Barcelona, a photo a day

An award

Well, we got an award yesterday, from the Caffeinated Globe. Thank you very much, you have no idea how happy it makes us!

Now, the rules say:
List 10 things that make you happy, try to do at least one of them today and Tag 10 bloggers that brighten your day.

In no particular order, except for number 1:

1/ My wife Mandy.
2/ Cooking. I love cooking, makes me feel good.
2/ Warm weather. Fed up with the wet winter we had here lately.
3/ Making a difference.
4/ Taking pictures!
5/Meeting all of you nice people since I started this blog 301 days ago!!!!!!
6/ This is this blog’s first award, and it makes us really happy!
7/ Watching a good movie.
8/ Chocolate!
9/ Living in Barcelona.
10/ A good book.

10 bloggers that brighten my day… How to choose only ten. Well, once again in no particular order:

Leif, from Eagan, in cold Minnesota
Leia, Cezar and their cat Luna, in Luxembourg
Dina, in my good old and dear Yerushalayim
Marie in Montpellier . She’s got a very nice new header.
The best photo-poet this side of the galaxy, VP in Livorno
Arabesque, in Manilla
Hilda, also in Manilla
Priyanka, in our old home Delhi
Gunn, in icy Stavanger
And finally, last but absolutely not least, Juan Carlos, in beautiful Barcelona. One fantastic photographer!!!!!

Well, this is done. And I suddenly feel quite empty. What about him, what about her, what about them??? So many more people I could add on this list. Guys, you know who you are, thank you from the bottom of my heart!

  5. I am happy and honored to be called a sweet friend to the two of you — thank you so much! Although to tell you the truth, it's been very easy. 😉

    Congratulations on receiving the award too! Happy is definitely how I feel whenever I visit, so I think it's well deserved! You've also made me want so badly to be able to visit Barcelona…

    And I just realized that you cheated — you have two #2s! Heehee.

  12. Felicidades Rob and Mandy por vuestro merecido premio, sois unos bloggers y fotogtráfos de 1ª categoria.
    Gracias, me hace mucha ilusión el premio, pero si he de ser sincero lo que de verdad, de verdad me ha gustado ha sido la dedicatoria de “gran fotográfo” me ha llegado al corazón.
    Besos y Abrazos para los dos.
