The site of the Elysian

The site of the Elysian

The Elysian now stands where this large empty space was in 2005. There used to be a post office there, but unfortunately I never got a photo of it before it was demolished. Anyone?

Off in the distance you can see the chimneys of old industries that are now long gone.

A Selfie in Madrid

A Selfie in Madrid

I loved staying in Madrid. There’s a great buzz there and the streets were packed with people. Great for street photography. Not so great in this pandemic world.

The Tritons’ Fountain in Valetta

Tritons' Fountain

The fabulous Tritons’ Fountain in Valetta, Malta. The fountain was built between 1952 and 1959. I’m glad I saw it after it was restored in 2018. It seems to have had an interesting life if the Wikipedia page is to be believed.
