“It’s the change of rhythm which I think is what keeps me alive. In Spain I hear so much noise from my window that can’t stand it. In Switzerland it’s the lack of noise that drives me crazy.” -Geraldine Chaplin
All my life, I have dreamed of going to Spain … from the days of my first Spanish class in 6th grade to the advanced Spanish literature and history classes I took earning a Minor in college. Last weekend, my family and I went. To Barcelona.
There are so many things to say about Spain, and about the spirit so alive in Barcelona. But as with many things, sometimes photographs do a better job at communicating. So, a glimpse at Barcelona through the lens of my camera. Enjoy!
*A great novel entitled The Cathedral of the Sea, by Ildefonso Falcones, tells a story of medieval Catalonia and Barcelona centered around the story of the building of the Catedral de Santa Maria del Mar. A compelling page-turning story I enjoyed (click here for the book’s website).
