Photographer's Note

Scene / seen in Spain
in a Madrid parking lot.


Last summer we made a road trip through central Spain and found ourselves arriving in the capital to wrap up the trip. This is what we saw upon our arrival in Madrid, just after we'd parked our car in the underground parking lot near our hotel. We imagine the roads this car must have travelled on. Now, dusty and weary, homesick, at rest in an underground parking space, it collects dust.

Does this car still dream of being driven about town? Would it still recognize the city above, which must have changed a lot since it was left here? Or has it abandonned all hope of ever being driven again?


I must admit I don't like cars much. I own one, basically because I need it to get to work. For me/us holidays and car travel don't go together. We don't like having to follow directions and worrying about places to park, etcetera. During the last two corona summers however, we've been on road trips in Europe: first Germany (2020), then Spain (2021) and we must say we kind of liked it, though.


Just keep travellin'
