Antigua’s colors, post #100


Antigua’s colors, originally uploaded by rudygiron.

Nuno suggested that we should always look up, beauty is on every direction. That is exactly what I did for this shot; although it lacks the beauty that Nuno is giving us in July 2006, it serves to show you the color and quality of light at sunset, as well as you can see the wood beams and roof tiles that are emblematic of Antigua’s architecture.

This photo also represents the 100th entry in this blog since May 1st. It is not exactly 100 days, but I posted several pictures on the first day to get the feel for the design and to have a slide show of the photos I was going to be posting. If you click the slide show link, you can see all the photos in about 5 minutes.

At this milestone I asked myself if I am not being too wordy, this is a photolog after all, and maybe nobody reads or cares for the long captions anyway. So, I decided, unless you tell me otherwise, to have short and brief caption from this point forward. I thank the 9,521 visits people have made to this blog; I am close to reaching the 10,000 visits milestone, which will probably happen before August 1st. Please, come back often, I promise to be brief and I will put more effort into the quality of the images.

    Congrats on the 100th!

  • Sin duvida, los mejores cores que ví hoje, hasta ahorita, en una foto o en la realidade – demasiado trabajo! Mis saludos e felicidades para el gran 100!

  • congratulations on NO.100 and looking forward to more beautiful and colorful photos. I’ve really enjoyed your blog!

  • Your photos are absolutely great! I especially like the one from yestarday, the 27th July!

    greetings from Katowice, Poland (new to daily photoblogging) 🙂

    Congrats on your #100 Rudy.

    Well, maybe I am strange (OK, yes, I know I am) and I do feel a special “twin town” relationship with Antigua, because of our shared architecture, Saint and all, but I REALLY enjoy reading all the history, geography and little facts you give.

    My posts are very often far too wordy too, and it is more work, but I guess people can skip the reading if they want to.

  • On my sitemeter stats i saw lots of UFO’s landing from Antigua, i had to check why and who, the guilt is of course my friend Rudy:), you really liked my photos from july but please don’t say yours lack in beauty against mine, you don’t want to be a liar.
    I decided to post with less words since the beggining, to much information could be boring and time is short for all, the blogger and the reader.
    I will give you congrats on the 1000th! 😀

  • Congratulations on your 100th post. Your hooked now and will post for at least 265 more. I really enjoy Antiqua.

    Congratulations! I enjoy your photos a lot.

  • I thank all of you for your kind words. You are the fuel that keeps me going. I also enjoy the emails people send me. Have a great day!

    Hi Rudy, I am the mother who wrote you about how I looked at your photos every day while my son was away in Antigua. He is back home now 🙂 but I still look at your photos every few days because they are so enjoyable. I just wanted to say that I have always enjoyed your captions as well, and don’t find them too wordy! Your words convey a sense of place as well as the pictures. Thank you for sharing them.

  • Pamela and Lillian, I have decided to continue posting photos with larger captions because you asked. I receive some emails from people asking for the larger captions as well. Besides, I notice the most visitors come to AGDP looking for more information about Antigua and not just the visitors. And just like Pamela said, people can skip the reading if the want to. I thank you both for the encouragment to continue to write more.

    Thank you Rudy, I shall certainly contunue to read your commenaries, because I’m learning stuff.

    I know there are some days when one does not need to say a lot, others when there really is a story behind the shot and, like you’ve found, it is potential tourists who will be looking and can really appreciate that information. The search data I collect for my site confirms this too.

    There is also the fact that I also used to work for English language newspapers and magazines here, so I’ve spent over a decade collecting knowledge, links, resources, etc.

    And I’m noticing that there are some enourmous paralels between Antigua and Tenerife. You even have the volcanos too, as we do. Whenever you post something that is particularly relevant, I actually can’t help but link to it. The world is connected already. 🙂
