The theme for the photo hunt this week is different. I looked through my recent archives and ran across some pictures I took in Barcelona, Spain of the Gaudi buildings. Nothing says different and unique in architecture like a Gaudi building. Strange, beautiful and amazing stuff. I’d never seen anything like them.

 This is Casa Batlló.  You can find out more by clicking on the official site link here and/or by going to the wikipedia link here.  Check out these sites, it’s pretty interesting stuff.

Photo Hunt – Narrow

Laundry, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl.

It took me a little while to come up with a photo for this weeks theme, but I finally narrowed it down, every pun intended, to this one I took in a very narrow street in Barcelona, Spain. Narrow street, narrow place to hang your laundry, and small narrow balconies.

I’ve been playing around with the Aperture program and, obviously, haven’t quite figured it all out. I will, but even still… I liked how this came out. Strange, yet cool somehow. Or maybe that’s just the color of it that makes it seem cool. Hmmmm…

The Roman Columns

Saturday, Sept. 15, we headed down to the port, beach, the Olympic Stadium, and the Joan Miro museum. These roman columns mark the entry to a group of buildings that are now used for exhibitions, conferences, etc. At the other end of the plaza between the buildings is a major art gallery.

The weather on Saturday was hot. Very hot. It wasn’t so much the temperature outside, though it was up a lot from the day before, but it was humid, which to the bunch of us made it a water guzzling kind of day. Sweaty, but incredibly fun.

The large round stained glass window here was enormous. We all speculated about how it was possible, especially at the time this was built, to install something so huge. It is absolutely beautiful.
