I had to go to Madrid last Friday to renew my passport at the Polish consulate 
there, something that must be done in person. But thanks to the high-speed 
train that covers the 440 km in a bit over 2 hours, it is perfectly possible to 
have a full day in Madrid without spending the night there, and so I availed 
myself of the opportunity to spend the day visiting various photo exhibitions 
going on in the city as part of the huge annual PhotoEspaña festival. Despite 
the heat, I managed to visit 6 exhibitions. The highlights were the exhibitions 
of photographs of Picasso’s life by David Douglas Duncan and other 
photographers, and the French artist ORLAN (real name: Mireille Suzanne 
Francette Porte) at the Círculo de Bellas Artes (where I also had an excellent 
lunch). I have presented the images in chronological order, starting with my 
arrival at the Chamartín station in the morning and ending at the same place in 
the early evening, just before I boarded the train back to Alicante. The 
gallery is here:


WARNING: the works by ORLAN are highly NSFW.

As always, comments and critique are welcome and appreciated.
