 GIBRALTAR

PHOTOS COME AND GO IN A HEARTBEAT
... DON'T GET CAUGHT NAPPING!
 

IS GIBRALTAR JUST A FAMOUS ROCK? OR ARE OTHER THINGS HAPPENING, TOO?


GIBRALTAR: LIKE YOU, I SEE ICONIC SITES FROM AROUND THE WORLD ON THE INTERNET, CALENDARS, ETC. DAY IN AND DAY OUT. YOU KNOW, THE EIFFEL TOWER IN PARIS, CHRIST THE REDEEMER HIGH ABOVE RIO DE JANIERO. BUT I'M ALWAYS LEFT WONDERING WHAT IS IT LIKE TO LIVE THERE, TO HAVE THESE MAGICAL VIEWS PART OF THE "DAILINESS OF LIFE"... THE ROCK OF GIBRALTAR BLEW ME AWAY, NOT BECAUSE OF THE "ROCK", WHICH WAS SPECTACULAR, BUT BECAUSE OF THE SURROUNDINGS, THE "DAILINESS OF LIFE" FOR THE BRITS AND SPANISH WHO LIVE IN IT'S SHADOW...

THIS PHOTO WAS SNAPPED... IN SPAIN. IT WASN'T EVEN A FORMAL PARK, JUST A STRETCH OF THE COASTLINE...ABANDONED TO NATURE. OH, I NEVER IMAGINED THAT. ADJACENT WAS A SKATEBOARD PARK WHERE SPANISH KIDS WERE WHIZZING AROUND ON ROLLER SKATES...AND SKATEBOADS. THEIR PARENTS, OF COURSE, BEAMING APPROVAL!

ON THE "ROCK" I GOT UP CLOSE TO BARBARY APES (WHERE DID THEY COME FROM?). THEY WERE PLAYING WITH THEIR YOUNG AND "HUNTER-GATHERING AND BEING INTOLERANT OF TOURIST ATTENTION - IN OTHER WORDS "WILD". I NEVER IMAGINED THAT, EITHER. AND SO IT GOES. I TEND TO LOOK AT PHOTOS AND WONDER, "WHAT DON'T I SEE". YOU SHOULD, TOO. AND THEN SEE TO IT THAT YOUR PHOTOS TELL THE WHOLE TRUTH, NOT JUST THE CONVENIENT TRUTH...

BEST REGARDS,

ERIC


ALWAYS KEEP YOUR CAMERA READY, INCLUDING NECESSARY ADJUSTMENTS TO YOUR CAMERA SETTINGS... GREAT SHOTS ARE OFTEN GONE IN A HEARTBEAT!
