When we go on summer vacations in Extremadura, as we do most Augusts, the weather is usually too hot to do much besides drink and sleep during the day, but at dusk, it’s just the right temperature for a nice stroll through the countryside. Just after sunset, the stars come out with a light-pollution-free brilliance that I almost never get to enjoy. In the past, I have been a bit more serious about photographing the serene beauty of an Extremadura sunset, but this year, in a marriage of convenience and laziness, I decided to only take my iPhone with me.
Gently blowing grass.
A broken wall.
I think this wall ends in China.
I made a video, which includes a clip of Nora walking with her mother and grandparents down a country road. In the video she’s saying, “Y por eso no se puede andar!” (And that’s why you can’t walk!), repeating a reason given for why she wasn’t allowed down from the stroller during the previous stretch of dirt path.
