Hello and thank you for calling in...

My name is Helen and I am a Photographer living in England. I started this Blog on the day that my Grandma died, three months after my Father died and several weeks before a third funeral. Initially it was a very personal way to stay connected to the people I'd lost and it helped, it really did. But writing and taking pictures everyday has taken me to places I never dreamed possible and I am now marching into Photography as a full time proffession. A big thank you to my followers, to those who take the time to comment and to new visitors, I hope we will become Blog friends too...

Frigiliana, Spain

Frigiliana in Southern Spain, within the province of Malaga is a stunning location if your looking for traditional Spanish streets to photograph,

particularly during the last four days of August when they hold the 'Festival de las Tres Culturas' when the streets are draped with colourful flags and there is a traditional market with street dancers and shows.
The town is high on a hill with a labyrinth of cobbled streets and plazas, whitewashed houses with wrought iron balconies holding masses of potted flowers.
Roof top gardens at the many small restaurants give amazing views at sunset and the church
where the wedding was held that we were a part of was attended by many local Spanish ladies, dressed all in black, flicking beautifully decorated fans. Photo opportunities around every corner!

  2. oh Gilly it was! as we were bused there specifically for the wedding I couldn't really go wandering off to take pictures. The streets you see are on the wedding march route, as you park at the bottom of the hill and walk up through the town to the church and back down again,to the cheers of the locals lining the streets. I will go back next year and spend a day there!
