Serpentine Bench Detail at Park Guell, Barcelona, Spain

Serpentine Bench Detail at Park Guell, Barcelona, Spain [enlarge]

A detail of a serpentine bench at Park Guell, Barcelona. Not the first time I show you these modernist benches by Gaudi. Using the trencadis technique he composed curious patterns that not only included color tiles but several other pieces that look like bottle bottoms to me. If you enlarge the picture you will be able to see what I mean. For those of you who have not visited the park I should say that the undulated benches encircle a big terrace with a view over Barcelona and the sea.

They are sinuous and seductive, and in my visit there I noticed they attract many of those lovers also interested in the art of seduction!

By the way, last time I was there. I stayed in a small apartment in Barceloneta. I liked it so much that when the family comes with me this time, we will stay there again - Carrer San Miquel. I thought it was perfect! We can take time out to swim if it is warm enough, or just stroll away from the more frantic pace of the rest of Barcelona, and be close enough to transport to get everywhere else. I thought Barca's 3 day tourist bus ticket was one of the best value tourist buses I have ever encountered anywhere and takes you absolutely everywhere a tourist would want to go, and then some!

Very nice photo. Maybe you know, I lived in Barcelona for 2 years, and your pictures remind me so many good memories. Which lens did you use for that shot?
