These pictures of arches are from around the Plaza Mayor in Madrid. The actual reason that I took some of them was to remind me of which way I entered the plaza so that I wouldn’t get lost! Many times when I travel I become so interested in seeing everything that I forget to notice which way I walked to get there. To keep from getting lost I’ll take pictures of street corners, pedestrian signs and unique buildings or landmarks so I can retrace my steps later. It works quite well and I end up with some interesting pictures of subjects other than the expected ones. I also took some of these pictures simply because I liked them and they are not just reminders of where I had walked.
This is one of my souvenir pictures from Madrid.
