la carbonería

February 25, 2015

carboneria (1)

I love that Sevilla can still surprise me. The other day I was walking back from getting my stitches out and took a turn down a street I hadn’t been down in a couple of years at least. And I spotted this carbonería (coalyard) with its doors open, so I poked my head inside. It was a huge space, very dark and, not surprisingly, quite gritty. Then I saw a fellow sitting at the far end of the adjoining room, who put down his newspaper and asked if he could help me. Well, I couldn’t say I was just browsing (for coal?) so I asked him a bit about the place. Aside from different types of coal/charcoal and cut wood, you can also buy BBQs, houseplants, bags of soil and – curiously – used books. I think I’ll go back for a mini BBQ…

friday foto finder – strange

February 20, 2015


fff - strangeThis week’s Friday Foto Finder challenge is “strange”.

This strange little face has always intrigued me. It’s in calle Lope de Rueda next to Plaza Alfaro, just outside the Casa Palacio de la Marquesa de Pickman. And I don’t know why.

Check out what other Friday Foto Finders are posting over here!
