Sant Elm Wall, Mallorca #1

Decorated wall in Sant Elm, Mallorca

The story behind this image

On the south western tip of the Mediterranean island of Mallorca lies the seaside town of Sant Elm.

My wife Liz and I spent a few hours there during our tour of the island, wandering round the streets and alleyways under an unusually cloudy sky.

As Liz checked out the shops I hung around outside, whehe I spotted this simple tableau across the street from where I was standing.

The interplay of colours and shapes was just delightful, so of course I had to take a photo or two.

In fact, I prefer this image to the more standard sort of 'postcard' photos that I took down at the beach that day.
