Impressions of Barcelona (August 2018)

On a recent trip to Barcelona, I used the chance to frame up some architecture.

Below are some of the images I was able to make. The images are part of a series I call “Impressions of Barcelona”.

The first image presents a humble scene but it is perhaps my favourite. A plant stretches out as if to seek out light.

The Barcelona Cathedral is a beautiful architectural pearl in the intriguing Gothic quarter.

This pyramidal structure is a wireframe-like sculpture from the Barcelona airport outside park area, which resides inside the airport compound. I kind the Barcelona airport overwhelming and beautiful to behold from the inside (and probably the outsides as well). It has been hard for me to frame up due to its overwhelming proportions though.

I am not quite sure what this venue is called. I happend upon it by chance. It does have a very beautiful interior design and is definitely worth revisiting. There are many interesting angles and frames inside.

The below structure is a bank. It looked to be like a bridge across the sky. I find the clouds, glass and metal surface very appealing and abstract.

Inside the Barcelona Gothic quarter hides numerous atmospheric corners. Boutiques, cafés, restaurants and shops. As if a transforming maze, the places appear and disappear behind sheet metal facades, depending on day and hour of day. This particular clothing store oozed of atmosphere and had to be imaged in color.
