Gold Fish by Frank O. Ghery, Barcelona

Gold Fish by Frank O. Ghery, Barcelona [enlarge]

The Gold Fish or Peix D'Or by Frank O.Ghery near Hotel Arts and Paseo Marítimo is located in the middle of a complex of restaurants, shops and discos known as the Olympic Port which is one of the most visited spots in the city specially at night. Check a previous post with the Gold Fish silhouette in the distance. The sculpture built in 1992 for the Olympic games acts as a canopy for some of the restaurants and a fountain in the underground floor.

It looks nice. I assume it is metal or painted a rust color. I would afford lots of shade I would guess.

Nice shot.

You have managed to perfectly capture the wonderful rich colours and metal network of this sculpture.

Wheever I visit Barcelona I love to hire a bicycle and ride along the promenande from the Port Vell area, through Barcelonneta, past the Gold Fish and Olympic village and on until I reach the Forum and back again (resting on the concrete chairs).

I'm not particularly athletic but it is just a wonderful journey along the sea front. Very exhilerating.

Happy memories:o)

My goal is to stay at the Hotel Arts but I think that I will need to win the lottery first!!!!
