Photographer's Note

Good Morning Eveyone,

This is a section of a wall from Park Guell in Barcelona, which we visited on our short holiday.

Park Guell must be one of the most famous places in Barcelona and, therefore, was a must to see.

Park Güell was commissioned by Eusebi Güell who wanted to create a stylish park for Barcelona aristocracy.

The park contains amazing stone structures, stunning tiling and fascinating buildings and, of course, the Gaudí dragon fountain but I wonder if anyone ever notices this wall. Have you ever seen anything so sinuous, so alive, such wonderful textures and such fine workmanship. I just couldn't wait to photograph it, hoping that I would be able to faithfully recreate the contours, with the light and shade.

Gaudí, who was responsible for the realisation of the park, was, as you can see, strongly influenced by natural shapes and used them in his work.


This is a great place to visit.
I can highly recommend it.
Have a lovely day, Bev :-)
