I noticed that I have 3,764 pictures on my iPhone of Barcelona, taken over three years. With no trips planned there (or anywhere else) for the foreseeable future, I’ve enjoyed scrolling through them and imagining I’m walking around the city. I’ve picked a few at random for Cee’s Challenge this week: Half-circles, Arches and Domes. The Gothic majesty of the Cathedral roof: 2. The clean … Continue reading Half-Circles, Arches and Domes
During the period of very necessary lockdown and now restricted movement, we’ve taken a lot of walks from the house along village lanes. Living in the countryside there is always something new to see; things changing by the hour, by the day, the month or the season.

The terrace of the Gunpost Bar in Valletta is self-described in this sign as ” The Most Beautiful Spot”. Having sat there on many occasions gazing across the harbour which it “guards” I would agree. As part of the ancient fortifications of the city , dating back many centuries, it was most recently used as a Gunpost in WW2. My father was in the RAF … Continue reading Maltese Monochrome: Signs
Let’s go and find out what’s in the barn……. On a walk last week in the Borrowdale Valley, the track up to this farm looked interesting. I could see a barn at the top with what looked like………. ………..Yep! Washing hanging up to dry. There was a lot more to see around the corner, but that’s for another post.

According to Wikipedia there are now more than one billion bicycles in the world. And not one of them is mine! ( When I retired I bought one. I fell off three times as I kept forgetting to put my foot on the ground when I stopped and just slowly keeled over. Ouch!). I do like to photograph them though, especially if I see one … Continue reading One Billion Bicycles!
