Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Patterns

We took a vacation in Spain, one thing impressed me the most was the architecture. Whether it was during the occupancy of the Roman Empire or Islamic Conquer to the contemporary design, patterns are easily observed. Here are a few of them.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Fountains

When we went to Spain to celebrate our 20th anniversary in August 2016, we had a treat of watching the water dance in this fountain in Barcelona. I included two photos in this post. The third photo was taken in Portland, Oregon last month, and the last photo is in Yorba Linda, California in front of the President Nixon Library.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Columns and Vertical Line(s)

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.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Architectural Structure, Valencia Spain

When we were at Valencia, Spain, we visited the most amazing, contemporary, and futuristic structures designed by the Spanish architect, Santiago Calatrava Valls. He is a Spanish neofuturistic architect, structural engineer, sculptor and painter. His design is so refreshing compared with the traditional Spanish architecture.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: PORTRAIT VS. LANDSCAPE

“Today you are invited to post a portrait and landscape format of the same scene. You may be surprised at how much different they look and what each one reveals. That’s the only requirement for this challenge.” – Paula at Lost in Translation

Here are my portrait and landscape of the same scene at Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba, Spain.
