Things have been really busy here at Elegance Revisited headquarters, and I have been neglecting the blog a bit. Well, real life has a way of interfering with fun hobbies… Another week of work, and I’m ready for a well-deserved break.
Anyway, I thought I’d post a few photos from my Barcelona trip. I can’t believe it was almost two weeks a go! Well, better late than never, I suppose…
Right, about the photos…
Well, you probably know that Barcelona has it all: fabulous architecture (Gaudi, etc), great museums, the beach, the sea, the Old Town, the mountains nearby, shopping and restaurants. And I’ve written about all of it, at one time or another. There’s very little new I could add. Or perhaps I could. I mean, it’s Barcelona, after all. It you’re tired of Barcelona, you’re tired of life.
Huh? It’s Paris, not Barcelona? Well, I disagree: I’ve never understood the fuss about Paris. Barcelona, on the other hand, never ceases to amaze me.
But, you should probably know that I hardly ever take photos of any so-called tourist attractions. The way I see it, these places have been photographed to death by far better photographers than me, and I have nothing worthwhile to add in that respect.
What I can provide is my own, individual interpretation of life in this fantastic town: all the little details that catch my eye as I walk around various (very different) neighbourhoods.
It could be anything: a quiet alley, shop shutters with graffiti, architectural details, or colours and shapes. That’s what I see on my walks.
Because Barcelona is more than just wide boulevards lined with Modernist architecture and luxury shops. It is a beautiful, interesting, creative town full of intriguing details, both old and modern, just waiting to be discovered.
I hope you enjoyed the tour!
