I find myself so drawn to architecture.  I enjoyed it before we moved to Europe, but now I can't stop photographing doors, windows and iron works.  I've started to shoot images at different angles to give it a bit more interest since I seem to take lots of church photos.

Barcelona is a beautiful city with a wide variety of styles.  As we walked around the city I kept saying, "ohh, I love that building, or awww.... love that...!"  Overall, we had a fantastic trip!  We walked the city, did some shopping, visited a Spanish palace designed by Gaudi, walked through Parc Guell, visited the Picasso museum, ate tapas and enjoyed the sunshine.  Two thumbs up for Barcelona!
