this past weekend I...


This past weekend I spent two days in Valencia, which is a 3-hour drive from Barcelona, going South. I took many pictures but I would have taken many more had the weather been sunny.... Spain has been everything but sunny during the month of May, very unusual for the season but any raindrop has been more than welcomed. While downtown Valencia I saw the building posted on the left (click to enlarge), which was located near the cathedral. I love to look at the details of such rich decorations and I selected the picture below (of the same building) to be my participation in nothing less but three! memes at once, talk about a multiple-purpose shot!

  10. That's very, very impressive on a building!!!! Oh, I just love to see such things. What a work to get it done!

    Uhum... I wonder if we've got your weather by mistake? *giggles*

    We've had such an unusual wonderful weather and too hot for the end of May month. In the beginning we had the opposite!

    It changes fast, so better to be outdoors as long as it lasts...

  11. Oh, and I know exactly what you mean: I hate to do photo shots when the sun is not shining. No good light and everything looks gloomy and more dull than it is.

  21. Good eye, Mar... as much as I like some of the new buildings because of the reflections they can produce, how can one not appreciate the construction of some of the most decorative old buildings... beautiful!

  28. The bottom picture is enchanting. It looks like a building that I could look up at for hours. Reminds me of the Disney animated-movie "Hercules."
