Daily Post Photo Challenge – Curves

There is something tragically beautiful about bullfighting rings.  This is the bullfighting ring in Seville, Spain, which is a spectacular stadium with it high, curving arches and bright orange sand.  One can almost imagine the torero in his brightly decorated outfit gracefully guiding the bull with almost dance-like qualities.  So, we chose this photo of the ring for our entry into this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge.

  2. First of all, this is a beautiful picture. It looks very similar to the bullring in Madrid as well. About the same size, perhaps a tad bit smaller. Second, I have to confess that I love the bullfight as a spectacle. Maybe that’s due to my upbringing – I have both Spain and US citizenship and grew up watching the bullfights. It’s not PC to enjoy anymore, outside of Spain, Mexico and a few other places. But for me, it still gets the heart beating …

    It’s a famous dramatic setting and your elegant photo does it honour – we can just hear the music and imagine the pageantry. It’s survived so far, a remnant of our …. less “civilised” instincts? With apologies to aficionados – I used to be fascinated by bullfights in my youth. Actually the best bullfights and most knowledgeable audiences I ever saw were in Mexico City!.

  6. A beautiful image. Love the colours too. I’m glad you took the photo when it was empty, though. 🙂

  7. It looks red and yellow, the colours of España 🙂

    Antibullfighting for the record. The majority of Spanish are these days.
