After about 8 years of visiting friends in the Pre-Pyrenees and enjoying the hills, abandoned villages, green valleys, rivers and mountains, I got the opportunity to live in Zaragoza with ‘mi novia’ and now I can enjoy the provence Aragon and its ‘Bueno, Feo y Malo’ surroundings to the fullest. Here’s the result of my love for photography and all that mother nature gives and takes back from us. Starting on the 25th of August 2011 I’m celebrating the fact that I’ve been living and enjoying life in Aragon and Spain by trying to up the stakes to one photo a day for the year to come…
Since December of 2013 my travels took me to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and therefor from that point on I will also include more photos from my travels around Southeast Asia. But the huge archive from my Spanish roadtrips will always be an endless source for new and ´recycled´ photos.

So much so good pictures in one place. Great job. Greetings from Poland.
Am looking forward to exploring your blog more. South East Asia is my favourite travel destination with more still yet to discover. I love Spain and I have only scratched the surface there, so that’s a match I reckon. Louise
Hi Louise, thanks for dropping by, really enjoyed your posts about trekking to Everest Base camp, very inspirational!
SE Asia has been a blast the last 3 years, really interesting cultures and amazing scenery! Do miss Spain, but was fortunate to have live there for 4 years! Ron
I love, love, love your pictures! I´m learning Spanish and hope to visit Spain one day. I´ll get many ideas what to see in your posts, for sure.
If you´d like, have a look at my blog http://www.laniusminor.cz (I know, Czech is not a major language, but it´s challenging, isn´t it? ;).
Feliz Navidad y muy inspirativo aňo 2017!
Great posts and photos! Thanks for stopping by my Travel and Photography site. 🙂
Hi Ron, Thank you for following my photography blog, Jane’s Lens. I hope you enjoy my work. Your images are fabulous and I look forward to your blog.
Hi Jane, been following your stuff for a long time, really like your blog, thanks for dropping by! Greetings from Malaysia, Ron
Hi Ron, You know, when I got your recent follow note and went on your site, it was all so familiar! I have followed you, too, and enjoy your images. Thanks.
Thanks, Jane, yep, have been around for a long time but I tend to have these long stretches of not blogging or participating, but it´s always nice to come back and look around!
Have a great day, greetz.
Agree, it’s difficult to keep up with it all. Thanks.
True, especially when traveling a lot 😉
Thanks for the like on my recent post. I am trying to do more black and white shots. I enjoyed looking through your B&W shots for some inspiration. Best Wishes!
Hi Eddie, thanks for having a look at them, saw that you are already making beautiful B&W´s!
All the best for 2016 for you too,
You have very amazing pictures and all the color are really wonderful I like the way you shoot
Thank you so much, Ledgardo, very flattering to hear, hope all is well!

Thanks for visiting my blog and the like. Great to connect with others who share same passion and interests.
I will come back tomorrow. Just stopped by to marvel at your new gravatar. I feel new energy here with the new year. My best to you Ron!
😉 Thanks, Paula, thought about a more ´mature´ gravatar and as I just posted this on instagram I thought it suited well; will do a repost of it today.
Old one is over here:
long time ago!
Best to you too, Paula, almost weekend!!
You have a great eye!
Thanks for the visit.

Love your stuff on Spain. It’s been so many years since I’ve been there, your blog makes me want to go back asap.
Thank you very much, it´s been more than half a year for me now as well, but with my use archive of photos from my 3 years spent there, it´s still going strong and planning to go back as well 😉
Nice to hear you were encouraged by my photos to see it again as well, such a great country!
Breathtaking images! You give life to those long forgotten or unseen places in a way that becomes pure art. Thanks for sharing your great work.
Thanks very much, Willy, thats such a flattering compliment, cuz thats exactly what I want to achieve with all these abandoned histories and places!
Hope all is well, greetings, Ron.
Hi Ron, thank you for liking my photo essay on Dubrovnik, you have a very interesting blog. I am now a follower.
Hello Martin, you´re welcome and thanks for your enthousiasm, hope you enjoy what´s coming, all the best from Malaysia!
Hi Ron, bedankt voor t bezoeken van mijn blog, blij dat je dat gedaan hebt, ben ontzettend onder de indruk van je foto’s! – thanks for visiting my blog, I’m glad that you did, very impressed by your pictures!
Nederlands is helemaal goed hoor, vond jouw foto´s ook erg fraai; die laatste zie ik nu, die had ik zo gemaakt willen hebben, stil woonachitg in nl?
Dank je voor compliment, groet, Ron.
Dank daarvoor! Ja ik woon nog in Nl, bij de Veluwe, blijft altijd mooi… maar zal zeker ook wel in de toekomst naar t buitenland gaan!
Ah, de mooie Veluwe, daar kom ik oorspronkelijk ook vandaan, de eerste 18 jaar van mijn leventje zat ik in Putten of all places, wel prachtige bossen en heide om de hoek!
Je bedoelt buitenland als in emigreren (ook) of veel reizen?
Thanks for popping in to ‘jamoroki’ Ron. Spain is one of my favourite countries and spent many happy hours in Almeria and wandering in the Alpuharras during the 1980’s. Love your pics; they bring back memories.
Hello James, I can imagine you enjoyed the Alpujarras around that time, only got to visit the area a couple of years ago, but must have been really unspoilt around that time? dont get me wrong it was beautiful!
Thanks and it became memories for me too 😉
Your work is just stunning. Many thanks for your recent visit.
Well, that was a pleasure, thanks for stopping by here and thanks also for your kind words!
Hope all is great, greetz, Ron.
Greetings from Japan!

Great blog! Fantastic pictures, and I really appreciate the stores and the history really adds weight.
Thank you very much, Robin, glad you enjoyed it and took the time to read some!
Hello Ron, thank you for the visit on my site! 🙂 Your photography is awesome and it inspires me so much. Keep posting wonderful pictures of the mountains! Do you work a lot with HDR? Greetings
Hello Suze, youre welcome and thanks for your kind words, very flattering to hear! Oh those Spanish mountains, i miss those (now living in Malaysia, beautiful too, but different!)…
Actually I almost never use HDR, my last one is, but guess theres not more than a handful out of almost 500 photos. I always try to keep it down, cuz i dont like those obvious hrd-shots.
Well, thanks again and nice to follow your travels too,
I love your blog and I look forward to seeing more of your posts 🙂
Wow, thanks very much, Norma, thats superb to hear and hope I won´t disappoint 😉
All the best to you, Ron.
what an adventure!! Your photos reflect your reverence of nature and life!
That´s very nice of you to say, Cybele! Very happy to hear that some of what I like and see gets thru in my photos!

your pictures are stunning!
Thank you, Alex, great to see you here, welcome, very nice to follow your travels as well!
Thank you Ron for the ‘like’s’ on some of my pages, but to be perfectly honest, the next hour was way beyond like, more an exquisite delight to see such an array of beautiful photography on your site here. Again, thank you. I got no work done, but I feel so refreshed from my journey across those lovely old homes and landscapes. Namaste
Wow, thats very cool to hear, very flattered by your enthousiasm, thanks very much for your interest in my work. I guess the privilege of not doing paid work is you can photograph whatever I feel like but like you said I definitely get inspired by some objects and views more than other!
Your blog, your images are incredible. So happy I stumbled upon you today – thank you for visiting my blog!
Hi Debi, thanks a lot for your compliment, so glad to here you enjoyed it here! Very welcome to visit yours too.
Warm greetings from Malaysia, Ron.

Thanks very much, Julian, did visit your place, liked lots of your stuff (as you may have noticed)!
Thank you, Ron! 🙂
Your photographs are beautifully rich with color and texture, which I admire very much. I also like the composition and perspective that trends in your work, your ability to capture common things in uncommon ways. Now that I found your blog, I’ve followed it so I can continue to enjoy and be inspired by your creative expressions of the world that surrounds us.

Hello Earl, thanks so much for stopping by! Those are huge compliments and very happy to here that my personal view is appreciated, because it´s sometimes very hard to see beyond your own creations and try to understand what the viewer experiences these glimpses of the places I get to see!
Hope to see you around, all the best to you, Ron.
This was a very tough post for me to photograph and write about, as it probably was for you to view and read. So a super thank you rondje for “Liking” the post “Horrific”. Streets Of Our World on my photography blog http://www.throughharoldslens.com.
On behalf of the Through Harold’s Lens Creative Team, my trusty sidekick Mr. SLR Nikon, his brother Mr. Pen Pal and myself, we truly appreciate your enjoyment. We hope you continue to join us on our journeys.

well, hope you are ok
Hi Ron, thanks so much for stopping by my blog. Haces unas fotos increíbles. I really enjoy your shots. Desde ahora te visitaré con frecuencia 🙂 Un saludo, Livia.
Hola Livia y bienvenido, my pleasure finding yours too!
muchas gracias por tu cumplibo.
Hi! Thanks for bringing my attention to your work by following my blog. You have a really great site here and I’m sure your photography will inspire me a lot, now that I’ve just started learning digital photography. I plan to keep checking it out. Wishing you many exciting roads and experiences ahead! Yael
Thanks for the compliment and very nice to follow your adventures in California, such colorful photos and stories and some memories of a holiday i spent in the Southwest US couple of years ago. I think your photos are great by the way.
Shame i have to leave Spina but new horizons to explore 😉
I love your photos…Not sure if you accept awards, but I nominated you anyway…
Hola Sue, sorry to have seen this so late; very kind of you to choose my blog, very flattered! Never do awards, guess I´m just a lazy photographer 😉
Hope all is well and thanks for the support, so very much appreciated!
Warm greetings from Spain, Ron.
You have some amazing pictures here. Really cool and I just love them. Hopefully one day I will be as good. My road journey is just starting, bnut thanks for letting me into yours! MM 🍀
PS love for you to come back and give critical advice! MM
Thanks a lot, Mick, that´s very flattering to hear, but I´m still a learner too. Will follow your journey and will do!
Have a great journey, Ron.
Hi Ron, thanks so much for stopping by my page and introducing me to yours that way. I love your pictures and all the amazing stuff you have turned up in Spain! Makes me want to travel there very badly!!
Hola Andreas, you´re very welcome and welcome here as well; thanks very much for your appreciation!
If you ever do, please ask for advice, the Northern part (closest to you) and especially the province of Aragon i know pretty well 😉
Thanks for stopping by! Your images are stunning! Looking forward to more of your work!
Thank you, very kind of you to say, all the best to you, Ron.
Thanks for visiting! I don’t think I could possibly keep up with one photo a day, but you seem to be managing very well with it. Keep up the good work!
All the best, John
Hi John, thanks for stopping by, I quitted the one a day last year in august after a year; when I started that i didnt even know about the existence of so many 365-blogs. Now I focus on quality instead of quantity 😉
Warm greetings from Spain, Ron.
I will look forward to following your blog! It is an inspiration. Beautiful images. Great textures!
Hola Patty, thanks so much for the follow, hope you enjoy future stuff, all the best to and greetings, Ron.
Thanks for the recent visit to and follow of my blog. It had the happy consequence of leading me here and I’ve really enjoyed viewing your images. Keep up the great work!
Hi Kerry, i love your landscapes and they always inspire…
Thanks for the compliment, hope you will view it as great work in the future too 😉
Have a great day, Ron.
Thanks so much for the follow over on my blog; I consider this quite an honor. Your photography from Spain is captivating and really makes me want to explore my ancestry there. You may have started something!
Oooh, thats nice of you to say, but i love to see other peoples styles and i like your view and part of the world. Thanks for the compliment and your support, so what do you know about your Spanish ancestry or is it very long ago?
Warm greetings, Ron.
Wow Ron, i really like your story. Great shots. Thank you for coming around to my blog. Maybe you can school me on Spain. I’m actually not an all knowing source of legend and lore…but I’m working on it lol. I get a lot of my material from interesting and cultured people such as yourself. People share and I wander. It goes well together, I’ve yet to be let down 🙂
Thanks again for coming by my blog. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I’ve enjoyed yours.
Hi Christa, thanks for stopping by, loved your blog too, very unique! Spain is filled with legends and a rich history, people over here are much more superstitious than us dutchies i guess. Hope to see ya around and nice to ´meet´ ya
Ron, thank you. If you have anything you would like to share I would LOVE to hear it. I get the BEST information from insiders, and I thrive on it xo
Hi Christa, everytime i read about places i go, mostly abandoned, and look up info about it later i find that Spanish people always believe they are haunted places, but guess thats the same everywhere around the world; its that Spain has a pretty dark past and that will probably make those feelings stronger here, dont know examples but just ask anytime you see something that looks interesting….
Have a great weekend and good luck, Ron.
Sounds about right. We have the same issue here in the states. If there is something in ruins, there’s usually a story. A big creepy win here are the abandon asylums in the north east.
Hi Ron, greetings from the great white north. Beautiful photos with lots of passion behind them. When a photo as the ability to stop me and lure me in for a detailed look I get excited. I love to look at photography that’s of a different style than mine. Btw, thanks for stopping by my blog it’s much appreciated. Speak soon!
Hello Mark, thanks and very warm greetings from Spain 😉
Thanks for the compliments, nice to know that you like my photos, definitely totally different than your style of street/portrait, but therefor even more interesting and inspiring. See ya around and have a great week, Ron.
wonderful shots! all the best – Tanja
Thank you very much, Tanja, hope all is great there too, greetz, Ron.
Hi Ron, Thanks for following my photography blog. I hope you are inspired! I would love to see Spain one day…your photos are beautiful and I look forward to seeing more.
Oooh, sorry for late reply, very inspirational to see photos from another part of the world! Thanks for stopping by here, hope you´re still positive about Spain 😉
Hope all is well, Greetings, Ron.
Like virtually all pictures I see on your blog. A click on Follow is the natural next step!
Haha, thanks a lot, Dan, guess there´s a lot by now, so the bigger the compliment, will try to revisit some i like myself too, so enough chances to see old & new. Hope all is great there, greetz, Ron.
Thanks for visiting my blog and liking my picture, you have some amazing photos on here, i am following and will definitely visit again 🙂
Hola Frankie, thank you for stopping by, so great to hear you like my photos, hope youre still enjoying them 😉
All the best to you, Greetings, Ron.
Thanks for liking my “Name that Photograph” post, Ron!
Youre welcome, Jonathan, all the best, Ron.
Hello Rondje, very nice pictures of that part of Pyrenees I love!
Thank you for like my post “Les Albères”!
Hi and thanks for the compliment. The Pyrenees are so desolate and beautiful, gotta love em!
Youre welcome, hope all is well, greetz, Ron.
Hi and thanks for visiting my blog! I LOVE the Pyrenees, Aragon, Zaragoza and that entire area. It’s so beautiful and largely undiscovered. We were there for 6 weeks last summer…just a small taste, and cannot wait to go back! Where do you live?
Hi there, thanks for your visit here! Totally agree on Aragon, most amazing province ive seen in Spain; lived in Zaragoza for 2 years and now in Madrid for a year but every chance i get i try tyo explore more Aragon and mountains 😉
If you ever choose to revisit, let me know and I can try to give some advice if necessary, warm greetings, Ron.
Excellent photos, thanks for posting. Graham, YourHobby…..
Hi Graham, thank you! hope all is well and youre still enjoying em 😉
Warm greetings from Spain, Ron.
Lovely photographs! Looking forward to more such beautiful photographs…
Thank you very much, hope all is well and you still enjoy them 😉
All the best, Ron.
Hi Rondje, thanks for checking out my blog 🙂 your photos are so inspiring, really make me miss Spain! Completely with you on the beauty of Aragon, such an interesting region to visit! Keep the photos coming, am keen to see more hidden gems that you have captured.
Hola, bit late but hope you´re still enjoying my Aragon photos and all! Greetings, Ron.
Thanks for visiting. Your photos are incredible.
Thanks very much, Reggie, hope to see you around, have a good week and greetz, Ron.
Ron, these are absolutely gorgeous photos — How fantastic to live in and travel around Spain and document the beauty! Thank you for stopping by and checking out Travel Oops! Cheers, Steph
Yep feel very Lucky to be able to do this; unfortunately now bit further away from my beloved province of Aragon and the Pyrenees having moved from Zaragoza to Madrid, but there´s enough to explore around here too 🙂
Enjoyed reading about your travels too, all the best, Ron.
Thanks for liking my post “Land of Shadows”. Your photos of Aragon are very poetic and beautiful. I am glad that you brought me to your blog.
You´re welcome, Rosemarie, nice to here you enjoyed my photos; guess Aragon is very unknown to a lot of people, but definitely one of the most beautiful provinces in Spain, i think; from the mountains in the north through the Ebro valley with its semideserts and the natural parks all over, not to mention its 400plus abandoned villages 😉
Ron, thanks for visiting my blog. Nice idea this blog…and awesome place to discovery Aragon…I dream on gettin into night shooting one day and get to the Bardenas Reales….I am from not a far away place…Tarragona…Will follow your blog!
Hola Javi, definitely love Argon and thought more people should here and see it; not too much, cuz i love the quietness and vastness of it 😉
Now actually living close to Madrid, so Aragon and Zaragoza are very much missed here, never been to Tarragona, but know lots of people from Zgz go there for its beaches.
The Bardenas Reales is very impressive, never knew such a place existed in Europe; looks like Southwest of US!
Hasta luego, Ron.
Thanks for visiting my blog!I love the light in your photos,sun is something we are definiately missing here in Ireland!
Hi Olaesu, thank you for stopping by here; well last couple of weeks it been pretty bad over here, but normally you can find sun and nice shadows all over the place 😉
Thank you so much for visiting my blog! Your blog is a chamber of treasure – I will most certainly be back. We hiked in the Pyrenées last summer and Spain is fantastic.I love your texture, colour and everything about your pictures that I’ve seen so far.
You´re welcome, Ann-Christine!Nice to hear you like my photos and i very much love the Pyrenees, so much more quiet compared to Alps and as impressive at times 😉
All the best to you, Ron.
Thanks for your visit on my blog first of all.
Am not sure wether to use English or Dutch here 😉
Just wanted to say you have an amazing and very inspiring blog, it has been awhile since I came across a blog containing so much diversity
You have an amazing eye and feel for catching the colors and subjects and could have pressed a like on just about every post you placed ..
Thank you very much for sharing and will definatly keep a close watch on whats next to come 🙂
Nederlands is prima, hoor, woon nu ruim twee jaar hier, maar ik ben nog gewoon een kaaskop met Spaanse trekjes (de goeie, hoop ik!).
Leuk dat je rond gekeken hebt en super om te horen dat je meeste kon waarderen, dank daarvoor…
Ben zo nu en dan ook oudere fotos aan het her-posten, al dan niet opnieuw ge-edit, die in het stille begin hier geplaatst heb, alleen dan iets meer kwaliteitscontrole 😉
Groetjes vanuit stiekem regenachtig Spanje, Ron.
Hola Ron, Thanks for liking my photo of La Chascona’s door on the Legion. Like you I also love Spain. I will be visiting again later this year and Zaragoza is on my list. Your photographs look good. I will be checking in to see more images.
Spains is amazing but havent seen half of it yet after living here for two and a half years, so i keep exploringas much as I can.
Zaragoza was my hometown for two years and if you need any advice on things to see, landscape, cities, historic sites in and out of town, let me know, gladto help!
All the best to you and thanks for stopping by, Ron.
I love your b&w photos. Great work Rondje!
Thanks very much, Mirela, very cool to hear! Saludos, Ron.
Thanks for the recent likes. Your photos are beautiful. You are a master of color, texture, and framing. (What else is there?!)
Wow, thanks for saying that, John, i hope to still learn a lot, telling more of a story cuz i think i overdone it on the technical part sometimes 🙂
All the best to you, Ron.
Hey thanks for the visit and like on my blog, you have a great blog here.
Thsnk you, Mark, glad you like it, enjoyed yours too. Greetings, Ron.
Dear Ron, so good to explore your vision of the world! Your artistry is inspiring!
Thanks a lot, Carlos, very flattering of you to say! Have a great weekend, Ron.
Thank you for visiting my blog. You have a great blog. I think I’ll often visiting your blog 🙂
Thanks for stopping by and it´s great to hear you like my blog, hope to see you lots here 😉
All the best to you, Ron.
Hi Ron, I have really enjoyed looking around your blog. I especially like how you have processed your photos. The composition and the colours, especially in your more recent posts are captivating. I look forward to following you and learning from you.
Muchas gracias, Anna Marie, thats very cool to hear, hopefully my end-results come closer and closer to the view i had in mind while shooting; but still you cannot make a good picture out of a mediocre one through postprocessing. Hope all is well there,
A fine blog you have here. Excellent images. Enjoyed going through.
Thanks a lot, i know theres a bit much to start with but will do the selection for you in the future
Keep the cam with you all the time Ron , I really enjoyed watching the world from your lens
Hello Abdul, will definitely do that, especially knowing there´s somebody else watching over my shoulder from New Zealand 😉
Thanks for that and warm greetings from Spain,
Thank you for stopping by and following Clicks & Corks as well as liking two of my images: much appreciated!
Your blog is beautiful and so is your photography! Many great, great shots. Well done.
I only wish you added a “follow” button to your blog so I would get your new posts in my inbox whenever you publish them: any chance you would do that?…
Thank you for visiting and nice to hear you like what you saw; i guess you can follow through wordpress,but also if you log out of wp theres an email-follow-button to the right low corner, i thought, sorry for inconvenience 😉
Have a great day, Ron.
Hola, Dank voor je bezoek aan m’n blog. Ik heb een tijdje rond gekeken, hiero, en ben onder de indruk: prachtige foto’s! Ik ga dan ook niet op alle individuele ‘Like’ knopjes drukken; maar doe het met deze reactie voor alles wat ik tot nu toe gezien heb. adios!
Hola Harrie, dank voor je compliment, leuk te horen dat je onder de indruk bent; ben sinds half jaar meer bezig met doorselecteren en kwaliteit omhoog ipv elke dag een foto, dat gaat uiteindelijk toch ten koste van de kwaliteit, ondanks dat ik flink archief had voordat ik eraan begon 😉
Groet en hopelijk gaat alles goed in het Hollandse, Ron.
Your photographs are superb. Beautiful 🙂
Thank you very much, Sam, hope youre ok! All the best from Spain, Ron.
I can tell you everything is fine because you can’t see my eye. Lol… I’m great! Just teasing you on the post you blogged “Behind these eyes”. The music is great! Thanks for sharing your precious arts 😀
haha, you can tell me anything, just hope its true this time 😉
Nice you like the music, normally only blogging about photos but couldnt resist this music after his passing!
Glad you enjoy
Thanks so much for visiting my blog and liking my photo! I appreciate it very much. 😀
You´re very welcome, Jackie, thanks for stopping by here.Greetings, Ron.
Hi! thank you so much for visiting my blog today, Love your awesome work here 🙂
Thanks, Andy, nice to hear you enjoyed yourself here too. hope all is well, Ron.
Hi! Thank you for visiting my blog, Love your work here 🙂 🙂
Well, not sure which blog you arre 😉 but your welcome, glad you liked mine too
Thanks for dropping by my blog and liking a post. You have some impressive images here.
Welcome, enjoyed it, glad you liked mine too!
All the best, Ron.
I’ve look through a lot of pages of your photographs and feel you certainly know your way around a camera. You have good exposure and processing skills. I must admit in a lot of cases I found composition as your weakest link. There were a lot of well composed photos that were excellent but in other cases I kept asking myself what the subject was. Your abstract work gets too caught up in form and lack direction. Understand that you’re one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen in blogs. I’m not even taking away from your better work. Ask yourself if any given shot could be taken with a cellphone and you’l get what I’m trying to say. You’re good but inconsistant. Thanks for posting such an interesting blog. – Bob
Hello Bob, thanks so much for your profounded feedback; really love it, so much more to learn from comments like yours. I totally understand your point, but if you feel like it, maybe point out some shots where the composition took away from the subject, if there was a clear subject. Agreed on the abstract shot, totally focused on form and style when I look for compositions there. One of the things that came with posting for a year is the loss in quality for sure; also i sometimes used photos that were more about documenting what there is around in Spain and some are more bout the photography. Thats one thing I wanted to change after that year, more focus on The photo than documenting!
Really grateful for your compliment but especially the interest and feedback, very helpful!
all the best to you, Ron.
Great blog Ron, you have some great shots with a lovely use of light…..I’m now following your blog. Thanks for visiting my blog and for the likes.
Hola Mark, bit late but thanks nonetheless for your feedback and nice to be on the same jury with you.
What amazing photos! Thank you for finding my blog – I’m following yours now, and I look forward to more beautiful shots! You have a great eye.
Thanks, Nadine, nice to have found yours too, thanks for the follow and really hope you enjoy whats coming up….
Beyond jealous. . . I spent my junior year in Toledo, dated a man from Zaragoza. I still have many momentos from that period, including 12 rolls of film (I lost my roll from Sevilla). Did I mention that I’m old? This was in 1984. I wish I had the time to go back and spend a year simply doing photography. What a wonderful talent you have, and definitely a particular style, eh? I’m going to follow you. . . looking forward to seeing photos of Toledo 😉 C’mon. You know you want to go.
Hola Sandra, thanks so much for your compliment and I can understand your fond memories, must have been even more traditional when you were here, although Zaragoza is still very Spanish, really fell in love with that city and its surroundings (as you can see here).
Been visiting Toledo twice now and its amazing, have to make sure you´re there during the week to wander its alleys alone, same goes for Segovia and Avila who both are close and amazing medieval feeling cities too.
Guessthere must be some around already, for sure Toledo´s cathedral detail, but probably more to come
All the best to you y saludos, Ron.
Very nice body of work. You’ve got a great eye for composition and your captures are very evocative. Truly enjoyable. Thanks for looking at some of my captures.
Gracias, Allan, very cool and flattering of you to say, still very much learning and the wp-community helps a lot by viewing, feedbacking and discussing.
Thanks for your compliments, greetz, Ron.
Hey, Ron…I appreciate the note you left the other day…now I know you’re here. You’ve some incredible work…thought-provoking and inspiring.
Mucho gusto, y buena suerta con sus viajes.

Gorgeous photos. Such intriguing moods you capture, and sensations they evoke in us viewers. I also love accompanying my writing and photos with songs & lyrics…..I am in love with music and sound, and the way sensory awareness is enhanced by coupling sight, with sound, with feeling. Brava. And thanks for stopping by my blog. ❤
Wow, thats great to read, so happy to hear my photos reach (some) people. Thanks for all the compliments andI love music a lot too, just to lazy to post some with my photos as I promised before, but titles are lots of times referring to songs, film etc..
All the best, Ron.

No problem….that´s life 😉

Thank you very much, ck, thats really cool, but I’d rather let my photos do their thing and leave me out of the equation 🙂
Doesn’t mean I’m less flattered with your nomination…
Haha… No worries! 🙂
thank you for liking my Lordsburg Arizona pic. Your images are stunning.
Thank you, Yvette, glad you enjoyed mine too.
Actually I wanted to comment to the photos I like but that’s impossible – they’re ALL amazing!
This kind of photography is what I always wanted to do but in some way it doesn’t work out…
Keep it up!

Well thank you very much, PeM, thats a huge compliment; hopefully the past and future of my photos can get your appreciation!
This is amazing, I has always wanted to explore Aragon. I don’t know why, but I have always been drawn to the region. I think this is where the magic is! Thanks for sharing, looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful images. Peace, lee
Wow, thanks, Lee! Cool that you’re interested; there’s lots to explore already around here. Aragon is amazing, from deserts to the high mountains and canyons of the Pyrenees, lots of history and abandonment too. IF you ever have questions or plan to visit, let me knwo, I’m very happy to be assisting. Also really cool to have met you and your blog, really interesting!
Thank you for looking through my photos. Your stuff is beautiful.
Thank you for the compliment and you’re welcome, enjoyed it too.

You’re welcome, Carol, hope I won’t disappoint! Greetings, Ron
Thanks for following my blog and liking my posts!
Muchas gracias, Carlos!
Really interesting site. I’d imagine you’d make a good film director as well…many of your images seem like stills from really good movies.
Thanks for stopping by and the compliments; very intrigued by the photography in movies way before I got serious with photogtaphy I guess it must have influenced me. So you can imagine how big a compliment it is, thx and greetings, Ron
Thanks for liking a recent post Watching the Neighborhood.
You’re welcome, Rich, thanks for stopping by…
Me gusta tu blog. I´ll definitely come back again! 🙂
Muchas gracias, Ana! Espero tu vuelta 🙂
A great site you have here – am particularly enjoying your monochrome and architecture shots – two great interests of mine also!
Thank you, Mike!
Those are definitely a part of my stuff, most of the times I like the two combined as well…
Your pictures are beautiful! I love the title of your blog as well, The Good, the bad and the ugly : ).
Thanks very much! The funny thing is, apart from the fact that the Spanish translate everything including names (e.g Prince Charles is Principe Carlos :), that they translated the good, the bad and the ugly into the good, the ugly and the bad!!
Great work… keep it up! Thanks for dropping by my new blog …umlungu… g*
will do and greetings to you, ‘white man’…had to google that one 🙂
Thanks for visiting my blog site. Your articles backed up by your photos in here are indeed great. Looking forward for more of your photos.
Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment here!
Gracias por pasar por mi blog, has hecho que pueda conocerte, tu trabajo me encanta, seguiremos en contacto, saludos
Me gusta tu photos tambien y gracias a ti por pasar aqui! saludos
Very good work! I really like the quality of your photos. I live in Zaragoza and I had a really good time browsing through your blog. Many a time I’ve walked past good street arts without even paying attention to them. You’ve made me rediscovered the city. Maño! Pon más fotos!!
Hola, thanks for stopping by, glad you enjoyed the pictures! I’ve een living here for almost two years now and do I love Zaragoza and Aragon, the variety, history, people and nature are incredible. I will definitely come up with more street art, but there’s just too much to photograph 🙂
Gracias por el cumplidos!
I’ve just gone through your archived posts and am very impressed with the high quality of work here. Excellent!
Thanks very much! Just checked out your frontpage, lots of photos i wish i took myself 🙂 (will check older posts)
Your architectural photography is excellent, enjoyed surveying the many different shots. I look forward to seeing more of your work.
Thanks, Dennis, good to hear you enjoyed it! Hope to impress with future architectural shots, but ther’s so much to photograph around here; especially landscapes and abandoned villages 🙂
Thanks for choosing to follow my blog. I hope you enjoy my photos as much as I enjoy yours.
Youre welcome, looking forward to your textures and other shots as well…
Hi Ron, I like the photos you have here! Thanks very much for following my blog, I hope you’ll enjoy it! FATman
Thanks a lot, Adrian!
Looking forward to yours as well.
Thanks for liking my post Castle in America.
Great shot, beautiful colours! Hope you like mine too…
Without a doubt. Here’s one of my favorites – https://elbuenoelfeo.wordpress.com/2012/03/02/cristo-de-cuevla-torre-de-calcetin-2/
Thank you for ‘liking’ my ‘Patterns in the sand’ and, as a result, for introducing me to your site. You have a magnificent selection of photos. The subjects you choose interest me greatly – Spain, patterns, texture, shape, colour. I look forward to the challenge you have set yourself and will return – soon and regularly!
Guess we have a lot of interests in common. Like to see your close-ups and natural patterns coming up as well!
En dan lees je ineens Nederlands, wat grappig! En ik maar denken dat dit een Spaans blog was, wat het eigenlijk ook wel weer een beetje is!
Maar leuk om hier weer eens een ‘fellow’ Nederlander tegen te komen.
Prachtige foto’s! en erg leuk om je Barca foto’s te zien, brings back great memories.
Ik ga je volgen…kijken wat dit jaar voor moois in petto heeft…
Hallo Joanna, bedankt voor je complimenten en commentaar!
Ja, ik denk dat het een Spaans Engelstalig blog door een Nederlander is voor iedereen.
Barcelona is geweldig, maar ik ben nog groter liefhebber van de natuur en de verlaten dorpen van Aragon, dus die zullen wel weer veelvuldig voorbij komen dit jaar. Leuk idee ook voor je 365-blog om water als onderwerp te nemen, maar je maakt het jezelf niet makkelijk 🙂
Nee ik weet dat ik het mezelf niet makkelijk maak, maar ik hou wel van een uitdaging 😉
en ik schrijf ook in het engels, is nu eenmaal meer toegankelijk!
Ik ben benieuwd naar je natuurfoto’s… stiekem hebben die bij mij ook meer de voorkeur boven city-pics, hoewel deze ook zeker zijn charme hebben.
Keep up the good work
Voorlopig ben je goed bezig met agua als onderwerp, ook altijd mooi met bewegende objecten leuke dingen doen!
Zullen wel weer vooral verlaten dorpen-foto’s worden, die hebben toch mijn voorkeur, maar ik ga niks uit de weg 🙂
he, wat leuk! kWas nog nooit op dit nieuwe blog van je geweest! Ga ik nu doen.
Hola, gracias! Dacht ik maak er maar es eentje voor de Spaanse foto’s.
