Sevilla Sunday

Last Sunday (it rained today); a stroll from Arjona, down the riverbank and into town…

Man with a nice back. Looking over the Guadalquivir to Triana.

Torre del Oro (Tower of Gold), originally a Moorish guard post, used by the Spanish to store gold plundered from the Americas. A classic Seville landmark.

There are always rowers and kayakers going up and down the Guadalquivir. They're incredibly picturesque, especially at sunset.

There are always rowers and kayakers going up and down the Guadalquivir. They’re incredibly picturesque, especially at sunset – the way the ripples sweep out across the water. This isn’t a great shot – out of focus and I clicked the shutter a little too late. But I think the rowers will offer up many more opportunities…

Late afternoon silhouettes on the Puente de San Telmo, one of multiple bridges that now cross the Guadalquivir.

This one is a cheeky crop, but I wanted to be able to see the old lady's face better. I like the light and the colours in the scene, on the last day of Christmas.

Luminoso, on Calle Alfonso XII. Seville has quite a lot of these ridiculously ostentacious furnishings shops, in which I never see any customers.
