Welcome to the Future in Valencia

Walk through the grounds of the City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia and you will think your on the set of a Logan’s Run (yes I’m dating myself) or Blade Runner (except much brighter).

Far away from the beautiful old town is Valencia’s most important modern tourist destination. The complex houses a planetarium; an IMAX theatre; an Aquarium; a botanical garden; a science museum; an Opera house and a few other surprises. The buildings themselves and the grounds are spectacular and well worth the visit.

Painted Pier

A little something from Barcelona to take you into this hot, long weekend. Happy Canada Day and to my American friends Happy 4th of July.

La Rambla

Everyone told me it was touristy…they were right. I was told it was crowded…correct. I was warned that the restaurants and stores were expensive…yup. But to go to Barcelona and not take a stroll on La Rambla now that would be a missed opportunity. Everyone should experience it at least once.

Barcelona Bicycle

I know it’s been awhile since I’ve written a blog post and I apologize for that. Life is busy as I’m sure most of you can attest too. I’ve just returned from a wonderful 2 weeks in Spain and Portugal and if you’ve been following me on Instagram and Facebook you probably already know that.

Some of you may also be aware of my love of searching out and finding lovely bicycle scenes when I travel (it’s a thing what can I say). I thought it only fitting that as I start sharing my images of Spain that by first one should be a bicycle shot.

The Sands of Time

The sands of time cannot be stopped years pass whether we will them or not, but we can remember…….what has been lost may yet live on in memories, that which you will hear is imperfect and fragmented yet treasure it for without you it does not exist.

Global Warming

I was envisioning this, as the final outcome for this image, when I shot it but I just wasn’t sure it would work. This was taken in Page, Arizona as we were waiting to be picked up by our guide to see the slot canyons.
