My Leica M4-2,
My Konica Hexanon 35mm f2
My Leica Summicron 90mm f2
My film stock Kodak BW400CN ISO 400
But enough with the technical babble. Here's the goods!
This is the surviving mosque in Toledo, now a museum.
View of Toledo, from a street that goes down to the Puerta Bisagra (Bisagra gate).
The arches under which one walks to exit the city through the Bisagra gate. This one leads to a small courtyard in which there's a statue of Alfonso VI (I believe).
This very jovial man serves up churros and chocolate in the Kiosko Katalino, right outside the walled city, across from Puerta de Bisagra.
Festival Medieval, in the beautiful park right across from the Puerta Bisagra.
Band of musicians performing during the "Festival Medieval."
This lady was not only the juggler and stilt-walker but also their gymnast/entertainer.
The banners all over the place. I thought they offered a nice abstract... and at the same time expressed very well the spirit of the celebration.
Artisan/vendor at work. In fact, I bought a nice piece of jewelry from him... using a credit card!
So, these are memories of a town to which I'll return in the summer of 2016 (and I intend to make it happen), when I take another group of students to Toledo, with my university. This time, I know what to expect, and not only will I take my Leica with again, but will probably pack my Summicron 50mm, just to see what happens. In the meanwhile, I'll go back to my routine, but will return to look at these images (and others that I'll post later), and hope that you get interested in going there too.
