Sant Elm Window, Mallorca #1

Window and wall in Sant Elm, Mallorca

The story behind this image

In the search for visually appealing and interesting images, I'll often turn away from the pristine tourist areas and take a walk through some of the back streets of an unknown location.

Such was the case here at Sant Elm, on the south western tip of Mallorca, as Liz and I abandoned the seaside promenade and headed just one block back into the town.

As Liz checked out the shops, I checked out the walls, doors and windows and came across this lovely scene in peeling terracotta paint, with a small barred window placed just at the right spot to acting as a focal point for this image.
