So, it´s that time of the week again: time for Ailsa´s travel theme. This week the theme, if you hadn´t already guessed from the title, is statues. I have to admit that I found this weeks challenge a little more difficult than I had anticipated. I spent hours going through the copious amounts of photos I have accumulated over the last few years and, to my amazement, very few of them were of statues.
The vast majority of my photos are of street life or fashion. I seem to just love capturing moments as they unfold before me. I just get caught up in the beauty of life, flaws and all, and, I have to admit, I love aging beauty: the older the better. To me age is beauty; whether it´s a dilapidated old building which is bursting at the seams with history or an older person who, through the wrinkles on their face, you can tell has a story to share. I guess what I´m trying to say is that I find everyday life more intriguing than still life.
That said, I did manage to dig up some statues for this week´s theme. Each one of them coming from Cartagena in Spain. It´s funny, if you read my post on Cartagena, you may recall that I found Cartagena to be a bit of a let down. While I enjoyed my trip there; I found it lacked the usual charm that Spanish cities are filled with. However, I must have loved the statues there as I took quite a few photos of them during my trip.
So, all that remains now is to share them with you. I hope you enjoy my humble offerings to this week´s theme.

Wow the coolest thing Ive seen so far at WordPress 🙂
Wow, such a compliment! Thanks so much for your positive feedback, it´s made my day! Thank you 🙂
I enjoyed looking at your statues, Giana, but that huge head sticking out of the ground is a bit weird. 🙂
It is Sylvia, most certainly different to anything you would usually expect! Not quite sure if I like it for its quirkiness or hate it!
