A little tour around BCN

We went into BCN for part of the weekend, and it was a beautiful day. BCN continues to come up with surprises...it is a wonder I don't hurt something I spend so much time gawking up at the buildings....

This is the moto I would like to have if I ever have to get one. I think I could do without the tape on the seat though....


You know how this was done? Bricks, ingenuity and care, and it is beautiful.


This is the Pedrera...or Casa Mila, this is a seperate section where they have free art exhibits...though you can see it as you exit the building if you don't go through the gift shop....

Detail of Gaudi's work....


And check out the bar! It is actually British-ish.. and I think has absolutely nothing to do with Barack...


*whew* this note to self to bring the camera with me is turning this into a photoblog...I may have to work on balance here at some point.

BCN is a lovely city.

I like the photoblog aspect of “Oreneta Aground” – keep those images coming...
In this post, I especially like the one of Gaudi’s work and the Obama pub!

don't worry, nobody will blame you for photographic overflow :)

Lovely photos! The brick buiding could be a quilt, too. I'll travel through your eyes....

Awesome photos! I love the brick building.

And the little moto is just what I need! Too bad in LA, everything is so spread out and necessitates a car!

Did you have a drink at the bar! Too fun!

Mmichele, something to anticipate!

Love the photos. The bricks are especially nice. I would never accuse you of having too many photos.
