Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #83 – Future

It’s a small detail in this photo, but you can see the Pride flags waving proudly above the Liffey in Dublin, Ireland.  It was the weekend of the Pride festival when we visited, and the country had recently approved gay marriage via referendum.  In addition, while we were there we heard the news that the U.S. Supreme Court had also guaranteed the right of same-sex couples to marry with their landmark decision in Obergefell v. Hodges.  It felt like a significant moment, like a look into a brighter future.

A visit to the Sagrada Família in Barcelona also requires a look into the future.  The masterwork of architect Antoni Gaudí, the church was begun in 1882 and is scheduled to be finished in 2026.  It was amazing even under construction, so I look forward to returning to see the completed building in the future.

You can find more from the future at the original Lens-Artist challenge.

Who knows where the path of the future will take you?  Hopefully someplace as pretty as the Beara Peninsula!
