Photography Holiday

Earlier in the year I read about an artist who took annual photographic holidays. He would dedicate one vacation to taking photos as the adventure. That was my goal for Barcelona and it has sparked a renewed interest in photography. Instead of using my mobile phone camera I am back to the big digital and am even shooting on manual as opposed to automatic.

Yesterday we walked along the beach and found the high roller areas near the casino. Plus, too much information naked lady sunbathing. We walked about 1 million miles to Stephen's new favorite piece of architecture - Gaudi's Sagrada Familia. It is so large and dominating the city that we kept thinking we were just a few blocks but in reality it was miles away.

Today Julie and I visited Gaudi's Park Guille and his home which has been turned into a museum. The mosaics were breathtaking.
