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.


The faun?

Another busker on Plaza Catalunya, near the fountains? Or an escapee of Greek mythology? Pan means bread in Spanish, by the way… 😉

More watery photos here, if Kim has time enough to activate the meme on her holidays home, in the Philippines.

And happy spring everybody, the astronomical spring starts today in the northern hemisphere, at 12AM Spanish time!

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.


Boy toy?

Probably.

Isn’t she pretty?

Hanging out

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


It’s hot and thirsty weather

So, what can you do, when you’re a dog. You can either lay in the water, or drink it. Or both of course. Happy dogs, wish I could have done the same. I mean lay in the cool water…

Splash, rippling, it’s gone


Water World Wednesday

In 1977, our local catalan architect Ricardo Bofill was asked to develop a new district in the french city of Montpellier. He designed Antigone in a striking greek neo-classical way, with huge columns, pilasters, pediments, etc. Of course, there are quite a few statues inspired by greek mythology. One of them is Poseidon, god of the sea and of earthquakes, making the waters rise.

I just realized that today was actually Wednesday… Was sure it was Tuesday. So, I will post this straight away.

This is for Kim’s Water World Wednesday.
