Barcelona, a photo a day

Gaudilona and the Titanic


 
The Plaza de Espana is one of the main hubs in Barcelona, the junction of several major thoroughfares, metro, trains and many many buses… And right in the middle stands a big fountain, by Josep Maria Jujol, one of Antonio Gaudi’s collaborators. No, you cannot escape Gaudi in Barcelona. Maybe we should rename the city Gaudilona, or Bargaudi. You get the same feeling in the lovely city of Cobh, county Cork, Ireland, the Titanic’s last stop. Every shop, pub, restaurant has the word Titanic in it’s name.
Back to Barcelona, the happiest city in Europe… See yesterday’s post. One question: what does it actually mean?

  2. It means folks like yourselves walk around with a goofy smile on your face as you take superb night photos of fountains and statues…

    We can sometimes get a good night shot but we're not happy about it.

    I think.
