Valentino's


Whether you see it at night with the show of coloured lights or during the day, Valentino's is a unique building for this city.

COUNT DOWN: Tick! Tock! We fly home to Minnesota on Saturday, the 29th.

Very unique, yes! The night view is particularly special.

Two more days of paradise and then... Some nice, cool spring weather up north! Not bad. :)

I love that night shot. That is an amazing building!
It's not spring here yet, but by the time you get home it might be close to a tolerable temperature.
I think that you'll miss that sun, sea, and sand, though :-)

bravo, la photo de nuit avec les lumières est vraiment superbe et très surréaliste
bravo, the night photograph with light is really superb and very surrealist

It's a really wonderful night photo Kate !!!

I'm sorry to read you are going to come back but, at the other side, holidays are great and much more dreamed also because... Holidays.

It certainly is a mixture of styles. I like it at night in those lights. Nice.

The night shot is exquisite! Cram as much as possible into the next two days, lol.

It does look wonderful day or night, I would have to visit it at both times of the day.

beautiful shot!

Hi kate :-)
Wow!! How amazing and magical. I like both shot. The night one is very much fairy like and the other one is reminiscent of the Mauresque architecture.
Thanks for sharing it. It's awsome Kate.

They are both good photos but I love the night shot.

What will you do about your blog when you leave? I hope you carry on :)

Jilly said...

Great night shot, Kate. What a place. I remember the photograph, daytime photograph, before, but hadn't seen it at night.

Beautiful night scene, Kate! Well, sadly, tomorrow your trip must end. We did our best to rid the Twin Cities of snow for you. Tomorrow, or so the weatherboy says, mid 50's and afternoon rain. Well, it ain't the 80's that you were used to, but then again, its better than the snowy alternative. Oh shoot, I said snow.

Welcome home.

What a beautiful building, especially at night! Great photos!!

Kim said...

Ohhhh, I just now found your site and you are leaving! Anyway, this is a beautiful building and I will have fun looking at all of your previous posts! Have a safe trip!

oh, magical, either way, it has such a unique look! Reminds me of fanciful sand castles, but without the fake plastic look of Disneyland!

Really like the night view. The blues are so pretty.

Thank you too, for all your visits to my site. They are much appreciated.

We were in Maz the same time as you were, in the old anchorage next to El Faro. Sailed north on Monday 4/28, a 4-day voyage. My favorite area in Maz is Plazuela Machado, and I walked there from the anchorage a number of times, on my way to the Mercado. Great shots of Valentino's, too!
