How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free (you need to provide email) online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. I am too busy to keep track of partial submissions in different emails and patch them together. Your cooperation is appreciated.

PLEASE READ!: If you use a non-Spanish phone number please type it  exactly as it is dialled from Spain. I am getting complaints from readers who say some provided phone numbers are being submitted with a variety of country codes and are either missing, or have extra, digits. These are unreachable, so you are missing replies.
