Barcelona through My Lens: A Photo Journal

To me, THIS is Barcelona: Men playing Bocce Ball and Smoking Cigars

“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).

    1. Hi Katie!

      Thank you so much for the kind words and for stopping by! Barcelona was beautiful — much more beach and sea-centered than I thought. Of course, I love that!

      Happy Easter to you and your family … enjoy the rebirth.

  2. Hi Jennifer, Lovely pictures from Barcelona. We have not made and plans to return to Europe soon. $$$$ to much $$$$$ I’ve always thought it would be great to visit Spain (Barcelona, Madrid). We flew over the Alps a few times- SO AMAZING… from Heidelberg, Ge to Malllorca – and Venice to Heidelberg. Wishing you and your Family all the Best in Prague. Karen, Atlanta Ga

    1. Hi Karen,
      Thank you! Europe is expensive, and also pricey to venture to the US from Europe … so we travel here now while we can. It won’t last forever. Soaking it all up.
      Thank you for stopping by– it’s great to meet you.
      -Jennifer
