Photographer's Note

Cuenca - Mythical, magical, mighty!

In Cuenca I absolutely wanted to take a blue hour picture of the Casas Colgadas.
Im not so happy with the quality of this photo and the sharpness is far from good. I had no tripod and the wall where I put my camera on was very irregular in shape.

But looking at my pictures I find that these 'hanging houses' look much more magical and impressive while surrounded by the blue hour-sky than during the day. I also enjoy the colour contrast very much.

The origin of these hanging houses is uncertain. They existed already in the 15th century and have been refurbished several times.

They have been used as individual homes and as council houses. Today one is a museum and another one a restaurant.

Anyway they belong to the most symbolic buildings of the city of Cuenca.
