Church tower on the bay redux


From the department of coincidences…

After I posted Marjorie Grigonis‘s lovely photos from her trip to the south of France and Barcelona I got an email from Caroline Furr, a mutual friend and Philadelphia artist who previously lived in Barcelona for many years. The email was brief. It said “a harmless past,” and it contained the image of a painting of a church with a tower that is the same church on the bay pictured in Marjorie’s photo from her post. As Caroline put it in her email, it’s “an older view of a favorite spot.” I just love this coincidental church going by friends memorialized lovingly in two different ways.
