Gone to the Wind

 I have tried to find any information about that windmill but I could not.

At Cartagena fields (Campo de Cartagena), it was built hundreds of windmills between XVIII and XIX centuries to offer services for grinding cereals or to raise groundwater. Most of them where in use to later 40's (1949).

More info here.

A New Beginning

 There is a Spanish saying that says: "Who gets up early, God helps him/her" ("A quien madruga Dios le ayuda"). Well, we will have to get up early. But there is also another Spanish saying that says: "No por mucho madrugar amanece más temprano" that literally means "Not by much getting up early it dawns earlier" but perhaps means "Time must take its course" or "the early bird does not always catch the worm".

Anyway, that is a sunrise taken on a north entry to Murcia city.

What are you looking At!


I'm not sure if that fallow-deer is an spy due to its earpiece (LOL).

I took that picture at Terra Natura Murcia during a visit on pandemic situation, maintaning social distancing and limiting the capacity.

Come to be Framed

 Although that picture was taken some months ago, it is really a pity see the streets almost empty, but anyway, it is a very good time to go out to take some new pictures.

Background, Manterola's Bridge, near to Segura River.

 Nothing to say about that internal narrow street from a residential.

Let me Breathe


That is Alfonso X avenue at Murcia City. In past normality, it should be plenty of people walking, people sitting on tables taking some tapas, ..., but in current circumstances is almost empty. 

Picture taken from "Sound Light" exhibition.

Biscuter on the Road

 It is nice to see old (vintage) cars on streets.

That is a Biscúter, (pronunciation of BiScooter). It was a microcar manufactured in Spain, by Auto Nacional, SA, from 1953 to 1960, total of all versions around 10,000 units.That car  was minimal indeed, with no doors or windows or reverse gear. The 1 cylinder, 197 cc, two-stroke motor produced 9 horsepower. One genuinely advanced feature was an all-aluminum body, although steel was later used.

The playful name implied that it was about the size of two motorscooters, or a scooter with four wheels. But it soon became known as the Zapatilla, or little shoe (clog).

"Ugly as a Biscúter" was a common joke. (Source: Wikipedia)
