I am fascinated about bullfights.
I am mesmerized by the courage required by the matador to get so close to the massive, snorting bull and guide it past him with graceful swirls of his cape.
In his book “Death in the Afternoon”, Earnest Hemingway summarizes how I feel about this sport:
“Bullfighting is the only art in which the artist is in danger of death and in which the degree of brilliance in the performance is left to the fighter’s honor.”Ernest Hemingway
In 2022, I went to Madrid and witnessed my first and only bullfight. I will use this space to post images and thoughts regarding the experience.
More to come!
