Barcelona | A photographic miscellany

Now I must admit, I did get waylaid ever so slightly. Having begun my account of my recent weekend trip to Barcelona at the beginning of last month, I neglected to post what must be the most important post of them all – my good old miscellaneous photograph collection. Such is the drawback of organising a solo art exhibition, the likes of which will be alive and kicking some 6 weeks from now, and the preparation for which is taking up almost every minute of my spare time. So in amongst all of this stress, being able to sit back to write this blog and reflect upon the good times, like Barcelona, provides the perfect antidote, and the process of choosing a selection of photos to show Barcelona at its best has been almost as enjoyable as taking them in the first place.

So why not come on a little journey with me, through the cobbled dark streets of the atmospheric Gothic Quarter to meet the Cathedral geese and sun streaked palaces, or through the old squares whose houses covered with elegant stucco and adorned with ornate ironwork street lamps. Let’s take a small trip to the soft sandy shores of the Costa Brava, or to see the lush slope-hugging gardens of the Montjuic. Then there’s the modern buildings with their abstract reflections, and the paseo by the sea where birds stretch their wings magnificently. It will only be a short stroll – as long as it takes you to flick through the photos below. But in that moment, let these photographs transform you, to the beating bustling heart of Spain’s most vibrant city.

    Such a beautiful bunch of images!! I have not had time to stop and comment, really no time even to stop and read your posts… this moment is an exception… my life is quite messy these days. Thanks for this glance at a magnificent city.

    • You are sorely missed and I am so glad to see your comment, even if it is a rarer occurrence – it’s all the more appreciated as a result. I truly hope your life is messy just because of general busyness and not pain.

        Your comment made me smile, thanks!
        Actually it’s a social, economic and political mess, that affects most of us in Venezuela where I live. The pain has many faces, we have seen plenty of them these days.

      • I’m so sorry to hear that – I had no idea. Hopefully you can gain some respite, whether it be from one of my silly photos of your own fabulous blogging (wish I was better at Spanish so I could understand more!) and that things will progressively sort themselves out. Best wishes

        Thanks for the wishes… Lately my blogging is mostly about the mess… I have a virtual corner just for it. One day, it will end, one way or another and I hope to recover the virtual side of my life that I enjoy so much… and as an admirer of your photos, I refuse them to be called silly, they are so pleasant to me.

    I think that picture with all the flower pots is so divine! Perfect.
