Color Circles Detail on Art Nouveau Door, Barcelona

Detail on Art Nouveau Stained Glass Door, Barcelona

After much thought and realizing my weekend photo walks were practically nil, I've decided to sacrifice lunch time at the office to go downtown (Passeig de Gracia is about 5 blocks away from work) and enjoy doing what I like most, street photography.

So while the archives pile up and run amok, just exaggerating a little bit here, why not starting with a colorful abstraction to draw your attention and stimulate the senses.

This is a detail of an Art Nouveau stained glass door you can admire inside Casa Amatller, that other house next to more popular Casa Batlló. Here is the ceiling at Amatller modernista house and a window detail.

Watch this beautiful modernist lamp at Amatller House or take a glimpse at the indented façade by Puig i Cadafalch

  4. This is just what I needed to see on a snowy, cold and wet English weekday. The colours in this photo really lift the soul.

    Beautiful clarity and contrast. I could look at this picture for hours. In fact, I might just!
