Purple Haze

Purple Haze all in my brain,

Seville, La Noria
lately things don’t seem the same,

Seville, La Noria
actin’ funny but I don’t know why

prado de san sebastian
‘scuse me while I kiss the sky.

Seville, La Noria
~Jimi Hendrix

On the Way in a roundabout way from the train station to Seville Cathedral in 2006 we happened (as we do in our unplanned way) on La Noria (Ferris Wheel) in Prado de San Sebastian, the whole of which was enveloped in a purple haze of Jacaranda blossom.

  1. You are excused. 🙂 This reminds me of the time I landed in LA and during the ride to my host’s home we listened to Howard Stern and he was asking listeners if Jimi really had to say “Excuse me” each time he wished to kiss the sky. 😀

  2. Gorgeous photos, Carol. Those Jacarandas remind me of the last street we lived in in Johannesburg. It always looked so pretty when the trees were in bloom, and even when they dropped, the ground was covered in purple flowers which made popping noises underfoot. 🙂


  3. creative take on the wpc – and the lyrical flow was so nice with the blooms – oh and my favorite shot is that first one – from the reader – there was something about it that made my eyes adjust and then settle in – the color with the clouds – and the framing – cool up view


  4. There’s something to be said for planting long avenues of a flowering tree. I’m used to pink cherry trees or white dogwood trees used this way, but the purple Jacaranda blooms are very eye-catching.
