curved (PhotoHunt)


This week’s PhotoHunt theme is “curved.” Curves are amply represented in my photo library, but what came to mind in particular were some sights we saw on our recent trip to Barcelona. Namely, works by Antoni Gaudí, an architect known for (among other things) an avoidance of using straight lines.

On our last full day in Barcelona, prompted by strong recommendations from azahar and Sally, we paid a visit to Casa Battló, a house full of plenty of curved lines. Windows, doors and even walls showed plenty of curves. This was my favorite photo I took there.

I’ll hopefully get around to posting more photos from that visit soon, as well as others from our trip to Spain. (I know, I know, I keep saying that.)

For other people throwing us some curves, stop by tnchick.

  1. Nice soft images…subtle curves. Nice.

  2. Yay! I’m so glad you went there. Great photo–I recognized it immediately. :)

  3. Wow, great pic! Hope you come over and check out my curved shots too! :)

  4. That’s a fabulous photo.

    • Actually, Den, I don’t think you do see me. That’s one of the things I like about the photo. It has the visible reflections of several people, but not the photographer. Whether a trick of the lighting, or the curvature of the surfaces, I can’t find myself in the reflection.

  5. Yet another great photo. Was the reflection intentional? Anyway, I like the reflection. Of course Gaudi park is a must if I ever get to Barcelona. Haven’t heard of Casa Batllo at all till now. Thanks! (“IF” I ever get there…)
