as i can´t visit a City without (if possible) going to a graveyard,
i also brought some Pictures with me
the above one is taking up a songline from bob dylan (you can hear a nick cave Version here) -
so it fits the current ajj challenge, too.
texture from kim Klassen, moon from the net, cancellation brush selfmade
and of course i can´t leave out the fantastic Barcelona song from Freddie Mercury & Montserrat Caballé,
to which i dedicate another digital page:
These are gaudí´s chimneys from the rooftop of the casa milà
and i had to take the font "queen" here... and another texture from kim Klassen;
stamp selfmade, cancellation brush also.
this is how our days started: the breakfast at our Hotel, with lots of fresh fruit, buns with cheese and ham, Salami etc, and fresh baked Little sweet pieces (the Hotel´s bakery must have been at our floor, because this was the first smell every morning when we left our room - yummy!).
great selection of various coffees etc, too!
the city´s largest market was near our Hotel
in hindsight we really knew it was a good choice to book our time in barcelona from sunday to friday...
just look at the photos below - starting late on thursday many People seemed to come into town for a Extended Weekend...
yummy icecream :)
a "must see" - the sagrada familia
more Towers or more cranes? ;)
it is planned to be finished in 2026, the 100th anniversary of gaudí´s death.
on top of the bell Towers: mosaics of venetian glass
contrasting styles of sculptures at the Passion and the Nativity entries
below: view to the ceiling:
the columns look like trees, very organic
elements of nature are everywhere in gaudí´s work
the light in the basilica: on the left you see the colorful glass Windows -
if you step aside you see the light only, from a 90° angle... it´s like Magic!
well, i will stop here with the sagrada famila,
it would be a neverending Story...
i was surprised, how the orange trees sometimes have blossoms and fruit at the same time.
and that smell of the blossoms, aaah...
choose the base, the Colors, the Accessoires individually and create your own sandals
are These high heels cool or what?
(not that i could walk a single step in them;))
and a flea market is not bad as well...
