Relax

relax weekly photo challenge wordpress

Honestly, no person in this world knows how to Relax better than a puppy. Every time I see Mango sleeping or just chillin’ somewhere around the house, makes me want to do the same thing.

He just turned 10 months and his behaviour is changing so much. He is more relaxed now and just wants to be pet and hang out with us. We cuddle for the first time this weekend too! In general he helps me relax so much.

Whenever I’m feeling anxious or stressed, I just go and sit with him or take him for a walk and that helps me so much. That’s why I immediately thought of him when I saw the theme for this Weekly Photo Challenge.

Looking for treasures

A while ago I mentioned I was taking part in a photographic treasure hunt started by Venezuelan photographer Jackie Rueda.

Shadows

At the beginning of summer she proposed 12 different subjects:

  1. A street artist
  2. Shadows
  3. A gate
  4. The color yellow
  5. A bird
  6. Love
  7. Speed
  8. Steps
  9. A stolen (a photo you take of a stranger without him/her noticing and without their permission)
  10. Something written on the floor
  11. A puddle
  12. A bell tower

The point of the activity was to make you go out of your house and roam the city looking for these 12 treasures! I completed the task and I want to share my findings with you:

Barcelona’s Treasures

Taking part of this activity made me go out of my house when I usually would’ve stayed in. It made me really see in order to find the treasures.

 

Three years of blogging and then…!

WordPress has happily reminded me that today, three years ago I registered and started my blogging adventure.

As soon as I realised that, I knew it was blogging time! But what should I talk about on my WordPress blogger anniversary?

About the past? About the three years I’ve been blogging? Mmm… could be.

Then I thought that, even though the past is extremely important to shape who we are going to be in the future, I decided I wanted to celebrate the present.

And then…

….I blanked. I stopped and found myself looking at the nothingness and my mind entered in a very complicated vortex of life questions. What am I celebrating? I’m doing right now what makes me happy? Why am I sitting here right now? What do I really want to be doing? What have I donde these past three years?

*Sigh…

I really don’t know! So, for now all I’m going to do is share a few compilation of photos I’ve taken during this three years and leave the important life questions for another time.

All of these images represent and remind me of a specific time of my life. They all have a story  behind them and blogging has helped me keep those memories in full color for all this time.

Happy blogging, everyone!

 

Numbers

This is the façade of the Teatro Poliorama in Barcelona. It was opened in 1899 and functions as a theater since 1982.

Every day this clocks says hello to me from the windows at work. Every time I see it, it makes me think about all the other people it has greet all over these years. And when I hear about this week’s Photo Challenge, I thought about photographing a clock (where all the numbers are).

What better clock that one thats been around since 1899?
