Photographer's Note

Do you see the same? More than 50 000 points! I do not care much about the points, but it is nice to see:). It is quite incredible. wWithout idea about photography, with a small camera, three tripods but all safely at home, etc. What chances I have? Thank you all very much for your smiles, big effort to teach me something although I am rather immune for it. I can't tell if I learned something, you can judge. But one thing is sure - since I joined TE I look at the world differently and see many thing I wouldn't have noticed earlier.

These are the gardens of Aranjuez. Imagine you walk slowly there, enjoying pleasant weather, beautiful gardens with many perspectives, and hear this Concierto.

The Concierto de Aranjuez is a composition for classical guitar and orchestra by the Spanish composer Joaquín Rodrigo.
The Concierto de Aranjuez was inspired by the gardens at Palacio Real de Aranjuez, the spring resort palace and gardens built by Philip II in the last half of the 16th century and rebuilt in the middle of the 18th century by Ferdinand VI. The work attempts to transport the listener to another place and time through the evocation of the sounds of nature.
Rodrigo and his wife Victoria stayed silent for many years about the inspiration for the second movement, and thus the popular belief grew that it was inspired by the bombing of Guernica in 1937. In her autobiography, Victoria eventually declared that it was both an evocation of the happy days of their honeymoon and a response to Rodrigo's devastation at the miscarriage of their first pregnancy. It was composed in 1939 in Paris.
On 30 December 1991, Rodrigo was raised to the Spanish nobility by King Juan Carlos I with the title of Marqués de los Jardines de Aranjuez.

In WS different view.
Enjoy happy weekend my friends.
