Here's my photo essay of the bullfight I attended while on vacation in the south of Spain. Text (edited) by Wikipedia; all photos are my own.
Spanish-style bullfighting is called a corrida de toros (literally a “running of bulls”), tauromaquia or fiesta brava and is practiced in Spain, Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, Peru, as well as in Southern France. In traditional corrida, three toreros, also called matadores or, in French, toréadors, each fight two bulls that are at least four years old and weigh up to about 600 kg or 1,300 lb (with a minimum weight limit of 460 kg or 1,010...

I am intrigued with the idea of setting up a "neighborhood network" in which people actually share their resources, material goods, time and expertise to make their MICRO worlds a better place.

Any thoughts on this?

A blast from the past.  This is me, circa 1989, taken down by the Ghirardelli Square waterfront in San Francisco.  I had just returned from a three month reporting tour covering the Afghan war for the San Francisco Chronicle.

From mines to manufacturers, clearing the supply chain of minerals used to fund armed conflict is an arduous process.

Great shot here from photographer Alex Bazeos.
 
Aspropyrgos photowalk, Greece

Yesterday it was a special day for me, as I did the first joined photoshooting with my good G+ friends +Aleka Iakovidou +helen sotiriadis and +Julia Anna Gospodarou (that's just alphabetical order girls ;-)

I drove them as I had promised to my fave decaying jetty in Aspropyrgos, Greece and though we didn't stay for long we sure had a blast!

I set the tripod, filters, blah, blah... and started shooting the sunset and the rolling clouds, but in the meantime I was more interested in shooting the girls @ work with my other camera, so I got carried away with the girls (who wouldn't...) and ended with just a couple of keepers from the jetty, all shot from the same spot.

Helen has already posted a great shot from yesterday here:

I'll post links to the other girl's photos when they'll post them. I'm sure they have some stunners too, as I saw them in their back screens. I'm waiting...

Needless to mention that the most fun we had, was taking photos of each other, so (as Arnie says) "I'll be back..."

In the meantime here's one of my artsy-fartsy ones...
