"Boots of Spanish Leather" is a ballad written and performed by Bob Dylan, recorded in New York City on August 7, 1963.It is a classic Dylan tale of two lovers, a crossroads, and the open sea.In just four minutes, Dylan creates two richly layered and dynamic characters, each reckoning with the messy emotions of young love coming to an end.And it is surely one of Dylan's most open and vulnerable songs.
Listening to "Boots of Spanish Leather", I imagine a young couple out for a day in Madrid. They are looking for something fine as they stroll through the markets, the cafes, and down the great boulevards. They they stop for a drink and a meal at one of the terraces. Finally, the day comes to a sad end, and they realize that it's time to part. So, for this series, I present a number of photos taken during a single day in Madrid.
