10th Anniversary of MurciaDailyPhoto

Yes!!!! MurciaDailyPhoto has arrived to 10.
I am pretty happy to have the opportunity to thank your visits and comments (you are the great support of this blog) during these 10 years.
2400 photos, more than 300000 visitors. These are figures that I would never have imagined when this blog started.
Although the first post was on May 29, 2008, that day I published no photo, so, the first post with photography was on June 4, 2008.
Thank you, thank you and thank you.
I think we will continue with this at least one more year, a madness community of citydailyphoto bloggers who are the best in the world. A special thanks to the creator of all this: Eric Tenin, who started about 13 years ago with ParisDailyPhoto.

So, if you want to continue visiting MurciaDailyPhoto, I will be happy to continue showing photos of this fantastic Region of Murcia, in the southeast of Spain.

About the picture: it was taken inside Sanctuary of La Fuensanta (take a look at the picture from yesterday), and it is showing a hope to continue posting.
See you!

Here, previous blogniversaries.

Looking for depth in the image.
At Cenajo's dam.

On June 4th, MurciaDailyPhoto will turn 10. This is the momment to take a decision about this project. Now I'm very busy to maintain MuDP. Many projects surrouding me that makes me impossible to publish day by day. So, during next days I'm going to think about that. I love MuDP and the citydailyphoto community.

Tasting Healthy Food

Although you can eat traditional tapas during the whole year, at this time, on Spring Festivities time, it is the perfect time to taste typical murcian tapas.
Imge: from left to right. Murcian beer (Ale type); Murcian salad (fresh salad with onion, boiled egg, tuna, black olives and tinned plum tomatoe); Zarangollo (a scrambled egg with zucchini and onion); baked roast potatoes (seasoned with olive oil and pepper).
Delicious!
Here other Murcian tapas from and old post.

San Antolín Church.

Although this building was built between 1945 and 1961, it is the third building that is built in the same place. The previous one (18th century) was destroyed during the Spanish Civil War. And the first data of a church in this place comes from 16th century.
Very close to this church is the Wall of Veronicas (Arab wall).
