Spectators At The Corrida

.
Corrida At Villareal 11

I'll bring my camera to work today and try so start collecting local material at lunchtime. It's been so warm the trees and flowers are three or four weeks ahead of normal schedule so there's some dewey-fresh vegitation out there to shoot.

For now, a few more images from the corrida at Villareal, Costa Rica, last weekend. Above, two apparently bored young women who look particularly poignant in B&W. Below, the shield on the boy's shirt says New York City Training 1982. Well, English language tee shirts in Japan make even less sense. Last, the grandstand begins to fill before the show with a fair number of gringos in attendance. The boy on the far left is wearing a New York Mets baseball hat. The man with red horns is selling light-up trinkets to children.

It looks more and more like the portal is out of business. I relied on my Favorties page to scroll through my friends' blogs. I'm starting to reconstruct my own list so I can get back to regular commenting.

Thanks for all the kind comments yesterday on the anniversary post.

They do look a bit bored.

What a sweet shot that second one is.

Hello, Robert - Those are really lovely pictures of the spectators.

I e-mailed Eric of CDP who just returned my inquiry. He told me that the portal had been hacked, which is what I'd feared - don't know why, but it was the first thing that occurred to me. Said they're working to have it up this weekend.

Your first photo, of the two girls, is lovely.

Love these images Bob, the little boy in the second shot has such a cheeky wee face! Laughed at the man with the red horns, as if it's quite a normal thing haha!

Love that little boy looking straight at you. That big smile is worth millions !
