I dipped into the files in search of sunshine and arrived in “Park Guell” on a busy afternoon in June.
In fairness, this was the busiest part of the park, protected by admittance by ticket only, we paid our fee and joined many, many other tourists who were there as we were, not for the quiet tranquility of this piece of park, but to feast our eyes (and cameras) on what “Gaudi” had offered our imagination.
This first picture is taken from the window of the gift shop building, and to me the steps look just as much as they’ve been made out of gingerbread and icing as the two gate buildings. If you look at about half way up the steps you can see a small crowd, this is the main focus of most of the cameras in this area, the salamander water fountain, locally known as “el drac” (the dragon).
Hubby sat very patiently while I tried hard to find a gap in the crowds for my turn with the camera, eventually I managed to find a gap on one side and quickly snapped this one.
Then with a lot more camera clicking, a little tight cropping and a bit of help from photoshop, I managed to come up with this one.
