On top with Gaudi

The rooftop at La Pedrera

The rooftop at La Pedrera

For most of the time I was in Barcelona I was on top of the world!  Gaudi’s architecture far surpassed my expectations.  Could anything top this?  A world of pure fantasy.

Patterned or 'plain'

Everywhere you looked, someone was pointing a camera!

Everywhere you looked, someone was pointing a camera!

And who could blame them?

And who could blame them?

At Casa Batllo I felt I was drifting off into that sky

Lost among the chimney pots

One man's vision, more than enough for me

From the second I saw the Weekly Photo Challenge, my head was full of Gaudi and the time I spent in Barcelona.  I reached some wonderful heights, culminating in the breathtaking Sagrada Familia. If you ever have the chance, do go.

Thanks for the memories!  On top was this week’s theme.  Don’t forget to visit.

  1. 111 likes …. wonderful – stunning post and the photos perfect for the challenge, didn’t do a entry this week. Your photos here is magical … it’s like Barcelona roof tops are painted in gold.
    The last image is my favorite. Stunning entry,Jo!

    1. That last hug just became a big warm hug 🙂 Thank you so much, Vivi. It’s a popular subject. Who doesn’t love Barcelona? I only do the Weekly Photo challenge when it really grabs me because there’s such a big response and I can’t maintain the revisits 🙂

      1. I have started to do the same …. because if the subject don’t talk to me as such … I can’t put my heart into it.
        Barcelona – yes, easy subject when it’s filled with love.
        Magical gallery. Your little camera does a brilliant job, but it’s because it loves what you put it against and it likes your eyes for details.

  2. I was on top of the world when I was 21; it’s probably time to go back there again 🙂 Beautiful, crisp photos – I love the one taken from Casa Batllo 🙂
