Modernista IV

Over at the Parque Guell, Gaudi built this gecko to hang out in the middle of a variety of his buildings. On warmer days, water pours out of his mouth too.

Face It. VIII

This was some sort of advertisement for the Barcelona Metro System, and some kind of social networking contest thing.

Lydia found it incredibly disturbing and will probably not be thrilled that I took a picture of it and have posted it here.

Modernista III

Just a few of the many sculptures on the roof of "La Pedrera." There was a line down the street to get in, but it was way worth it.

Modernista II

Gaudi's final masterpiece, La Sagrada Familia in the distance, rising above Barcelona.

Modernista I

One of several Gaudi buildings we visited while in Barcelona for a long weekend. Here is the Casa Batllo at night.

Face It. V and a half.

Also in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona, and also sort of creepy faces, so I guess it qualifies for this series.

I like the reflection in the side of this one:

And this one made me think of something I would happily roll marbles down for hours as a child.

In Your Dreams.

What's that you say? You're such a big fan of the film Hook (directed by Steven Spielberg in case you forgot) that you wish there was a pirate themed Hook bar. Well, I guess dreams really do come true.
