Jul 03, 2016 – [Sunday] WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Opposites

Barcelona, Spain, taken on August 29, 2011

Perhaps nothing demonstrates opposites better than light and darkness, and shadows are just that – a battle between light and darkness. While it seems that light is the backdrop and the shadow is the main character, without the presence of light, the shadow can’t even make its appearance, and there would be no show for darkness. One of the coolest shadows I’ve seen is that of a horse-riding warrior in a square in Barcelona. A brilliant piece of art, especially during the night!

Apr 06, 2016 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: Night in Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain, taken on April 2, 2016

The area around Plaça d’Espanya, where the National Art Museum of Catalonia (pictured above) is situated, is my favourite place in Barcelona. I visited it during the day five year ago and was able to see its stunning lights and the “Magic Fountain” during my most recent visit less than a week ago. Magnificent!

Feb 21, 2016 – [Sunday] WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Seasons

Toronto, Canada, taken on February 2, 2014

Out of the four seasons of the year, winter is certainly not the one that most Torontonians would look forward to, as snow-shovelling inevitably becomes the national sport. We do get some extreme weather conditions, but that is characteristic of a Canadian winter and strangely, I enjoy it to a certain extent. When I experience Scottish winters with temperatures of -5, complaining how cold and windy it is, I think of the -28 that my friends and family are facing in Toronto, and all of a sudden Glasgow doesn’t seem so bad 😉
