Capturing the good, the bad and the ugly of lesser-known Spain and now Southeast Asia
(1/60, F2.8, ISO100, 17mm)
Good one…like a still from Corbucci!
Wow, thanks, that’s a huge compliment as Corbucci is one of my favorite western directors; Il Grande Silenzio is one of the best westerns ever made, up there with Leone’s imo…
Yes, and also one of Klaus Kinski’s greatest performances. Your admiration for this genre is very apparent here at your site.
True, although I think I even prefer Kinski’s Herzog/Amazon-trilogy! And the landscape and nature around here (Leone chose to shoot in the south of Spain) made the western-theme pretty obvious to use here 😉
Yeah, he was awesome in Aguirre.
It’s fascinates me that the south of Spain has become iconic for that genre.
I’ve visited our own southwest many times, but a trip to southern Spain would feel more like a “pilgrimage” because of those films.
Yep, and the crazy opera-freak in Fitzcarraldo is superb too! I went to the South of Spain last year and included the Cabo de Gato NP which has a lot of sites from the Leone-trilogy and the nature park those are in is beautiful with beaches, valleys, rockcliffs and small white moorish villages; apart from the wild west-parks further away here you can find lots of settings from the movies which are hardly visited but very fascinating…
Love them sun beams.
Thanks, made it a it more than ‘just a door’ to me 😉
Photography is full of quadrilaterals and triangles. Nice shot.
Thanks, Stevie, very mathematical observation, but totally true 🙂
Wood is full of secrets – old wood is full of magic.
Thanks for this woody picture … 😉

Old wood is definitely magical, especially when it’s been left to deteriorate in time!
You’re welcome, greetings, Ron
Reblogged this on The Legion of Door Whores.
Love that slit of light falling on the door 🙂
Thank you, Bashar, that made it more than just a door for me 🙂
