… but still learning new tricks.
I mean on Adobe Lightroom, not the one with the 4 balls and the sardines… Don’t ask.
Photo taken on a Barcelona-bound ferry.

And don’t forget on sunday the City Daily Photo theme day, all about aging.

And for once, here is the original shot:

I know what you did last summer!

Well, maybe I don’t. But I truly wish you were fortunate enough to find yourself a nice place to spend the summer, be it sea or mountain. And for me, AND I REALLY NEED SUMMER RIGHT NOW, RIGHT HERE!

Special message to some good friends of mine in the scorching heat of Western Australia (the hottest day in ages there): winter will be back. In a few months, wont be long now. Lol.


Skywatch Friday

It was a nice Friday afternoon on the Barcelona seafront.

Summertime…

…and the living is easy.

For some anyway. For the others: back to work now.


Blue

Kim’s Water World Wednesday is here.


Beach season…

The beach season opens officially this coming weekend. This means that the following facilities will be available: toilets, lifeguards, police patrols, Wifi, a public library, bars, parties, and so on. Just add sun. Well, the weather is ok right now, 19 degrees today.


Miniature

This is the first ever time I use the miniature technique of photography, for Water World Wednesday. It is basically fiddling with the depth of field.

One of the ways of enjoying Barcelona by the sea, the fast way. I would suggest you to wait and do this during summer, but not right now.


Water World Wednesday

Yeah, makes you want to be on the boat, doesn’t it?

Water World Wednesday, right here.


Just leaving it all behind…

Wouldn’t you sometimes just want to step on a boat/plane/car, and leave everything behind…

Water World Wednesday, right here.


Dive into the light

Skywatch Friday, right here.


It’s Friday!

And it’s Skywatch Friday!


Skywatching…

… on Friday


The boat

Isn’t she pretty?

Water World Wednesday, right here.



She’s big!!!

The Liberty of the Seas, the largest passenger ship ever built! That thing is so huge that I could not get her on one photo, even though I was several hundred meters away, with a 24mm lens. You’ll find some more information about her here.
Just one thing… You want one? You’ll need to fork out 800 million dollars, 550 million euros. Crisis, what crisis???

Anyway, big and beautiful, but not our cup of tea, as we prefer something much smaller.


Hanging out

Nothing really to add. Except that it is for the weekly WATER WORLD WEDNESDAY , and also the NF Waters meme.


Going with the wind

Oh yes! Wish we had the time!


Skywatch Friday

The Tibidado hill, seen from between the hotels on the sea front, near Diagonal Mar.

Waterworld Catalunya

For Skywatch Friday


The good life

Need I say more?

Water World Wednesday


C’est la Catalogne!

Greetings from the lovely french seaside resort of Argeles-sur-Mer, in Catalan Argelers de la Merenda. It is France, but it also still is Catalunya, or Catalogne in French. I like to call the french part of it Northern Catalunya, or Roussillon (in Catalan Rossello) The people here, some of them anyway, speak a very close cousin to our Catalan south of the border.
Confused? Click here!

We’re here to celebrate France’s 14 juillet, or Bastille Day, with fireworks and dancing, yeah!


Barcelona, 8 PM

… and now over to the weather report. It has been a hot day, 35 degrees C. No change for the next few days. It’s summer, folks!

Skywatch Friday.


On the rocks…

Kind of running out of ideas for giving this post a title. What would you call it?
