Casa Rocamora: Renaissance-Gothic-Inspired Art Nouveau

Casa Rocamora: Renaissance-Gothic-Inspired Art Nouveau  [enlarge]

Casa Rocamora on the corner of Casp street and Passeig de Gracia very near Plaça Catalunya. One of the most beautiful representatives of Catalan Art Nouveau with a touch of Renaissance Gothic influence, it was built by Bonaventura and Joaquim Basegoda in 1914. Not the first time I include this house in Barcelona Photoblog but since the last picture was taken with an old camera which didn't favor the building too much I thought, why not giving it a second chance? Please check my original post: Catalan Modernisme: Casa Rocamora

Hola Carlos,
Me encanta la foto.
Hay una casa en la calle Valencia, esquina Passeo de Grácia, Se llama Casa de la Viuda Marfán. Nunca la he podido ver con los portales de madera abiertos. La he visto en fotos, pero creo que las tuyas serían mejores.
Lo intentarás?
Mil besos

Carlos, WOW! What beautiful light you captured, and how well it showed off this beauty of a building. I have to ask you about your new camera and what lens you used to shoot this. The sharpness and color are wonderful!

-Thanks beantown! Yes my first picture really looked dull. I remember I was pretty satisfied then. That tells me that we can always make it better so it gives me strength to keep trying.
-Obrigado Quin. Si me gusta sobre todo la luz.
-Hola Mónica gracias por el comentario y la sugerencia. Lo tendré en cuenta.
-Muchas gracias Chris. I really appreciate your comment.
-Seguramente pasaste por la puerta. Me alegra recordarte una parte de Barcelona Daniel.
-Well Kim, my camera is one year old. It's a Nikon D70s with a 18-70 mm lens.
