Does something big need to happen for a celebration? Not at all. This post celebrates a village fiesta, and a small geeky milestone.
The Village Fiesta
That time we had dinner in Grazalema, afterwards we went to the main village to hang out in the Fiesta Mayor de Grazalema. To be honest I’m not even sure how to properly define a fiesta mayor. It’s just like a big street party held each year during a certain week or weeks in a town, village, or even just a neighbourhood. I suspect that, unlike other fiestas that actually have a motive, the fiesta mayor usually does not. So as you see, any or no excuse is good enough to decorate the streets, bring out a band, eat, drink and celebrate, well, life.
After being accustomed to a world in which everyone seems grumpy and I always feel like I’m treading on some fuzzy line between what I can and cannot photograph, I was delighted that the local band wanted me to snap pictures of them.
Drinks. Just be merry.
The Small Geeky Milestone
It occurred to me that I wanted to make an animated photo thing. A bit of investigation led to learn that what I wanted is an animated gif. Allow me to present my first ever animated gif:
How awesome is that! Once I inserted it and saw it worked, I did a tiny silly dance waving myself around. A bit like the kids in the photos. Why don’t you also do a tiny dance to celebrate with me? Or just to celebrate life.
Thank you for visiting!
