white city







I'm posting this from our bedroom in London, with the windows open and the breeze blowing the white curtains. It's a perfect day outside: crisp, almost cool but warm in the sun. We're leaving for holiday tomorrow: to the end of Long Island. Home. Swimming, sunshine, family, dinner on the deck. Thinking about what to pack, I uncovered some old photos - from my dad's Pentax, pre-blog, pre-digital - and am struck by how my style just never changes. Same haircut. Wish I'd kept these orange trousers, though: he had bought them in a shop in Tarifa, didn't like them, I wore them for a while, but they were too... orange.

Shot in one of the white towns in Andalusia.. maybe five years ago. Or, more.

Those photos are amazingly beautiful. Love the contrast of clay pots and your orange pants against those white walls in the first photo. So clean! Almost surreal. Luis Bunuel's An Andalusian Dog comes to mind...

Have a great time with your family!!
