Photographer's Note

I know what says the TOS about this kind of photos.

But let me say why this photo.
A few days ago I was in Burgos and I saw inside the San Juan Monastery (I think that it was the name) a kind of exposition.
Was very fun.



All Burgos was plenty of flowers.
The first industry of this little city is the turism and its cathedral the main factory.
But the city hall thought that could be interesting give a little present to Burgos.
What kind of present?

There was a campaign called Burgos, ciudad de las flores (Burgos, city of the flowers). This campaign wanted make a good promotion of this city.

There were flowers everywhere, but not only flowers.
Inside the monastery and also inside another historical buildings and gardens there were musics.
And that was nice.

Some people in the city didnt like the campaign and the city hall changed the name (Burgos ciudad paisaje/"Burgos landscape city"). Even there was angered people.

But, I am sure that was a good idea.
Many people of Burgos began to walk searching the monasteries, palaces, gardens or buildings with musics, also searching the squares or streets. And colorful flowers everywhere.

The main square had clothes made with flowers!!

Then, the people said: this is ugly. And, even if it were true, all the people talk about the streets and squares of Burgos and visit them.

Only a problem: out of the city no one had any notice or new about the slogan Burgos ciudad de las flores.


But still I havent said why the rose.
Inside the San Juan Monastery there were two young and pretty musics (perhaps the 21th of July I will post some photos of them). And also inside the monastery there was an exhibition of... BONSAIS!!!.

Thats fantastic. Burgos, the old Burgos, a new center of fresh and new culture.
Even you could vote your prefer bonsai (tomorrow I will post as WS some bonsai).
And between the bonsai... the lonely rose.




And another reason for post this photo is that just today, a rose was an important element of an exercise that Ive done in the postgraduated course that I am doing.

I hope you like it.
