what killed the dinosaurs?

In this guy's case, it seems that random vandalism was the cause of extinction... although I'm not sure it's vandalism if the target is graffiti to start with! All I know is that I'm not sure why random ugly tags are left up for months but this harmless little, ahem, 10 foot carnivore got partially dismantled. I'm just glad I made it out with my camera to get what was left of him. Dinosaurs aren't fully extinct yet in Barcelona however, I've definitely seen a blue triceratops or two around...

In other news, Spring has sprung. The weather is amazing around here at the moment!

Fun dress Emily! So lucky to have great weather, spring is still fairly scattered here. Lots of rainy gray days with spurts of sunshine. Have a good weekend!

Emily, this dress is beautiful, I loved the colored socks!
My son loves dinosaurs, we have many here at home!
A shame that vandals destroy a work so beautiful ...
Here in Brazil we always see this beautiful place too.
Spring is coming to you and the cold is coming to us.
I love the photos from your blog!
One day I hope to meet Barcelona, ​​I know it is a
the most beautiful city in Europe.
Kisses and a great weekend to you

aw that's too bad, it was a nice random work of art. around chicago we have those kinds of paintings slapped up on random building walls too and it's always so fun to run into one!

i love how you paired those colored tights with the look, it really makes everything pop!

I laughed with the dinosaur story!Is it street art or vandalism? It seems to me as a form of art and one that makes my mood :)

what a shame about the dino! I love happy street art like that. I love how natural and full your hair looks here & that dress is always great on you. Thanks so much for your comment on my photos btw, that really made my day because I was being critical and worried to post them with so many real photographers out there. And no, I am happily done w/ auditing that class and don't plan on continuing other than improving my digital photography. I'm sure it has to do with my current state of mind, but the dark room gave me an unpleasant feeling.
