Today I had wonderful long day. I got up early in the morning to catch the bus to Cordoba. I do not know why they prepare breakfast in hostels so late. Again I went without it, normal :). In Cordoba first funny thing, I went the wrong way to my hostel and near Mezquita I met my good friends from Warsaw! I left my luggage and went sightseeing. First I went to Mezquita. It can't be comparedto anything in the world. Later I visit Alcazar and gardens. After that I went to see patios.
The Festival of Los Patios is held in Córdoba (Spain) halfway through May when spring is at its best. The Festival consists of a contest in which participants open their patios (courtyards) to others for free in order to be explored within the set opening hours. During the period of the festival, the most symbolic neighbourhoods in the old town of the city open up their hidden treasures for visitors to have a look around, at a time when blooming flowers turn the patios into beautiful domestic gardens.
The flowers in patios are incredible, the patios are little paradise. I visited about twenty of them and I didn't feel my feet:). But near my hostel was free flamenco show, so I went there and had gazpacho :). The show was very good,
After the show I went for some night shots on the Roman bridge. Uff, it is now 1 a.m.
Good night :)

Another adventurous day:-) This is a most attractive patio garden with a lovely range of blooms. The couple enliven the scene and are well placed in the frame. Top class technical presentation. Have an enjoyable weekend in sunny Spain.

if this man ever releases an album, this would be such a perfect cover. A fascinating array of color and the man and woman are prefect in the scene. Even their body language and how they are sitting is just perfect. Really lovely scene.
I also usually miss out on breakfast when staying away over night :)
have a great weekend

Je pense que l'on peu situer celle photo aussitôt qu'on la voit. Très typique des superbes patios de Cordoba, avec toutes ces fleurs partout. Le couple est vraiment bien placé dans ce décor de cinéma.

This is a most attractive patio garden with a lovely range of blooms.
Music softens manners is the proverb.
I like the nice soft colours also the sharpness and clarity.
Excellent composition and good presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Beautiful Patio, full of flowers, a man playing guitar and the girl clapping the rhythm to the song, a scene that sums up Andalucia and Cordoba in a nutshell. Strolling trough the old jewish quarters, enjoying a Tapas or two, a visit to the incomparatible Mezquita and the beautiful gardens at the Alcazar, Cordoba is well worth a visit indeed.
have a great weekend

Co za romantyczny zakątek, zieleń koi wzrok, kwiaty roztaczają wonie, a dźwięki klasycznej gitary zachęcają do spoczęcia, sama poezja :))))

Attractive patio scene enhanced by flamenco guitar, the flowers crowd every inch combined with art hardscape.
I personally can skip breakfast as long as there is plenty of coffee.
Thanks for sharing,

di sicuro non hai il tempo di annoiarti, sei come una trottola, continui a girare senza interruzione.
I risultati si vedono bene dalle foto che ci mostri, tutte belle e interessanti e, ovviamente, ricche di fiori.

Lovely image. Very well composed. I would like to be there near these beautiful flowers and singers.

This is a terrific follow-up on your previous picture. Maybe not as lively in dance, but just as characteristic and appealing in beauty and mood. Outstanding collection of colors and nature. What a beautiful little corner to sit and enjoy each others company while having some background guitar music for good measure. A truly inviting location. Glad your enjoying your time here. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

What a lovely way to view the locals gardens, patios and be entertained.
Wonderful colours from the flowers and the guitarist shirt matches well with the Geraniums.
See you had a super time.
Apologies for lack of response but have sold our house and need to find another to purchase.
Having a break to Turkey Saturday week, to de-stress.
Trust you are well and have good weather.

Charming those inner yards on houses in Cordoba, Malgo. Lavish green and flowers decorating, and gave a fine ambiance to the couple playing.
Nice taken, beautiful moment.
