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. The architect, Frank Gehry, said that “the randomness of the curves are designed to catch the light”. I think I caught the reflection of the Sun.

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

Weekly Photo Challenge: Treat

Dinner Date

Dinner Date

Candid shot of a sweet couple outside a restaurant. Seems like his treat, but he got to check his wallet first.

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 those photos in my archives 🙂

Casa Batlló

Casa Batlló

Barcelona offers a wide variety of colorful and intricate architecture created by Antoni Gaudí. Here is a relatively rare shot of the facade of Casa Batlló at night. This is my submission for Weekly Photo Challenge: Intricate

Weekly Photo Challenge: Descent

The Cyclist

The Cyclist

I was alone in a 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.
