Barcelona, a photo a day

The diagonal forum

Behind the shopping mall called Diagonal Forum, there is a small fountain. It doesn’t look like much during daytime, but is so much nicer at night.


Blue

Kim’s Water World Wednesday is here.


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.

Kim’s Water World Wednesday meme is here.

Autumn

Autumn has arrived in town, with a big bang: rain, rain, rain. The dry season is truly over. We still have what most Europeans would call balmy temperatures, 23-25 degrees.

PLEASE REMEMBER! Tomorrow is CDPB theme day! The theme is: silhouette. Here is where you can post (or see) it, on the CDBP Theme day blog, specially created for this purpose!

Unusual English word of the day, dedicated to all French: batrachophagous. Check it out, and bon appetit! 


At night on the Avenida…

The white water fountains leading to the magic fountain, for Water World Wednesday.


The boat

Isn’t she pretty?

Water World Wednesday, right here.



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…

Water World Wednesday, right here.

And don’t forget: it’s monthly Theme Day soon! Here‘s the link (not open yet). The theme is: people watching. On your cameras, go! See you all on September 1st!


Are you looking at me?

Water World Wednesday, of course!

As the CDP portal is still down, here is the CDP Facebook page where you can, amongst other things like publishing your latest posts, also vote for the theme of the next, you guessed it, theme day!


Magic shower!

Been a while… It is so hot here than going to the Magic Fountain water, light and music show in the evening, up close, is a very very good idea! Due to the large amount of spray, it’s like a huge outdoor shower, and you can even sing while the music is playing!

Appropriate song of the day…


The good life
