Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: #21 Splash!

My husband and I went to Spain in the summer of 2016 to celebrate 20th anniversary. The tour covered Madrid, Toledo, Seville, Cordoba, Granada, Valencia and Barcelona. We were in Barcelona on the day of anniversary. Most of the restaurants were open for dinner late in the evening but we preferred early dinner. After walking on the street for half an hour, we found a restaurant serving pizza. We had a bottle of wine and a large pizza.

The tour guide took us to a water show at night and we watched a spectacular show with beautiful splashes.

Lens-Artist Photo Challenge: #13 Look Up

When I saw Patti’s prompt for Lens-Artist Photo Challenge: #13 Look Up. I know exactly what photos I have for this post.

Among all the countries we’ve traveled, Spain is one country where I spent a lot of time “looking up.” I love the Spanish architecture in general and I was most impressed with the architecture of cathedrals. When we visited the Great Mosque of Córdoba, I was walking with my head tilted, looking up and taking photos to an extent that I lost my tour group. I was panic because that place is enormous. The tour guide took the group to go from one Chapel to the other. Fortunately (most of the time), I could locate my 6’4″ husband. I quickly rejoined the group.

It was fun finding the photos from my Spain trip for this post.

In August 2016, my husband and I traveled to Spain for our 20th Anniversary. We joined a tour to visit Madrid, Toledo, Seville, Cordoba, Granada, Valencia and Barcelona. I did several posts about our travel right after we came back. I love the architecture in Spain. For this post, I show several photos of columns and vertical lines.
