Mijas,the nice little Donkey/Jack ass village.

Between Torremolinos and Fuengirola in Andalucia
Spain, there is a nice little village up in the mountains called: Mijas.

A village with many Donkeys (Tourists) narrow streets.. shops restaurants and stunning views towards the Mediterranean Sea.

Deeper in Mijas I found a Church with this front entrence.

(Strange thing.. the Brittish talk about Donkey's and the US about Jack ass ^__^ )

Thanks for popping in folks and in coming time more about the South of Spain .

Sir Tulip,

How are you young man.? ;) :)
Nicely captured and well exposed. Beautiful view.


Beautiful composition.

Very nice composition John!! Jack Ass Village?? HAHAHA! Sounds like where I USED TO live with my ex husband!! AHAHAHAHAHA!
Great comp and I LOVE the white wall!

Hi John,
so wonderful clear forms and a peaceful atmosphere, I like this shot very much.
I don't know Spain, I have to go there sometime - must be wonderful. In these days I'm reading a book about the "Jakobsweg", walking from France to Santiago di Compostella, must be an impressive way.
Thanks for your wonderful post, bye

A magnificent door. I like the little plants on the wall to break the white. Very serene setting fit for a church.

Simple and yet so beautiful. The wooden doors are magnificent giving a superb contrast with the white wall. Great shot. TFS

Hoi John
Mooi zeg, zachte kleuren en het contrast van steen op muur is geweldig. Kwam je ruimte tekort met het bankje

Hi John.

Love the arty feel you have with this, its well presented.


Hoi John,
Zie weer een prachtige compositie van de heer Tulp. Details zoals het bankje in het frame, de onderbreking van de frame lijnen, allemaal prachtig. Hoewel ik het witte frame samen met de foto wel enigszins flets vind, maar dat is een persoonlijke smaak. Het geheel oogt prachtig. Well done my dear friend! TFS.

:) Morgen...

As promised...

Awesome, and neat the way you have got the border working so nicely with the little bench, nice work, the bright lightness works very well.



Hi John,
Very nice compo. overall.I like your POV,DOF and details.Great work.TFS

Ooooh this is a very beautyful image! You have seen it very very good John, a really great framed photo.
Thanks for it.

Good shot. Very clear and bright. Must have been a beautiful mosaic on the door step.
BTW, I think Jackass is a more american term. In Canada we do tend to say donkey, unless we are talking about somebody ;-)
Love the way you that bench to stick out. Well done
:) later

Hi John,
Really superb composition.Bravo!!


Hi bro! Very well done, love the comp here with the different forms and the wall, so white! Good control of light. And the bench coming out of the frame is well done!

Take care, sis :)

ps: many thx for your crit on "Foggy Sunrise on Saint-Lawrence River".


Hello John,
A lovely composition!
Simplicity rules...
Great colours, fine details!
Pablo -

Excellent John. Harsh light and you have a delightful bluish tinge to the pale wall. Well composed, good colour and detail. TFS,
Many thanks for your comment on
Cookery Nook

Hallo John,
Dein Bild strahlt so eine herrliche Ruhe aus, man möchte sich auf die Bank hinsetzten und den Orgelspiel zuhören der aus der Kirche kommt, ein fantastisches Bild mit schönen Farben und super Details, das mir sehr gefällt.
Schöne Grüsse

Hola John.
Good looking picture of that wall.
Very well captured.
Sure you had a great time down there.

Nicely composed elements. Bringing part of the tree in on the left balances the compo. Nicely framed with part of the wrought iron bench protruding over the edge, which seems to be a trademark of yours...
I can't believe how pristinely clean this shot appears: almost looks like a dutch housewife had just swept the area, chasing every little distraction out of the shot...

The tree looks a little strange (maybe you could take it over the frame, too) but I love those small pots hanging on the wall.
Great compo my friend.

stay well,

Hi John,

I like the strong contrast here! Simple but yet eye catching!
The framing suits it perfect too!

Very well seen & composed!

Hi John,
Nice shot with excellent composition.
Great work.

Hi John!

I love this, It is so simple and perfectly balenced. Relaxing and a treat for the eye. The jackass village? I like it. LOLOL

TFS and good to see you again!

Hello john,

Visual, big beautiful capture here!

Very beautiful the composition.

Clean and simple: a capture of a quiet morning. I love the textures of house, bench, pavement and door. TFS
