Where: Las Ventas, the bullring in Madrid, Spain

When: Sept. 24, 2006

Camera: Canon PowerShot A620

Notes: Attending this bullfight was one of several experiences from our trip that we consider especially Spanish. (Another was eating squid in its own ink. The squid was great; the ink, not so much.) This event was a novillada, which means younger bulls and less experienced toreros. Still, it was an amazing spectacle.

Viewer alert: I've posted four photos from the bullfight. There's some blood in the next two. If you want to skip the other bullfight photos, go here (more recent posts) or here (older posts).

See more at JPG magazine: I've submitted several Spain photos to JPG magazine. If enough people vote for them, they may be included in the next issue. See them, and vote for them if you like, here.

Multiple posts: I brought back more than 800 photos from our three-week trip. I don't want to be posting photos of Spain for the next six months, so I'm putting up several at a time. Today, I've posted five.

Photo Friday update 1/21/07: Welcome, Photo Friday viewers. This is my entry in the category "Fast."
