Only 4h30min waiting for a emergency. If you do not in a hurry, and you have nothing more important to do, and you want to spend an entertaining afternoon, I recommend going to emergency on a Saturday evening. Holy patience.
Waiting room at Reina (Queen) Sofia General Hospital.
That is the building of the Ramon Gaya's Museum. Ramon Gaya is/was one of the most illustrious painters of the Region of Murcia.
In 1985 the Ministry of Culture awarded him the Gold Medal for Merit in Fine Arts. In 1997, he was awarded the National Prize of Plastic Arts. In 1999, Doctor honoris causa by the University of Murcia. In 2002, the Ministry of Culture granted Velázquez Visual Arts Prize in its first edition.
He died in 2005 (95 years old).
This football season, Real Murcia (the football team of Murcia, that it is on 2nd Spanish Division) returns to generate enthusiasm. To date, it ranks second place, which would give promotion to the first division. But it is too early, but that does not stop dreaming.
I've gone back to see the exhibition of Cantabella (L'Enfant terrible) with lucky of finding the artist, with which to talk about her work, so you can see the vision of the artist.
The exhibition runs until October the 27th at the Almudí Palace in Murcia. Between November the 7th to December the 13th, will be in Madrid at Kreisler Gallerie
I recommend watching this exhibition.
Sculptures based on satellites of The Little Prince, and pictures (pop art) in which the artist shows the loss of innocence.
In the picture: Cantabella is taking you a photo.
Arch of Sto. Domingo and the street musician playing an accordion.
About the arch. That type of construction was very common at nobility circles. On the left: Almodovar Palace. On the left: Church of Saint Domingo. The arch was the way to the nobility to cross the street to go to the church without putting a foot on the street.
I commented before about that street: Jabonerías (Soap Factories). That is one of the medieval street origin that you can find in Murcia city. In medieval ages, shopping streets were divided by trades. Now, that pedestrian street is a street to buy clothes, full of boutiques.
The October's Theme Day for the CityDailyPhoto community is 'Details'.
In my case I have selected those candle lamps. It is from a wedding, where each guess had to hang a candle lamp with their names.
