Barcelona is a massive city with amazing architecture from a wide variety of eras. As with most cities of this size, cranes stand over the skyline, building new and renovating the old. I was stood on one of the hills on the outside of the city looking in. I remember one afternoon spent walking around for hours and hours and that is probably when the above image was captured. As for exactly were I was stood, sadly I have very little idea.
The vessel on the right of this frame is an Acciona ferry coming into this big harbor. There weren’t a great number of huge Cruise ships in the dock when I took the above image, but I could see there was clearly enough mooring space for a few. By the looks of the cranes and construction work on the sea front, the port is clearly being developed even more. I can see why as it is very close to the main tourist attraction of the city.
Long time readers will know my love for photographing graffiti or street art. The above street art was found in a very interesting area of Barcelona, just at the end of the main shopping area near the harbour. If you are ever in the area, it is definitely worth a quick look around as there are dozens of wall paintings like the above and even better.
Whilst walking around the popular tourist market in central Barcelona just off Las Ramblas I came across this interesting tiled pattern that looked very like a face. Barcelona is full of unique and photogenic artwork and sculpture. These tiles remind me very much of the Park Guell in the north of the city, which I photographed the following day after taking the above picture.
