Modernist Lamp Post at Passeig de Gracia, Barcelona

Modernist Lamp Post
© All Rights Reserved

One of the distinguishing traits of Passeig de Gracia in Barcelona, are these modernist lamp posts on both sides of the street. Unlike gas street lighting installed in 1852, these lamp posts with benches date back from 1906 and were designed by Pere Falqués. There are 31 in all as far as I am concerned and were restored in the 80's during a remodelling campaign in the city. Please examine this other shot of the lamp post for more details.

One of my husband's favorite "background" during most of his wedding photoshoots are lampposts...maybe that's where I get this fascination with lampposts, or maybe because I see so many more lampposts from all over the globe through the daily photobloggers posts... not sure which...but either way...this one is one of the best I've seen!

Excelent picture with a very good angle. Never thought that a lamp post would give such photo.

Nice one.

beautiful shot carlos (as usual). i love how the monochrome treatment gives the light orb an opaque, pearl-like quality.
