Paint, Sparkle, and Love (and now I'm finally caught up!)

Ages ago, when my son was around ten or so, I painted one of his favorite comic characters on a pair of his old jeans.
This was done with fabric paint.  I give you, Cable of the Marvel X-Men and X-Force comics and the X-Men cartoon series.
Ah, the things we do for our children.

Nothing 'sparkles' like gold and so here is a lot of gold sparkling.
These photos also represent the prompt 'Love'.
This is the Albert Memorial that was commissioned by Queen Victoria in memory of her husband, Prince Albert
after he died from typhoid.  You really have to love someone to go to this kind of trouble to memorialize them, don't you?
It's way more than I'm expecting when I die.  :  )

This is the full statue here and below this are a few close ups of the sparkly bits.


A very sparkly Prince Albert looking very impressive.

A photo of the top spires and their sparkly bits.

And finally, a close up of the angels that stand watch on the top of the memorial.
So, lots of sparkle and a great love.
