Photo101 weekend recap

This shot reminds me of both the solitude and the street themes, one of the only quiet streets in Valencia last Saturday night.

Calle Sueca, Russafa

Whereas this shot of Calle Sueca in Ruzafa shows the extravagance of Fallas. I tried to focus on the beautiful display while going home through the crowds. Unfortunately I couldn’t get a properly angled shot.
I’m sure this week’s assignments will be quite Fallas centred too.
Until next time
Party on Wayne

The build-up to Fallas

The citywide party
For workers no joke
Its hard to think clearly for noise and for smoke.

Some streets are deserted while
Others are crammed
With revels and banter
The screams of the damned.

The darkness is hidden
Obscured from our sight
This city of sunshine
Terrified of the night

The Christian martyrs who
Burned in the fire
Are now paid lip service
In the form of satire

Yet on spite of these problems
An outsider sees,
The festival sentiment
Is the wood, not the trees.
