When it came to looking back at all the pictures I took in Barcelona, I found I had taken over seven hundred photographs. Yes. 7-0-0. Knowing how I like to structure my writing, I knew it would be unlikely that I'd end up sharing even half of the best ones. As I didn't want them to be saved on hard drive somewhere, forgotten about and collecting dust, I figured I'd grab my favourites and put them together in some more photography-heavy posts.

I don't think I stopped snapping whilst I was at Park Güell. It felt like everywhere I turned - left, right, up

or

down - there was always something else to admire. I've always loved Mexican-style tiles. The exciting conjunction and contrast of bright colours and garish patterns makes me feel so joyful. 

So, as you can probably imagine, being surrounded by a wild assortment of beautifully coloured and patterned tile segments, somehow working so seamlessly together, was a real treat. In fact, I was so busy darting my eyes towards every fleck of colour, that I somehow failed to notice that the lizard was a water feature. D'oh.

It wasn't until after leaving the park, that I realised how much Gaudi's work had an impression on me. I mentioned in my

Barcelona: Day Two

post that I was itching to create a Gaudi-inspired collage of my own, but since I've thought back to the various pieces of his I saw whilst in Barcelona, it's become clear that I've been wondering how I can implement this fascination into my creations. As I sit here now, I'm struggling to find more to say about his work... Especially when I feel as though it does a lot of the talking for me. I mean, just look at it!
