Barcelona Beautiful

 

Those of you who follow me on Instagram will know that we have just returned from a truly memorable visit to the beautiful and historic city of Barcelona.

For my changingpalette followers here are some of our favourite moments, from Antoni Gaudi’s stunning Sagrada Familia cathedral, to his La Pedrera rooftop sculptures and his mosaics in Park Guell, to the glorious paintings of Joan Miro at the Fundacio Joan Miro in Parc de Montjuic, to dinner at the iconic 4Gats restaurant and before leaving the celebrations in the streets on Spain’s National holiday on October 12th.

As you watch the slideshow enjoy the guitar of Edgar Moffatt who treated us to his art as we waited in line for the opening of The Prado in Madrid. (Our Madrid visit to follow).

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Patterns


 
How could I not post these wonderful mosaic patterns from the Basilica San Marco from our recent visit to Venice for this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Patterns

the sky blue twins


 
Out walking on Spanish Banks this morning on this beautiful British Columbia Day these two caught my eye and seemed to express what this holiday is all about. Since this week’s Lens-Artist photo challenge is “Blue” what could be better.
 

Happy BC Day 🇨🇦

Oh Canada

I hope your Canada Day was as special as ours.

How lucky we are to be living in the greatest country on earth.

Happy Canada Day 🇨🇦

heron today, maybe loon tomorrow

 

Oh, the joy of a Sunday afternoon walk in glorious Stanley Park, Vancouver.

all time favorites

This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge is sadly the last from The Daily Post and we have been asked to choose our all time favourites, an almost impossible task after five years of posting regularly to the challenges each week.

Those of you who follow thechangingpalette however shouldn’t be surprised that I would choose these photos from last August’s Photo Challenge: Corner of my beautiful granddaughter painting with me in my studio, on that day perhaps the happiest corner in all the world.
 
      
 
    
 

Thanks to everyone at The Daily Post for a great ride.
 

See you all in the blogosphere.

peonies from heaven encore

 

What could be a better start to the weekend than these gorgeous peony blooms set against the bluest of skies this week.
Happy Friday.
