Dusk and beyond…

Carrer Valldonzella

Happy Monday! I hope you had a restful and fun weekend. I did a fair bit of walking these past few days, during the day, but also at night, and was once again struck, by how beautiful Barcelona is at dusk, and beyond…

Carrer Valldonzella

When night starts falling, there is that space in time, where the street lights are turned on, but there is still sufficient light to see all that’s around us clearly, and that to me, is quite a magical time of the day.

Carrer Ciutat

I love the way doorways are lit up from the inside, making their door grilles all the more evident – some are quite striking, don’t you think?

Pla de la Seu

When it gets darker, and we have to rely on illumination to see, certain things that in daytime we can overlook or take for granted in their daytime guise, start to take on a completely different appearance, creating yet more magic.

Carrer de Sant Francesc

And even when darkness falls completely and illumination is sparse, there is always a point of light to catch one’s eye and bring delight.

Have a great week, everyone! I hope your days and nights are filled with light and magic.
