Muses at Palau de la Musica in Barcelona
© All Rights Reserved
In spite of the awful framing and the rest of technical errors, due to the secrecy of the snapshot,(remember it is not allowed to take pictures inside Palau de la Música Catalana or Catalan Music Concert Hall) you are able to see just there on the left, behind stage, six of the Nine Muses coming from the wall like silent ghosts. There were three ushers and a lady carrying a staff badge, personally reminding you not to shoot, although some people in the middle of the audience managed to take out their compact cameras and I could see some flashes fired. Nevertheless whenever I raised my Nikon someone came and told me off. Anyway, this stolen peep at one of the altars of Catalan modernisme made breaking the rules inevitable and almost justifiable.
