Where: Cuenca, Spain
When: Sept. 27, 2006
Camera: Canon PowerShot A620
Notes: Some of Cuenca's old buildings famously hang off of a cliff overlooking a gorge; others overlook it. We wanted to see the sunrise hit those buildings from the other side of the gorge. We weren't taking any chances -- we crossed the gorge in the dark and stood out there for more than two hours. It was in the upper 40s, but I was dressed for a merely chilly Southern California morning. By the time we went in to breakfast, my fingers didn't bend so well. It was worth it, of course.
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 six.
Taking up the pen: I'm taking part in DrawMo, a community blog whose members agree to make one drawing a day this month and post it if they wish. My drawings are here. The group's Flickr page is here.
It's not really ugly anymore, but ... Dani and I have done a lot of work on our new house in San Diego. It looks pretty good now, but when we bought it, the place wasn't all that attractive, which I prove in my other blog, The Ugly House.
