Walking on the streets of Cordoba and looking for patios during Patios Festival. i saw this strange looking couple. I follow them and tried to make some shots, but they went very quickly. They came to one patio and it seemed they knew the owner, met him and they didn't join the queue. I hope that they would stay in patio for a longer time, but after a few minutes they quicklyu went away. I had no idea who they could be. Charo Parras (on FB) wrote he was bandolero. Has he escaped from the Bandolero's Museum in Ronda?? And what about her? It was difficult to make better shot, but |I hope you will find it interesting.

Yesterday and before yesterday I met Gert in Warsaw. I was delighted to see him after six years of virtual friendship. Unfortunately, the weather was bad, with cloudy sky and rain, so not good for photos and sightseeing. We mainly chatted and not visited places I planned to show him.
Gert in Warsaw, in Praga district.

the colourful couple make an attractive shot in what I take to be their traditional costumes.
You have caught them in a good position between the textured blue doors.
Warm regards Les.

Man in red and woman in black, the costumes are very interesting looking. The sunny southern Spain has a lot of fun indeed.

Since we are not really supposed to critique workshop photos, I won't :-).
These two people are a lot more colourful than the old, grey couple seen walking in Praga last Saturday. The Cordoba sun was much better too. I guess these people did not always dress this way, but it was good for you to meet them, even just briefly.

nonostante lo scatto veloce, hai ottenuto un ottimo risultato, soprattutto grazie alla curiosità che trasmette questa coppia.
Non capisco cosa suoni la signora dell'orchestra? Di che strumento si tratta????

Osobliwa para, ale chyba nasze stroje ludowe też są dla innych egzotyczne, ciekawe, poznawcze zdjęcie-dokument, bardzo ładnie

interesting costumes indeed and you managed to get a good shot despite this couple being on the move. Attractive colours and I like the bg details. Not sure what happened with the black in the costumes, but it seems to be suffering from over sharpening perhaps? You have managed the bright sun very well.
I wanted to visit Cordoba while I was in Spain recently but only managed a short trip to Seville. Maybe next time.
I like the workshops and I am pleased to see a photo of Gert.

Light and colors well rendered, cahrming photo.

An interesting picture with this colourful couple. Also quite enjoyable workshop pictures!

Great WS pictures, I first thought the close up of the man might have been Gert. :) So glad you finally had the opportunity to meet after all these years. I really like what you've taken and composed with this shot, it's full of color, tradition and details that are purely harmonious to the eyes. There's also a good deal of varying textures, something that always catches my attention. A well captured, spontaneous moment. Nicely done! Enjoy the new day...and watch at least a little bit of the World Cup, would ya'? ;)

your notes are useful

Hello dear Malgo,
Despite their rapid pace, you captured the couple perfectly. They could not outpace the speed of light, nor your lighting-quick reflexes with the shutter button. I'm sorry you are not a soccer/football fan, at a time when the rest of the world, including my son and I, are addicted to one screen device or another.
I'm glad you met Gert, a "virtual friend," and indeed a mutual virtual friend of many years. Warm regards.
