Photographer's Note

This is a shot of the MACBA (Museu d'art contemporani Barcelona) in Barcelona. Given yesterday's "controversy" over similar POV's to Lousat's image of the MNAC, the eagle eyed amongst you will possibly spot that this is very similar to a shot taken by JFS called... MACBA. The similarity on this occasion is entirely deliberate. Let me explain why...

I had planned a trip to Barcelona where JFS lives and being an admirer of his work I intended to take this shot and upload it in the hope that Juan would recognize it and comment. My idea was to then say "Hello Juan, I am in Barcelona do you want to meet so that we can take photos together?" However, my plan did not come to fruition since, sadly, Juan decided to stop posting on TE before I could follow my plan through. However, we did meet up anyway and I had a great time.

So this shot is in tribute to Juan as an homage and a thank you for a wonderful day in Barcelona.

Mine is a different POV and crop that emphasises the curved shape of the concrete more than Juan's shot, illustrating once again how the same subject can be interpreted differently from the same POV.

The MACBA was a real surprise to me the standard of the art in inside was excellent. A must visit place if you ever go.
