Barcelona, a photo a day

Watery Wednesday


W…ell, another Wednesday, a Watery one as usual. Still ‘levitating’, I came towards the high rise Westin hotel. Quite a new place, it opened a year ago, or so. Last time I was there, Shakira was filming one of her clips there, you might have seen it (forgot the title, not being a fan of the lady’s music). Right there, on this very beach.
I posted another picture of the Barcelona seafront, all of it, here, if you are curious (and it’s healthy, being curious!).

Watery Wednesday of course!!!

  2. Dave, I actually saw the video being filmed, parts of it. Nice showcase for BCN.
    Brattcat, it is a cable car induced levitating…
    2sweetnsaxy, the hotel has a nickname, Barceloneses call it la vela, the sail.

  7. What an interesting shape to that hotel and kind of fitting. Is it just me or does it not look like a whale's fin rising out of the water?

  10. You may have missed the filming of Shakira on the beach. When I was a child, my mother took me to the beach to watch the filming of Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon in “Some Like It Hot.”

    We have a W Hotel in Scottsdale only one mile from our house and we have never been there, as it is in somewhat of an out of the way location.
