There's nothing like slipping into a favourite sundress while on holiday! And these brightly coloured plaster walls with their peeling paint which you find in abundance in many towns in Andalusia are a gift to any photographer.
Here is my effort at the flamenco trend I posted about earlier. Apart from the earrings and floral filigree crucifix which I found in Mango whilst in Spain the rest has been shopped from the closet. I've had this diva-like sundress for over a decade now, funnily enough also a Mango find on a trip to Madrid to study flamenco. After all this time it has many a tale to tell about travelling to sun drenched destinations with me!
I've had a couple of flamenco related requests by readers. Lisa of Dangerous Curves (love that blog title!) who is a ballroom and bellydancer has asked to be directed to some flamenco costume posts. So if you missed them and you like frilly dresses here are some old posts featuring my flamenco costumes:
I've also been asked by Terry of Rags Against the Machine to elaborate on what the connection is between Gypsies and Flamenco. Oooh Terry! How long have you got? I'm no expert but have plenty of personal experience and anecdotes to draw on to give you my own opinion. Patience Terry, preparing photos, post coming...
