    Vidar you had better post more!

    Not being familiar with Casa Mila, I was completely amazed when I saw your photo - and still am. What a wild expressionistic, dream like building and your view of it and black and white treatment is haunting. Beautifully seen, Vidar. :bravo-009: What an incredible building...just read about it a bit.

    Yes. absolutely post the rest when you have a chance. That's a great shot. A woman posted a bunch of shots from a Mediterranean cruise that started and ended in Barcelona over at DPReview recently. Several shots from the same rooftop, also very nice. But there's something very haunting about your B&W treatment.

    Its all whetting my appetite for my visit in a couple of months, although I'm only Barcelona for a couple of days and the first one will probably be largely lost to jet lag.

    Here is two pictures from Parc Güell, this park is also designed by the genious architect Antoni Gaudí. The park is really beautiful, but it was VERY overcrowded with tourists. But I can´t complain as I was one of those tourists too..

    I just love these Vidar. When I look at them, especially in their larger sizes over on flickr, I feel as though I am in a Fellini film!:biggrin::cool:
