Random Sights in Jerez, Jerez de la Frontera, Andalusia, Spain



A new town reveals itself slowly - good parts, bad parts, scenic parts, curious parts. This building is, for example, in great disrepair but was a powerful eye-catcher for me as I wandered around town - it has character. Its progressive layers of deterioration create a fascinating story of a life that I can only imagine.



Most folks walk by without even noticing it.



Layer upon layer of rock, brick, stucco, paint - lifetimes of use and stories of lives within.



Did the owner fall on hard times, or, pass away, or, is waiting for the market to turn?



Elsewhere, a downtown fountain and statuary in central Jerez.



Not every place can successfully paint their exterior in such bold blues and golds but this restaurant managed it quite well.



A cobblestone street, a red dedicated bike lane, and some doorway graffiti caught my eye.



This archway of jacaranda trees on Calle Porvera will turn a blazing purple later in the year.  What a sight that must be! It takes foresight and vision to plant trees for how they might look 50 years in the future.
