Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer Lovin’ in the Madrid Park

Summer brings out the best among everyone and also ‘forces’ everyone out of their homes.

In the summer of 2012, I was roaming the streets of one of the most beautifully decorated and ornate cities of Europe, Madrid (Spain). Truly, a majestic city. Long days meant sun would set around 10 pm. Before I headed for the famous Tapas bars of Madrid, I decided to relax in the Parque del Oeste, where famous Egyptian temple, Temple of Debod, is also located. This park was laid out by the landscape artist Celedonio Rodriganez.

Life ran at its own pace in this park. Some had come to meet their friends; some had their jogging shoes on. There was a group of college students practicing their music instruments. Elderly enjoyed the setting sun. One gentleman was trying his balancing acts on the rope, while the canines were attempting their own whimsical games. Many had NOTHING to do in the lovely summer of Madrid, except lazing around. I had my task cut-out. Because I had to capture shots for weekly photo challenge 🙂
