As from today, I’ll be taking you on a Spanish journey. I have lots of photo material from Andalucía’s Golden Triangle (Seville, Cordoba and Granada), which will find its way to my blog little by little.
Today’s pictures were taken in the Barrio Santa Cruz, Seville’s former Jewish ghetto, adjacent to the Alcázar and the Cathedral. I was wearing a simple playful, patterned sundress, a black-and-white saddle bag and black crochet espadrilles which were perfect for defying the treacherous cobblestones found at several places in the Santa Cruz quarter. I realise now that both the dress and the bag are from New Look but I vow I didn’t deliberately pair them. It just so happens that I’m pretty smitten with both (very affordable) pieces: on their own, and even more so together.
A few more words on the neighbourhood of Santa Cruz. The area’s rabbit warren of little winding (car-free) alleyways beckons to be explored without a map. As you amble through the lovely quaint backstreets, you may very well get lost – but that’s half the fun. Around every brightly painted corner, you run into a new surprise. You’ll discover olive tree shaded plazas, frustrating dead ends, checkered paving, peeling paint, charming lanterns, ancient houses with nicely carved doors and balconies, and bright flowers. These pictures were taken on and around the tiny Plaza de las Cruces (or Crosses Square), which features three marble columns, each topped by a wrought-iron cross.
We revelled in getting lost in so many ways. Directionally lost. Lost in thought. Lost for words. Without any intention whatsoever to find back the way (for a couple of hours, at least).
