This week I have came across this shot in my archives. It was taken back in 2009 during a weeks vacation in Salou, Spain. One of the days we decided to take a trip in the ancient town of Tarragona and go exploring. It was the last holiday myself and the wife had before the kids came along, Hazel was probably four or five months pregnant at the time, which probably explains why she refuses to join me on any of my Ruin hunts! I took a series of shots around Tarragona on my Sony Cybershot, it was just a 4mp point & shoot but was a good little camera in its day. You can check out these ‘holiday snaps’ Here. But be warned they are just holiday snaps, I barely knew how to turn on a camera back then. 🙂
This Particular shot was taken on what remained of the city walls. After removing the annoying time-stamp from the shot, I made a slight crop to remove the unwanted background and then added my usual mono conversion. Tarragona is a really interesting place, once an ancient Roman town. there are many remains from these times including a mini Colosseum right on the beach. Perhaps I may look at some of the other shots taken here and see if they can be Re-worked.
Well thats the Re-work for this week, hope to see you all next Wednesday for another image taken from the archives.
