MM 4-19 A Narrow Street in Santiago

This narrow street just off the Camino is about a block from the hotel where we stayed during our three-day visit to Santiago de Compostela last May. It’s called the Rua das Animas and it ends around the corner at a little church called the Capela de Animas in Galician. (It’s full name in Spanish is Capilla de la Cofradía General de Ánimas). This photo will be my entry for Leanne’s Monochrome Madness Challenge this week.

Rua das Animas. O Pozo is one of a half-dozen bars within a block of our hotel whose patrons partied in the streets until five o’clock in the morning on two of the three nights we stayed in Santiago.

From here it’s just a couple of short blocks to the plaza at the top of the hill and then pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago walk down Rua da Acibecheria to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela and the end of their pilgrimage across northern Spain.

Australian photographer Leanne Cole hosts the weekly Monochrome Madness Challenge. Drop by Leanne’s website on Thursdays (Wednesdays in North America and Europe) to see what she and other photographers from all over the world are doing in monochrome these days.

    I feel the monochrome suits the narrow street and gives it added character.

    Super shot with great depth, my friend!

  4. Patrons partying until 5am (and the fact that you know their quitting time) – did you get any sleep? This is my favorite shot of your trip so far! 🙂
