It’s an extraordinary space, like all of Gaudi’s designs. The light was beautiful up on the roof, as you saw yesterday. And how strange to have a power station on the horizon. I’m a day late with my Skyline but hopefully Debbie will forgive me. Meanwhile I’m Dreaming of Buttercups.
A superior kind of living space
Some of you asked to see inside. I’m sure you’ll agree, it’s a bit special. Tomorrow, up on the roof! Happy weekend!
Six Word Saturday
On an ordinary street, an extraordinary building. You could say, it’s all glammed up! Gaudi’s Casa Batlló. We’re all looking up today!
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!
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.
I guess it’s about time to post my last sequence of windows from Barcelona. Life is moving forward at quite a pace. At this rate I’ll soon be looking back at 2013! Anyone for a last wander in those Barcelona streets? Just click on a photo.
Looking up into Barcelona Cathedral
Such an elegant touch on the balcony
The exciting architecture of the Rambla
No such thing as ordinary!
Even in a shopping centre.
The prettiest of port buildings
You know I’m not greedy, but I’d settle for this one!
I can’t leave without one last salute to Gaudi. He gave me so much pleasure with his beautiful houses, Casa Batllo and Casa Mila.
The stairwell at Casa Batllo- a vision in blue
The romance of stained glass
And in Casa Mila, curtains rustle romantically at the window
Sunset beyond the lace
What could be more nostalgic?
I’m joining Dawn again this week in her Lingering look at Windows. Why not come and play? Soon it will be Christmas windows! Just click on the link.
No time for colour- Barcelona tomorrow!
Here it comes!
I type this while looking over my shoulder at the prettiest of sunrises, and with a stomache churning with excitement. It’s all been a little frantic because my daughter arrived home yesterday evening and we have so little time. The Whitby Goth Festival is on this weekend, and she and Leo intend to visit on their way home tomorrow. I would LOVE to be there but I’m up at the crack of dawn for my Barcelona flight. (she promises to share photos!)
The iconic Sagrada Familia- with grateful thanks to Wikipedia
I have no illusions that I will be able to take photos like this, but you’d better believe I’m going to try! The forecast is for rain on Sunday, when I arrive, but sunny thereafter. I can’t wait!
Total fantasy! Casa Batllo- courtesy of Wikipedia.
Will I be in Casa Batllo on my birthday on Tuesday? I don’t really know, but I can think of worse places. I will be home for Six word Saturday next week though (shame!).
