The kiss in Spain
16 October 2012 @ 14:51

       In Spain, we use to say the sentence: "When spanish woman kiss, she always real kiss".And, in fact, it is such important sentence that there is a song about it.That song is named: "El beso en España".Here you can watch the video of this song: (click down here):

Paquita Rico singing "The kiss in Spain"

And this is the lyrics:

En España bendita tierra 
Donde puso su trono el amor 
Solo en ella el beso encierra 
Armonia sentido y valor 
La española cuando besa 
Es que besa de verdad 
Y a ninguna le interesa besar con frivolidad 
El beso, el beso, el beso en España 
Lo lleva la hembra muy dentro del alma 
Le puede dar usted un beso en la mano 
O puede darle un beso de hermano 
Asi la besara cuanto quiera 
Pero un beso de amor 
No se lo da a cualquiera 

La española cuando besa 
Es que besa de verdad 
Y a ninguna le interesa besar con frivolidad 
El beso, el beso, el beso en España 
Lo lleva la hembra muy dentro del alma 
Le puede dar usted un beso en la mano 
O puede darle un beso de hermano 
Asi la besara cuanto quiera 
Pero un beso de amor 
No se lo da a cualquiera 

Es mas noble yo le aseguro 
A de causar la mayor emocion 
Ese beso sin ser puro 
Que va envuelto en una ilusion 

La española cuando besa 
Es que besa de verdad 
Y a ninguna le interesa besar con frivolidad 
El beso, el beso, el beso en España 
Lo lleva la hembra muy dentro del alma 
Le puede dar usted un beso en la mano 
O puede darle un beso de hermano 
Asi la besara cuanto quiera 
Pero un beso de amor 
No se lo da a cualquiera.

 

      I have talked about the famous sentence, because some days ago, I could listen on the radio the interview to a young woman, Photographer, from Cadiz, who has started an original project, last January, in order to beat the record for highest number of kisses; she said she wanted to beat this reord, by the way of the Bicentennial of the Constitution of Cadiz in 1812.She said she wants to finish the record in the special date: 12 of the 12 of the 12 (December - 12 - 2012).

      By the moment, she has collected 400 kisses, but she wants to arrive to more than 2012 kisses.

      Virginia Marin, Cristina Sierra and Enrique Marin, three people earlier this year had an idea: to collect kisses. But why? Because kissing is a positive attitude, show of affection, and it is all very well to deliver, support and collect kisses. But there is something more behind this initiative, its purpose is social, intended to break a record, and also work with an NGO, for example, Children's Village, with this project.

      Virginia is Magán Marin biologist, photographer and artist. Sierra Cristina Casanova is an economist, creative and entrepreneurial. And Enrique Marin is technical architect, creative and community manager. All three agree that the affection is important in difficult times, and kiss often see things differently, or at least help to optimism.
 
      Kisses Collection is an artistic-creative and social, involving the taking of pictures of all kinds of kisses, gathered at street level, with the aim to convey concepts and emotions through the expression of the kiss. Also these pictures could be an informal radiography Spanish society of today. The three different types of search locations and situations that may help fill this radiograph (large cities, small towns or slums, factory, hospital, conservatory, fair, beach ...)
      "We have a challenge: get over 2012 unpublished photographs of kisses during this year 2012. With this we aim to make the largest collection of photographs of kisses in the world," they say, and so far have collected about 400.
Since we felt Discapnet an original initiative and especially great for spreading joy. Here you have the interview with Cristina Sierra and his companions, that we talk more about this project
      How did the idea? When thought "I want to beat the record of kissing photos?".
Surge earlier this year, as a wish a year what we ask for this year?. We want to work together on what we like, do something great, pool our resources, knowledge and talents to create something together, make our passion our employment. A Virginia loves photography and I love to take something new and bold, create, we love to innovate.
 
      On the one hand we wanted to photograph people on the street, record its different types, and on the other hand, we wanted to do our bit to change the defeatist tendencies of today and how better than with love, gratitude, complicity, passion, ...With kisses!. Hence arises asking people to kiss, that approach, and the idea that we would love to collect those moments. And so the adventure begin to create the largest collection of photos of kisses World: WORLD RECORD. Our challenge: 2012 pictures of Kisses, by Virginia photographer Marin, by 12 from 12 to 12:12 h.
      We love new technologies, today is the appropriate channel and global reach everywhere. To this was added Kike, the web manager, who also love the project, contributed ideas enriching. If we do have to do something great for the world, and used to change something that might work better. Convey to the world the message that you can start from scratch and get to something important in the belief that the effort, craftsmanship and passion, these three ingredients, move mountains and are the key to success. That is the important question of attitude and to do things differently and daring works, slope, but it works.
 
Why December 12 for submission?
      This year for us is very important, very significant, and Cadiz ... 2012, so we also beauty in date: 12 12 12.
Have you already done something similar in another country?
      Let us know, No.

      We also plan to go to Madrid, we are waiting for some concrete details and close the final date.
What has been the picture of kissing you have done has touched you most?
      It is very difficult to select a single, every transmit something wonderful and poignant, perhaps the first thing we did in Jerez surprised us most, were the first and our expectations grew in size and depth. But if we have to highlight one each would choose a different perhaps each, although many agree ...
Virginia: The No. 32 (Jerez) "kiss her not to flower." I could not be photographed with his wife because she was sick. I wore the flower for the day of lovers.
Cristina: the n º 54 (Jerez) Ms Cleanser, many years working to support his large family now all unemployed except she was alone, and asks for a kiss-Wish: "Your kiss is for entrepreneurs to do well and that create a lot of work for "their children" and rectified, and says no "to all young people" are the ones that work can lift this country. I burst into tears, and she too, to see those hands so worn and so heartily message.
Kike: The No. 4. (Jerez) Leonor, elderly couple who had 50 years without kissing.
 
What do you want to show or prove?
      The goal of this art project and social, is claiming the value of emotions, specifically the kissing as a means to "spread hope and optimism in a difficult social times and uncertain as the present." Emotion is perhaps the most powerful stimulus transforms social-action.
Virginia Marin (photographer and creative): Sought through photographic art convey that to capture in a photograph kissing're freezing a unique moment full of feelings, turning a two-dimensional image on an element that goes beyond the three dimensions. Behind each kiss is a story, two paths that converge at this point, then magic.
      Cristina Sierra (creative and entrepreneurial) We seek to reflect the social reality that everyone we meet and convey optimism represented collaborative and spreading.
We start from scratch, just our experience, we have created synergies and material resources owned or borrowed. "We provide what we do best and we share the project, with everyone who believes in him and wants to enjoy the experience join infect the world with a kiss. We want to show that when something looks and CREE is created. "
