Barcelona, a photo a day

Catalan Blue


If I had to define the “natural” color of Barcelona, and generally Catalunya, I would choose this fantastically rich blue you can find everywhere here. This is another door, in a small village just north of Barcelona, along the coast. I think it is the door at number 69.
What would be the defining color of wherever you live?

  1. It is indeed a beautiful blue Rob and Mandy – the colour of the sea and sky on a summer day. The defining colour for Melbourne? Hmm not sure, but I'd probably say red.

  2. Beautiful blue… it looks like the ocean. Our defining color here, I would say, is also ocean color– but the ocean here is a cool blue-grey.

  4. Wonderful detail and awesome shade of blue. The color of Livorno is definitely amaranto (amaranthus? rich purple?) passed from the city banner to the jerseys of the football team.

  8. Bold and amazing!

    I love the blue color, it really soothes tired eyes.

    Here in Al Ain, UAE,we have green color for the building numbers as well as the downtown fences.

    By the way, I started a photoblog to share Al Ain's beauty and simplicity.

  9. As far as I can tell you live in a land of a thousand colors. I do like this blue, and I'd like to know where I can order a set of numbers like these.

  10. This blue does enter the soul.

    Grea photography. A colour for here, well…I guess it would be green, as there is much nature around.
    A wonderful Wednesday for you all.

  14. I like the boldness of this shot contrasted with that soft curtain in the window. Here… in choosing a defining color…it would depend on the season.
