There is a beautiful, peaceful yet lively little sea-side village towards the eastern end of the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata called Las Negras.
Las Negras has some rather odd buildings that are very 70s in appearance, they almost look future-retro if you know-what-I-mean, like the backdrop of an art-house 70s sci-fi movie such as Fahrenheit 451… am I getting too abstract now?? Ah, good because that’s how the photographs ended up, it’s not my fault, it’s the fault of the ambience of the buildings, THEY made me do it!!!
I just love to study shapes, colours, light, shade and sometimes it’s enough that these elements ARE the composition – FREE YOUR MIND 🙂 Joking apart, it’s nice to sometimes look at everyday objects in a different way, in fact I’d go as far as to say it is essential for a photographer to do this!
Las Negras is actually a lovely place and the ambience is fantastic, it is a haven for live music with a wide variety of bands and street musicians playing there on a regular basis. I have played there a few times myself and it’s always a great night out. There are some lovely bars and eateries that being off the main tourist trail, are very reasonable in price, the food is delicious and mostly home-made (casera) and everyone is very friendly.
