Nice picture, Peterpb; (and that's no bull). i like the ol' masonry and the history etched upon it, the lush greens and moody grey sky too.

Not sure about the 'angry' bull - he looks half asleep ;)

Hi Stacy, Thanks for your nice words here, but I'm not sure the bull would agree! You have commented on the old stone wall, well there is a very narrow gap in it, which was put there for exactly this reason, and put to good use by a group of American tourists and myself on this occasion. If he wasn't up for a fight, the wall wouldn't have been in the picture!!

Best Wishes Peter

relieved that you cleared the 'gap' unscathed :)

p.s.: the wall 'makes' the picture for me.

Thank you my dear Füsun,

yes, an angry bull indeed. As Stacy says, he liked the wall for it's artistic merit, I liked it for keeping away from this bull! An unexpected surprise!

Love peter XXXX

Thank you Gaelle,

The bull wasn't that bad, he soon left to find his lady friends.

Best Wishes Peter

Hello Piero,

Thank you so much for your visit! The bull was angry, I don't know if he liked his portrait being taken!

Best Wishes Peter
