Girona Spain

Girona Spain

Part of the magic of Girona Spain is how the colours change when the weather turns sour or the sun sets. Its pastels change hue with less impact and become even more subtle. It may feel odd that such a colourful city should photograph well in black and white yet it does. Cobble streets adds texture and geometry. A lovely city in the baking sun, refreshing rain, mid-day or sunset. Although it really comes alive with noise and bustle at dusk.

Besalú

The medieval town of Besalú sits north of Girona. You approach over a grand romanesque bridge with huge doorways over the river Fluvia. It is a 12th century fortress with a strong jewish history. Side streets are very small and bend sharply unfriendly to motor vehicles and great to stroll through.
