Classic, Post-modern, Contemporary … Facades @ Barcelona (Spain)

Catalan Gothic and Modernisme architecture may be the mainstream in Barcelona, but the city has a variety of other architectural styles to offer too. I intentionally included the trees in the foreground to highlight that these facades are actual street view, which otherwise look like a Photoshopped collage.

CaixaForum Madrid (Spain)

There seems to be a global trend of converting abandoned electrical stations and old power plants to museums or art galleries. CaixaForum Madrid (Spain), Tate Modern (UK) and The Power Plant (Canada), just to name a few.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Numbers


Magic Square

The door of the Sagrada Familia (Barcelona, Spain) is full of engraved words in various languages taken from the Bible. This Magic Square stands out among the words. The numbers in each row, and in each column, and in the diagonals, all add up to a magic constant of 33, the age of Jesus Christ at the crucifixion.

33? I am always tempted to verify that again and again.

Guggenheim Museum Bilbao (Spain)

A close-up of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.聽The architect, Frank Gehry, said that “the randomness of the curves are designed to catch the light”. I think I caught the聽reflection of the Sun.

An architectural masterpiece that is full of imagination. My submission for Weekly Photo Challenge: Abstract

My response to Weekly Photo Challenge: Treat. Pardon me for not going with the Halloween theme or the self-indulgence theme … I don’t have聽those photos in my archives 馃檪

The Cyclist

The Cyclist

I was alone in a聽quiet alley of Toledo (Spain) when I heard a bicycle bell from afar and I thought a cyclist might be coming around the corner and down the slope. I got ready and snapped a shot as soon as he appeared.

This is my interpretation of the theme Descent.
