Christel from Köln, Germany

Good afternoon Curly,
An impressive scene, which I like very much. I like flamenco. The colors match the main theme of the general view, expressed positively. The picture pleases me very well. Have a nice sunny day, all the best and health incl. your family. Dear greetings from Christel

Adela Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

Are you sure that is flamenco friend? Of course there are those who say that the origin of this dance not to be found in Spain, perhaps in India ... No ... I'm not very knowledgeable ... but I love photography although I'm not very partisan coloring to the areas ... I prefer the color image. In full color and if B / W too ... Just me ... A hug, Adela

Kiki from Ambert, France

The red of the dance and the party catches the eye but I believe that I like even more all the stories which tell behind in this profusion of the characters !
