When One Door Closes….

The photo challenge from Travelling at Wits End: When One Door Closes

I must admit I have a door fetish when travelling in Europe. I had to stop myself from posting too many. But you can’t have too many door photos can you?

Geometry and Windows

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge Week 1: Photo Geometry, bushes, window, brick, curtain, green, tan, wall, building, dark red, tree

What a selection Cee has chosen for us to pick from. I think it may be several posts if I get the inspiration. This post started off as Geometry but a few Windows appeared.

Some geometry from inside an art work in the Centre Pompidou Paris

Black & White Sunday: Ceiling

I couldn’t go past the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona for my fab ceiling photos. OK I couldn’t stop at one for the Lost in Translation black and white photo challenge Ceiling

One of my favourite buildings in the world. Gaudi is amazing with his vision for a fantastic building.

Reflecting

The Daily Post photo challenge made me think of the photos I have with reflections. The ones that I chose were from the hours spent in La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. The whole structure is so amazing. The outside with its many carvings  and intricate designs but once inside the amazement turns to wonderment. The light through the myriad of stained glass windows is breathtaking.

The light reflects on every surface lighting the Sagrada with dancing colours.

This a small selection of what I saw.
