Travel theme: Night

Gallery

Here’s my try at this weeks theme posed by Ailsa.

This week, the theme is “Night” and the first thing that came to mind was Seville and the performances we witnessed and the smell of jasmine (one of my absolute favorite scents) which seemed especially strong at night in some places.

I loved this mural. Doesn’t it look like the man and the goat have history together the way the man is eyeing the goat so cautiously?

Inside the building with the mural, we watched a wonderful performance.

We never made it into Metropol Parasol, but they really did look like giant mushrooms.

This spot definitely seemed to be more of a local hangout. Anyone could get up and dance.

If you also participated in Ailsa’s theme I would love to see what you chose.

Here’s my response to this weeks challenge created by Alisa.

It took me a while to decide which of my photos represented art to me. I feel like I saw so many wonderful pieces of art while I was in Europe and I couldn’t figure out which to choose!

In the end, I chose a few photos of street art in Paris. They aren’t exactly something you would find in the Louvre or Musée d’Orsay, but I think they capture a beauty and whimsy of their own. Some are downright creepy, but others made me smile instantly. These street pieces all evoked some sort of emotion or thought from me.

Let’s see something that you believe best describes art and why!

Stuff like this was everywhere!

I would love a spaceship and giant bandage on the side of my house.

I had to add this one for the creepy factor.

How cool is this?
