  2. Madrid through the eye of your camera is very interesting. Something different from the tourist photos.

  8. Totally confused here, Sophie, until reading the comments. I also never knew you lived in Madrid, then realised the photos were from a visit. You live in the US now? Though for a short while then back to Madrid? Lovely happy fun captures.

  10. Ah, that first is so lovely and romantic, Sophie! Great capture!

    Is that Puss in boots I see in the second? Cute kids there! They sure look alike!

    Hello Minnie! Must be a lot of tourists in your section of town. You see a lot of cartoon characters in NYC, especially around Time Square.

    Wonderful shots of your neighborhood!

    1. Thank you, Debby
      I felt so much loved just by looking at these young lovers around. :)
      Plaza Mayor is most loved not just by people living in Madrid, also is the major spot for tourists, you see these cute cartoon characters all year round.
