Counting backwards 356 days brings me back to my trip to Barcelona. Man, did i love that city. That wonderful combination of people, architecture, food and climate made it to one of my top weekend trips ever. Well – I had a certain lady tripping with me, which pushed the positive experience even further (thanks, Maria).
I am a guy that appreciates interesting architecture, but I rarely photographs it straight on. Like this on (above), shot outside the fantastic church of la Sagrada Famila. Gaudi is an old time favourite as well, so we tried to check out his work as we made our way through the city. I think my best experience was the Parc Güell – an large recreation area with actually is open to use as Gaudi intended. Fantastic mosaic and an organic open architecture wich emulates the nature surrounding it.
Walking by foot is a great way of experience a city. It will take longer to get to the spots you want to see, but I think it gives me a much more true picture of the people living there. It´s between the spots the interesting stuff takes place :)
Well, that’s it from september 11th 2009. It looks like the kids gave me the best images this day. The skater kid images is one of my favourites: I was looking in another direction when I turned around and had this scene in front of me. A good picture takes ages to find and passes by in a split second.
