Street Lamp, Portal del Angel, Barcelona

Street Lamp, Portal del Angel, Barcelona [enlarge]

And now for something completely different, a modernist lamp at Portal del Angel, a very important street in Barcelona, near Plaza de Catalunya. Perfectly preserved, the lamp can be admired from a close distance since it is almost at street level. Other elaborate art nouveau lamps were shown here in the past: Art Nouveau Lamps.

C'est peut-être un lampadaire à gaz, vu qu'il orne la porte de l'ancienne compagnie de gaz catalane, tel que le rappelle les initiales entrelacées qui le décore ?

An exquisite shot of a gorgeous lamp. I cannot believe how much I feel all the various textures in this photo. What a treat!

Happy New Year to you and your family, Carlos!

Dear Carlos,

...thank you for the good time I've had on your blog.... for all the beauty and the interesting stories.

May you always have walls for the winds,
a roof for the rain,
tea beside the fire,
laughter to cheer you,
those you love near you,
and all your heart might desire.
Happy New Year!

First of all I would like to say I needed some rest. Many have seen me perhaps on twitter or social median. That's is not so consuming as taking a picture and writing a post. But I will keep up the blog. Happy New Year.
-LOL Deborah, cleaning that up must be tough.
-La Sudiste, you are right, that must be the place and those the initials. I was in a hurry and decided to skip that important info you so kindly have added. -Thanks! Merci. (I translate your words "Maybe that's a gas lamp. I have seen that it adorns the door to old Catalan de Gas company as indicated by the interlinked initials?")
-Happy New Year Lydia and family. Thanks for your kind comment.
-Happy New Year Claire. I love your photos.
-Ulla, your words are very flattering. Thanks. Happy New Year
-Well, yes, Uma that PDF would be great. Some day I will visit your lovely country Portugal. Happy New Year
-Thanks bitingmidge. As I said above I'll be back. Happy New Year
-Thanks so much jo. Happy New Year
