Photographer's Note

in the week of March 19th (the feast of San José) Valencia honors its patron saint with a spectacular fiesta called Las Fallas. The Fallas are huge paper-maché, cardboard, styrofoam and wooden sculptures which are built by competing teams throughout the year. They depict polititians and well known public figures. They are burned on the final night after a jury has judged them. The streets are decorated with elaborate lights like in this shot. I will post several shots of the Fallas in the coming days.
I have just returned from this exciting fiesta- will be back writing comments asap.
