A Day filled with inspiration


We threw off our jet lag and hit Barcelona with gusto today. It was a Gaudi day. We started at Park Guell, the magical park designed by Antoni Gaudi, Barcelona's incredible artist/architect. It is filled with his fanciful designs and structures, including this crazy mosaiced lizard. The sense of fantasy, mixed with natural beauty and stunning views along a series of walking paths is a photographer's dream. Here are just some of the many photos I took.


These last two are but a sample of the entertainers encountered along the paths through the park. In the afternoon we visited Gaudi's masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia, but I'm saving those photos for tomorrow.



  1. Ah - bringing back memories. I spent the month of July in Barcelona and the Gaudi buildings, park, etc. were for sure a highlight! Thanks for the memories.

  2. So lucky to actually be able to sit on the benches, when we visited there was not an inch to squeeze into much less take a photo. Didn't matter though it was so wonderful to see Gaudi's work. If you will be there long enough don't miss El Palau De La Musica Catalana, not Gaudi but a contemporary, the concert hall ceiling is a stained glass sunflower. There is an hour long English tour, we also attended 2 concerts, and confess that anytime we where walking in that area we stopped in again. Enjoy!!
