These swans are in the garden of Salitre (saltpeter) or La Pólvora (gunpowder).
In the early eighteenth century set up a treatment plant for the production of saltpetre gunpowder on the express orders of Philip V: this factory remained in operation until production was moved slowly to the nearby town of Javalí. But it was not until the late twentieth century when the Ministry of Defense gave the lot to the city of Murcia for the construction of a public garden. (Source: Municipality of Murcia)

Theme Day: Contrast.

First day of the month. The Theme Day has arrived, and this month the issue is CoNtRaSt.
I have not searched color contrast, I have not sought contrast of textures, I have not sought contrast in sizes. In fact, what I've found is a photo of a couple of years ago during the course of a football indoor match (here the Asthes website) in the football league where I play.
The City Daily Photo community has post pictures about the Theme Day: Click here to view thumbnails for all participants
