I had such great plans for a second gallery last weekend, but then we had unexpected visitors. and I forgot about it! However I must admit I got such joy from their visit, that I don’t feel guilty at all by the gallery delay. Today though I thought I’d squeeze in a few hours this afternoon to curate the 60+ Past Squares, and I am hoping you will all have time over the weekend to visit at least one square in every room. Don’t forget to make yourself a drink or cut a slice of cake before you start looking round the gallery. First though my bonus square of the day, the original photograph is one of my favourites.

An Algarvian Sunrise

This shot brings back such happy memories of when I took it. The challenge was working out how not to fall into the puddles, whilst also getting the camera close enough to capture the reflections! Thank goodness it was very early in the morning, so there were few people around at the time, I must have looked strange.

Once you can draw your eye away from the sunrise, I thought you could might like to meet some brand new squarers and as well as catch up with those who just missed the first gallery.

Wasn’t that a great room to begin your squares explorations. A larger room than usual but there were so many new squarers to highlight as well as squarers who just missed the last gallery. Now let’s take a second look at some regular squarers in our second room.

Isn’t this all fabulous! I hope you were as inspired by the second room as much as the first, and there are so many more brilliant squarers to come in our third room. So do keep exploring, even if it is just to visit one squarer per room.

Olhão da Restauração

Congratulations, you have now explored more than half the room. It is a perfect time (if you haven’t already) to pour yourself a second cup of coffee or maybe even pour a little glass of something before you explore the fifth.

Wow it is a big gallery isn’t it! You’ll probably be delighted to learn it is now time to explore our final room, it also contains many fabulous Past Squares. So I do hope you can make the time to visit at least one Squarer in this final room, and the other rooms this weekend.

I have had so much fun curating this gallery. How have you got on exploring it? Do let me know if you met any new squarers, or if you think there are any squarers I have missed. Your comments keep me energised!

      1. The words seemed to flow with titles yesterday, doesn’t always happen! I think though the huge breakfast of Belgian Waffles earlier had me on a sugar high!

  2. Wow, a gorgeous shot! Where are you headed (or did I miss that while skimming comments?) Safe travels and have a wonderful time. I’m longing to head to France but with my mom not doing so well, it wouldn’t be in the cards anyway at this time.

  4. I have to say…so far it’s been a wonderful experience to take part…not sure now why I didn’t before. I’ve saved this post on my iPhone to read in a comfy spot with a cup of tea later on

  6. Wow, Becky. All your Squarers have been very busy, as have you. I hope you grabbed a cup of tea and a slice of cake before sitting down to curate this gallery. (PS. I also love that photo, it’s a stunner.)

    1. I began the day with a decadent and lenghty breakfast out with a friend, then once home multiple tea breaks and cake to sustain the curator 🀣πŸ₯°

  7. That sunrise with the reflections is stunning. That really ought to be printed out and hung on a wall. I shall try and visit some of the rooms this weekend when the rain arrives! Before that I need to get out in the garden and do some cutting down. Have a lovely weekend Becky. Mum gone home now?

    1. You’re right, I’m so bad at printing them though. Maybe I’ll get organised this winter.

      And thanks you too. Gardening sounds perfect plan before rains appear. I’m packing!

      1. We’ll be wearing the FFP2 masks, and from what I’ve read airplane air filtration systems are really robust so most dodgy bit is probably UK airports!

      2. I think our boosters are due at the end of the month. Personally I’d rather people elsewhere in the world got their first and second jabs before me. Over 80s and vulnerable people should have a booster, but I’m not sure it should apply to over 50s.
