Seeing pink

Jardins del Doctor Fleming

After yesterday’s blackout (I hope the SOPA/PIPA bills are not passed!) I though a bit of colour might be a welcome idea for today’s post. And as I have been seeing pink everywhere (on other blogs, in magazines and on the streets) I thought I’d take you to see some examples of pink around Barcelona.

Next to a playground, not far from the Cute Suite, in Jardins del Doctor Fleming, a blind wall has been painted in a multitude of colours to brighten up the area, but it’s the pink that jumped out at me – possibly, because pink is not a colour you see often in a city. Or so I thought! When you look for pink, there is actually a fair bit of it to be spotted. Like the lid of a fire hydrant set into the sidewalk on Rambla del Raval…

Plaça de Joan Amades

There is pink to be found as part of buildings too. A school on Plaça de Joan Amades has various decorative elements in a rather pink shade of terracotta, both on its façade and on top of the edges of its roof. Pretty, isn’t it?

Rambla del Raval

Pink can also be seen at a hotel on Rambla del Raval, shining through some curtains, breaking up the otherwise black, reflecting surfaces on the ground floor. And even at the beach, a lone sailing boat has a pink sail which stands out against the early morning haze that turns the sky and the sea into greyish shades of blue.

Tomorrow I’m taking you to the beach for a morning stroll, so put on your comfy shoes and be ready to plaster a wide smile across your face!
