gives me the opportunity to do a post which is all pictures.
So this week, the last of October’s Post A Day madness, I bring you some unusual images of Seville.
A particpant in the annual marathon. Some Semana Santa pasos feature Roman legionaries. I love the way he's fully armed and ready for battle.
A replica (thanks to Azahar for putting me straight) of the statue - La Giraldilla - which sits on top of the Giralda, the former minaret which is Seville's most famous landmark. It is used when the original is brought back down to earth periodically for a clean-up. A rare chance to get a look at a Sevillana icon. Note her slinky, clingy dress and on-trend gladiator sandals.
The foot of a costalero poking out from under a paso. Their slow, carefully orchestrated movements as they carry statues of holy figures on these ornately decorated platforms are one of the integral features of Seville's Semana Santa. It must be a curiously intimate experience, being in a dark, crowded space with all those other men. But all we can see of them is this shoe.
