La Latina, Madrid


La Latina, Madrid

Captured during the early part of my week-long visit to Madrid. This afternoon was also my first attempt at heading out on a day trip, either to Toledo or Segovia per the recommendations I received from some new friends. Mañana, I’d suggest to myself.

As it would turn out, I’d never make it out of Madrid, and that was ok.

The tree-lined streets with people who filled up the outdoor seating, enjoying their meal and a tinto de verano (like a play on sangria), or the gentle breeze that made its way through Retiro park while I splayed out on my back to read a book was enough and everything for me.

Pictured above is a snap from La Latina, a popular neighborhood for restaurants and bars and nightlife. And for playing hooky from day trips to neighboring cities.

Saturated Saturday is a new photo series highlighting some of my favorite images, with enhanced vibrant colors courtesy of the photo editing apps I like at the moment. These include: VSCO, Instagram, A Color Story. Most photos taken with iPhone 6s.
