Photographer's Note

The title should be the blue hour more than the blue lagoon.
But after think the title I saw that this title is a little homenage to Basil Poledouris, who passed away the past week and who worked also in this film.
And that blue lagoon in the photo is the baisin of the fountain of the square of Quintanilla del Coco.

Look inside the baisin: you can see a few stones, clear water and even four fishes. Over the water is possible see the reflection of one of the main buildings of the world. Sorry, one of the main buildings of Quintanilla del Coco.
That building is the town hall.
In this place the kids went many years to the school. All together. Their age not was a problem.
But now only is the place where some activities of the town hall take place and also there you would see the bar of the village (look the views through the bar, I & II). And also there comes the doctor once time at the week.
And, finally, in the building are made a few activities of differents associations of the villages (some of them for the old people, some of them for the summer,...).

Also I want dedicate this photo to Nikki, who two days ago posted a photo called “Cherry up Coco”.
Her first post of Quintanilla del Coco was a photo where you could see a view of one of the buildings that you can see in this photo.
In a few days you could see another photo of the square (another blue hour) where is more easy understand how is this place.

Only let me add the next one: the fountain was done in the 1923 or 1924 year and in the 1998 year suffered an important reform. But after this reform there has been a few more.
When I was leaving Quintanilla del Coco to Barcelona began the last reform where the stone around the fountain and the baisin were cleaned.
And also... something about the town council.
The building, the city hall, was done in the 19th century, but the countil town was born in the 18th century.
The Spanish king Charles IV was who gave the order of make a new order to this kind of villages. The town councils are not from this period, but this kind of council towns in this kind of villages yes.

I hope you like it and... enjoy.
