A Park in Barcelona

I just got back from my trip to Spain and France!  I thought I would begin by showing some of the beautiful tiles from Park Güell in Barcelona.  It was a challenge getting there because it involved a walk up a steep hill that took me a while to complete.  The park was delightful and quite spacious so it didn’t seem too crowded.  There were also plenty of benches so it was possible to find a place to sit and enjoy the surroundings.  The tiles were both original and colorful and the park was a cheerful place on a sunny afternoon.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern

There were lots of examples of patterns in Lisbon, Portugal.  First I noticed this building with colorful tiles, and as I was walking I saw a pattern in the sidewalk.  Although different they were both very interesting.

I also noticed the pattern on a rooftop (and the brick wall) when I was looking out on the city from St. George’s Castle.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the Details

When I was in Rome I climbed the steps of St. Peter’s Basilica to the top for a view of the city.  Along the way I stopped and saw these tiles.  After taking a picture of one of the scenes I thought it would be interesting to focus on one of the corners to show the tiles in detail.
