Gaudi in Barcelona

The building is running away ! Call the Police

I would really like to have some of whatever Gaudi was on, when he designed these buildings.

Somehow, looking at those tangled, jangled curves and those impossible windows and the anything-but-linear thinking behind every angled facade, every kaleidoscopic tile, I felt right at home. And I felt that I could do anything, anything. Funny ? Maybe, but that's what I felt

My favourite: Casa Battlo, also known as " Skull and Bones"

First glimpse of Casa Battlo at night. I knew I had to go back there the next morning

The window of a Barcelonian

So you think you can tell, heaven from hell ...

I wasn't drunk. Inspired by Gaudi, I took these shots from behind a kaleidoscopic glass tile.

I somehow think the effect is appropriate

That crazy terrace

Look at this and tell me if you don't think this building has life


La Segrada Familia was a bit of a disappointment because of all the construction going on. This is the only part that was without cranes and scaffolds

La Pedrera

When I first saw La Pedrera, admittedly after a lot of Vino, I could swear it was moving. The building was running away ! I was ready to call the police.

But I did not have the police phone number. I did not even have a phone
