Hello friends and colleagues, walking through the narrow and steep streets of the town of PAMPANEIRA the surprise is guaranteed, just around any corner you can come up with a beautiful corner or a craft store, as in the example I present, an interesting street with handicraft exposed in the facades, hope you like. Then a few letters on the villa.
Pampaneira is a Spanish municipality belonging to the province of Granada. It is located in Poqueira ravine in the central-western part of the Granada Alpujarra, about 66 km from the provincial capital. It borders the municipalities of Bubión Capileira, La Taha, Orgiva, Carataunas and Soportújar. Much of the municipality belongs to the Sierra Nevada National Park and Historic Ensemble Poqueira Gorge. When the Kingdom of Granada surrendered to the Catholic Monarchs, many residents took refuge in the Alpujarras and continued for almost eighty years with their customs, religion and language. They were the Moors from Granada, who endured in their rugged mountains, until Don John of Austria, special envoy of King Philip II, ended with the violent war existed. The subsequent depopulation was full and had to repopulate the land alpujarreñas with Castilian, but especially Galicia and Leon, in a flock of 1487 was said to the noble that participate in the War of Granada get redemption for his crimes. It was, therefore, a pressing invitation made to the nobility and their servants to leave Galicia and will be enrolled in the campaign, and they did. That is why the names of many places in the area-Capileira, Poqueira, Ferreira, Xumpaneira and Pampaneira, for example-are reminiscent Galicia. Possesses pampaneira continental Mediterranean climate due to the altitude you are (over 1000m) and being in the foothills of Sierra Nevada (3482m). That means it has cold winters, where it is not uncommon to have snow and ice, and a little warm summers, with extreme maximum above 35 degrees but below 40 degrees. Temperatures are softened by the presence of the Mediterranean Sea. Rainfall is variable and even abundant with drought period in summer and cold drop in autumn.

Hello Angel - I am very fond of handcrafted textiles so this little alleyway would tempt me to stop, look, feel and spend! The colourful creations look both tempting and attractive displayed against the simple white walls. Brilliant light but well managed, the lady busy with the craft work has just managed to find a shady spot to sit in! Warm regards rosemary

These narrow streets in the town and cities are such great photo opps aren't they.
Its not too often though that we get to see a person sitting along the walls edges, and I enjoy seeing all the items on the wall.

Excellent photo from Granada! When I see so big handicraft things I think about my suitcase and a luggage limit in jet ;) I promise I will visit Andalucia in my next trip to Spain.
Bets wishes from Russia!
holmertz (39427) 2013-08-22 11:43
This is a well composed photo. The colourful textiles are nicely lining the walls and the lady is well placed near the corner. The not so easy light has been beautifully handled. The view of the narrow street is interesting and attractive.
dta (64874) 2013-08-22 13:11
Hola Angel ,
C'est une très jolie et pittoresque scène de rue . Très bien exposé malgré des conditions difficiles .
krzychu30 (15440) 2013-08-22 13:48
lovely and very picturesque small alley.
The life seems to go very calm and tranquil there.You were able to convey this unique mood perfectly here(also this older woman helps you in that).
Other aspect you coped perfectly is the light-strong,but you utilized it very well.And the last thing-colors-they´re really delightful!
Waylim (25182) 2013-08-22 18:51
This is a very nice iamge, the POV put us in the middle of the narrow street with you and lead us all the way into the bend of hte stret. I like all the colorful handy crafts in display that spice up the alley way. Excellent details and texture through out. I like it very much.

Hi Ciao dear Angel, how are you?
Great and typical image for South European atmosphere.
I like so much this kind of style. Perfect framework and composition as usual. There seem to be calm and time is stopped. Clothes hung by the wall are also nice to see.
Thanks a lot for your sharing and have a good day! Takero
chrisvek (7001) 2013-08-23 4:19
Very good photo from this great place of Spain.Nice colors and very good lightning usage.So interesting details and colors.Very good POV and framework.
Have a nice day
Noel_Byrne (22691) 2013-08-23 8:38
Beautiful depth to your shot, and a great way to present the sale of these handicrafts! Lovely light falling across the scene and a rich array of colors too. Th detail in the shadow in the foreground makes a nice invitation into the scene. Cool!
Royaldevon (28337) 2013-08-23 10:12
Not only is this a very well composed photograph, with fine guide lines, a strongly positioned focal figure and a great dof, it, also, tells us much about the community, their skills and trading premises. It informs us about the weather, too, when goods are displayed outside.
My warm regards,

Una tipica captura del sur de España asolada por el sol
Muy buena escena de la vida diaria dada por la mujer que parece estar tejiendo
Buena captura con buen POV, ya que muestras ambos lados del callejon
Buen marco de acuerdo alos colores de los textiles , alfombras creo que son
Bravo por la captura
Buen fin de semana
eldancer1 (26706) 2013-08-24 9:29
It doesn't look like there are a lot of buyers but I do hope people will come, those handicrafts look beautiful and nicely done. I like your pov with good details. Well done, tfs.
Cricri (104293) 2013-08-25 8:47
J'aime me balader dans ces petites ruelles garnies de tissus, de tapis, fait main, la dame dans l'ombre concentrée sur son travail, très belle lumière et présentation
gildasjan (41358) 2013-08-25 11:53
La lumière éclaire bien cette petite ruelle avec ici un rendu très agréable des couleurs.
elenimavrandoni (14241) 2013-08-25 14:56

una bellissima foto, molto ben inquadrata e particolare per l'atmosfera che ben rappresenta il silenzio e la quiete di questo paesino dell'Andalusia.
Molto efficace la presenza umana, tanto più che apppare intenta nella sua attività giornaliera ed affiancata da bei tappeti esposti con i loro colori assai vivaci.
Una composizione molto efficace che ha valorizzato al massimo la bellezza e la poesia dell'ambiente.
Ciao e buona giornata
Fis2 (83878) 2013-08-26 5:31
A very nice alley.

I like colors and light.
Greetings from Southern Greater Poland.
Have a nice afternoon
ikeharel (55200) 2013-08-27 1:03
Good view up the alley, with colorful display of the fabrics-goods on sides.
The lady working quietly under shaded corner, and concetrated at her doing's, is a fine addition to the image. POV well chosen.
adramad (36869) 2013-08-27 15:03
Que calle tan bonita has captado en Pampaneira y con una luz fabulosa, que lo ilumina todo, precioso el colorido y encanto que aportan las alfombras, la señora pone el toque de vitalidad a la imagen.
Bien realizado. Me encanta.
Ten una buena noche.
Saludos muy cordiales.
P/D. Aqui ahora estamos muy bien con la temperatura, ahora mientras te escribo las doce de la noche en la terraza, me he tenido que abrigar pues tenia un poco de fresco de mas...
jemaflor (82888) 2013-08-28 10:24
Une vue bien composée avec une bonne présence humaine, des teintes bien rendues comme ces différences de luminosité et également bon effet de profondeur avec la perspective de la rue.
Miguel82 (22307) 2013-08-31 10:19
Holà, a charming narrow village street of Andalucia, that lady proposes handicrafts products to the visitors of that place, vivid colors, good light and pov
Your picture gives me also an idea of the architecture in that place, Have a good saturday evening Angel
emka (76255) 2013-08-31 10:49
Nice narrow street. I like the atmosphere of the lazy hot day. How nice is then to stroll around in the shade. And how good for photographers and passers by that the cars are not allowed there.
mirosu (13155) 2013-09-02 20:01
You are lucky living in Andalucía, one of the most photogenes areas in Europe.
I like very much how balanced and elegant this composition looks as you have employed the elements that define the scenery, the colours and the perspectives in an excellent way. We get a great idea of this nice place and of its beautiful surroundings (including also this small craft store), depth and clarity are superb. Apart from that, even beyond the physical description, the picture is a delight to look at for its beautiful light and bright contrasting colours. Well done. Greetings, Miro
adores (35614) 2013-09-05 19:05
Pampaneira não é uma cidade muito conhecida. Gosto da composição, com a artesã a trabalhar em primeiro plano e o artesanato exposto ao longo da rua. Boas cores também!
ourania (29309) 2013-09-08 10:11
this is a very well composed picture that presents us an interesting and delightful view of a narrow alley of Pampaneira. You've used framing and perspective very effectively so we get a good idea of the architectural environment and of the colourful handicrafts thar are on dislay along the alley. Depth and clarity are superb and the rendering of textures is great. You've managed the lighting very skillfully obtaining very natural and pleasant colours and shadows. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,
mjw364 (7270) 2013-09-18 1:43
A nicely composed street scene with great lines and colours. The person positioned on the left provides a point of interest in the foreground. Well composed.
Have a great week!
