We enjoyed another couple of days in the Borrowdale Valley in the Lake District this week.
I took these pictures on the walk from Seathwaite to Styhead Ghyll. There is a sign in Seathwaite proclaiming it to be the wettest place in England….but hey….there was no rain that day and the sun came out later.
This is my post for Cee’s Weekly Which Way Photo Challenge. Why not click on the link and see posts from fellow bloggers around the world.
Manchester’s most characterful, independent district is a jumbled network of streets to one side of Piccadilly Gardens – once home to busy textiles warehouses and even the occasional umbrella factory. Now, the red brick buildings with their New York-style fire escapes are regularly used in film sets, and the streets are bursting with independent cafés, shops, bars, and cultural hotspots.
The Northern Quarter has become a destination in its own right, with the laid-back, bohemian vibe during the day transforming at night into teeming pavements of people in search of good food, craft beer, pop-up events and live music. – Creative Tourist
We’ve just come back from a wonderful trip to the Catalonian city of Barcelona where we were lucky enough to bag a hotel right in the middle of the Gothic Quarter.
Barcelona must be one of the most vibrant cities in the world. Art and design and colour are everywhere. From the amazing architecture of Antoni Gaudi for which the city is most famous to this quirky bench in a side street.
I’ve come back with enough photos on both camera memory cards and iPhone to keep me happily playing around with them for months. In fact, right now I’m a bit overwhelmed by the sheer number of images that I haven’t got beyond looking at them and mentally retracing my steps through the city. We’re already planning a return visit.
I think this bench is sufficiently oddball for Cee’s Challenge this week. What do you think?
