Barcelona, a photo a day

Merry-go-round


A nice one, seen last summer next to the IMAX cinema and the Aquarium. It seems to be a very popular place, usually, not as empty as it was the day I took the picture! There is an icecream stand next to it as well.
The weather was wonderful. Right now, we’re having a ‘siberian’ cold wave, according to the papers, with temperatures as low as 5 degrees centigrade……….

  5. That really is beautiful. Maybe the cold temps are contributing to the lack of riders, even though the lady on the right looks pretty comfortable.

  7. I love merry go rounds and this one is gorgeous with its colours and detailed top. Do adults still like to ride on them I wonder? BTW, I like your new header – it's wonderful.
    Cheers.
