A Sampling of Barcelona Architecture (and other miscellaneous ‘angular’ thoughts)

8 Comments


A Fun Friday post instigated by a WordPress Photo Challenge which proved quite interesting in putting together. Here was what we were told: “What does angular mean to you? It might mean the corner on which you live or the intersection of sea and sky at a 180 degree angle. Angular also offers a chance to shoot from an entirely new perspective: from above, below, or even from the margins of the fray. Above all, have fun!”

Angular can be interpreted in different ways but I decided to go back to the photos I took last year when I visited the city of Barcelona, Spain. The architecture was absolutely amazing and definitely offered an interestingly unique mixture of various angles and curves.

But I also recently realised two things which cropped up one day:

#1: That snails for some reason love to chill out by hanging upside-down at right angles from the tree branches in my garden 🙂

And #2 that sometimes the angle of a sign (or maybe it’s the angle of my head) can throw a whole new perspective on directions (yikes)! Guess this shows that “too far East is West” 🙂

  2. Fabulous architecture! I miss seeing buildings that are hundreds of years old. We don’t have much of that in the US.

  3. Here I was looking at some of your pictures thinking, “Hey that looks a lot like Barbados!” (we were very fortunate to visit a few years ago, it is unforgettable)…. I am still absolutely dying to visit Barcelona though – every time we think about taking a trip, something comes up to scupper the plans! Love the snails hanging around – such sweet creatures!
    This weekend is all about catching up on some R&R with the family… test is over and I passed *deep whew* … and may your weekend be wonderful 🙂
