Here we have a new madrid inhabitant, he is spending the whole winter in this place: Plaza de Jacinto Benavente, besides Plaza Mayor. Most of the time singing & dancing without shoes and socks , claiming something to heaven, giving thanks and practising the art of being in the world: invading the time with singing and little movements.

Nature and winter light…

This is one of the best periods in the year to photograph… the light is just amazing… the shadows draw… beautiful drawings… ¡oh!... by the way… this is la dehesa de la villa.

Madrid’s Cathedral, the Almudena… neo-classic, neo-gothic, neo-romantic… and a lot more in one… started in 1883 was consecrated by JPII in 1993, just 14 years ago… ¿?...

Time to think...

Time to think about your life, what you have done, what you have achieved and all the ‘carpe diem’ just lost… there is no better place to be nostalgic that all in one with nature (if that is possible in a big metropolis)… essence and property of every being…


we ask you: what activities can be perfomed inside a van? Why not using the m3 of space to develop activities instead of fulfill places with things. The surroundings of Plaza de Cascorro are always a tasty place to find the thin line between the fresh living and the boring life.

Saturday reading...

La Dehesa de la villa is not an urban park but a forest absorbed by the city… with its 60 hectares, and 850 years of history is one of the biggest parks in Madrid… The neighbourhood is fighting for that the town hall doesn’t convert this beautiful stop in an urban park full of asphalt, street lamps, and all kind of stuff were public administration like to spend money… For now la Dehesa still keeps its charming, at the same time savage, but cared look… I’ll go back to read my newspaper now…

Rome in Madrid…

San Francisco el grande dome… 33Mts of diameter… Bigger than St. Paul in London, or that ‘Les invalides’ in Paris… it just takes your breath away… for a moment the Pantheon comes to your mind… and you just don’t know were you are any more… The temple dates from 1784 and is the work of the architects, Fray Francisco Cabezas, Antonio Pló and Francesco Sabatini…

Madrid’s Plaza Mayor and its typical Christmas/new year market; here you can buy from the strangest mask to little angels for your Christmas tree…
On second plan ‘La casa de la Panaderia’ by Juan Gómez de Mora on XXVII century, typology that inspired Juan de Villanueva, one century later, to draw ‘Plaza Mayor’… The actual building and ‘affreschi’ were restored in the early 90’s.

mother's eyes
mother's arms
mother's thoughts
what do you know about your mother's life? do you know if she is happy?, is it important in your feelings?
serenity and hysteria at the same time. the impossibility of taking care of someone close to you.
(Another sunday at Rastro.Plaza Vara del Rey. Madrid)

Where are we when we listen to music?,
Where are we when staring something as if time was not running off?
is it a deep thought inside mind or is something light which occupies only the skin?
where? holes
( A muslim woman inside/outside El Rastro, Plaza Vara del Rey...a very special place)

Sunday mornings: the most authentic street market in Madrid. El Rastro. It is a market tradition. The whole quarter of Rastro and Plaza de Cascorro wakes up full of things on street. The sellers differenced by areas show off incredible ancient things.
