Marianne from from East of Málaga has challenged us to find multicoloured photos. See what she has done.
I immediately thought of our parliament houses during this year’s centenary celebrations. Yep, the capital of Australia is celebrating its one hundredth anniversary this year; a hundred years ago, this city wasn’t here. There are lots of events in the celebration; one of them was a week where the major institutions were lit with coloured lights, like this:
And unfortunately, like this:
This one was much more tasteful:
Marianne’s East of Málaga is a great blog where you’ll find a lot of information about Spain. She has asked for challengers to point to a couple of other good blogs; lately I’ve commented on Dennis Aubrey’s blog about Romanesque churches in France, and a blog by Cobbies69, a bloke who lives in New Forest, England, and writes about sixties music and about the history of his region.
I thank my husband for taking these photos. I took some that night, but his are better.

Fabulously multicoloured. The lights look wonderful but the buildings still seem to be a bit staid, don’t they?
It takes some years to discover what’s beautiful about buildings like the ‘national institutions’; I’ve grown to love them as part of the scenery around the lake. I’m glad you liked the colours!
Lovely photos, Trish.
I’m sure a lot of people will be surprised to discover that Canberra is the capital city of Australia as they probably expect it to be Sydney or Melbourne.
I managed to make to Canberra on our recent trip Down Under, but only as a result of being diverted on a flight from Melbourne to Sydney to refuel!! Don’t ask!!
Thanks for sharing links to two blogs you enjoy visiting. I’ll HOP over there right away.
Great pictures are they real painting on the walls or just lights, either it is very effective.. and thank you Trish so much for the mention and pingback..a friend indeed,,,:) question ,,am I expected to do anything,, is it a challenge?? excuse my denseness..
Thanks. They were lights shone on the buildings for a week, after 8pm. The graffiti looked so real that I felt uncomfortable, as though someone had trashed an iconic building! The photo challenge required mentioning two blogs I like. I picked yours, but you don’t have to do anything.
The graffiti one is a bit unfortunate but I love the others Trish
Thanks Jo. I don’t like the graffiti either; it’s bad taste. I’m surprised it was permitted.
It wasn’t even really good graffiti. Weird if you ask me.
I like the top photo, very stately.
Personally, I can’t relate to the light-graffiti, I see too much of it for real. I like real street art, but not the scribblings, that’s just vandalism.
Thanks for your comment. I agree that graffiti shouldn’t have been used, not even temporarily.
