ticket to ride

 

 

 

The Bright Nights Christmas Train ride in Stanley Park, Vancouver is always one of the highlights of the Xmas season and all tickets sold go to support the BC Burn Fund, which partners every year with the Vancouver Park Board to present a truly magical event as you can see.
 

 

Special thanks to the BC Professional Fire Fighters and all the volunteer groups who spend countless hours making it all possible.

two more magical mornings

Vanier Park, Vancouver – Tuesday 4.12.18

Fishermans’ Wharf, False Creek, Vancouver – Wednesday 5.12.18

Nothing like a little magic with which to start the week. This morning’s sunrise illuminated my favourite willow tree on Kitsilano Beach that has featured in so many posts on thechangingpalette over the past few years. Definitely another one worthy of sharing.

Happy Monday

El Arco de Santa Catalina, Antigua, Guatemala

Sending Happy Thanksgiving wishes to family and friends across the border having just returned from Guatemala, about which more to come.

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 🇨🇦
