And that’s how you do it, chicos, said the old man.

Our World Tuesday is a very cool meme, and it is here!

Skywatch Friday

The Tibidado hill, seen from between the hotels on the sea front, near Diagonal Mar.

Skywatch Friday, right here.


Walking the curve

Nice effect found in one of my programs. This is for Dragonstar’s Weekend in Black and White.


Urban Jungle

Now and then, in the big city (and BCN has approximately 2Mio. inhabitants), you can find a spot where you could imagine you’re millions of miles away.
This said, to accentuate this feeling unwittingly, I was standing with both feet in an anthill when I took this picture on Sunday. I moved out quite fast!

This is My World on Tuesday, full of ants and magic places.


The Big Blue Museum


I showed you an inhabitant of this place a few days ago, a lovely stuffed goat. Well, this is where the goat lives. It is an equilateral triangle 180 meters on each side, 25 meters high. It was built in 2004 by the architects Herzog and De Meuron. It hosts now the Museum of Natural History, aka the blue museum.

A few random pictures from in- and outside.


This is for James’s Weekend Reflections. Have a look!


Museu Blau

One of the friendly exhibits at the brand new Museu Blau, the blue museum, aka the Museum of Natural History. The building itself is…a weird dark blue ‘floating’ triangle and so built that is is a bit of a challenge¬† getting good pictures of it. Well, I tried, you’ll see the result…soon.¬† Meanwhile, you can always have a look here.

Doesn’t he look real???


Andalusia!

At the Fiera de Abril.

And happy 2nd blogaversary to our good friend Leif, from Eagan Daily Photo! May you have a fantastic 3rd year!

Homegrown or home grown?

Braving the weather and my not good state of health, we went yesterday to part of town unknown to us . And we spotted this quite unusual building, near metro Maria Cristina. We don’t know what’s in it. Made me think of those books/movies about the end of the world, mankind isn’t anymore, animals and plants took over the planet… Oh, the traffic light is still on… Maybe there is someone left, after all!

Happy Easter to all of you!
