My blog- bud Scilla, commenting on the terrifying ordeal I told you about in my last post, made reference to the film “The Good, The Bad & The Ugly”, to the effect that my bravado, machismo and devilish good looks reminded her of a young and somewhat better looking Clint Eastwood, (not quite so squinty eyed and with better hair)….At least that was my reading of her comment.
Now there’s nothing spooky about a bit of female fan-worship, here at Shpics God knows I’m used to it, but what is spooky is where I happened to be on the day she made the comment….
Cortijo Del Fraile……..hidden in the badlands of the Cabo De Gata !
Spooky spooky spooky!!!
I’ll pop an info link somewhere down at the bottom of the post and you can check out a bit of this iconic buildings history, but it was indeed used in “The Good, The Bad & The Ugly”
HOW WEIRD IS THAT?
There are literally thousands of shots of this structure all over the web, and all seem to be from pretty much the same viewpoint (coz its the best), so I’ll apologise straight away for not coming up with anything original, but I will chuck in a black and white, super-grainy, filmy, kinda homage’y treatment for good measure……..Give’em a click, they look loads better!
