Pix+Video that need more than a dedicated page...
This is where the big stuff resides, in one location.
Firepit video and Holiday Ideas, Moors & Christians parades and dazzling costumes - festivals, fiestas of Elche are celebrated over a few weeks each year. Styles from Cuba, Las Vegas in Venetian splendour, wedding bliss in the Maldives, Spanish decor with Gaudi-esque mosaics, Mexican trellis, Caribbean pool and thatch? Holiday ideas are plentiful and all around us.
So far we have:
- Elche Festival 2010
- Inspiration: building your own firepit
- Holiday Ideas - a range of pictures taken on holiday that maybe we can make use of
Elche Festival 2010
It's a two-week extravaganza of of stylised Moors+Christians parades, a crazy parade (charanga), Elche-wide Arroz con Costra competition, i.e. a Spanish paella with a souffle top, plus a large one that can feed 2000, tapas and beers in the central park, fireworks during the day plus a half-hour fireworks display in the centre of Elche which is more like a war zone, and then to top it off with a Vatican-sanctioned and UNESCO recognised medieval play in the city Cathedral over a whole weekend. And lots of food and wine.
These photo sets are separated according to date:
- 08-August (this one to the right)
- and the final weekend 14+15 August
Weekend 14 & 15 August
The 'firepit' idea had a few beers behind it when the construction started...
Inspiration from what we find on our travels...
Pix from holidays/travels that pique the interest.... hmmm, what would we do with this? Either reproduce it in a smaller or larger fashion, use some part of it, or incorporate it into some larger piece of work.
