  1. Thanks, everyone! Jacey, thanks for visiting (and returning to) my blog! And Eugene, yes — I especially like the exit shot, too. Thanks for the comment — coming from a photographer like you, it’s appreciated. :)

  2. I stumbled across your blog a few weeks ago, and I really appreciate this post. This is definitely a trip down memory lane. I visited Barcelona (also Madrid and Toledo) in 2006. Parc Gruell and La Sagrada Familia were definitely two of the best sites from my trip. Gaudi was incredible, and you’ve really captured his talent in these photos.

  3. Love the Gaudi photos–you have a “good eye”…will have to see La Pedrera next time I visit Barcelona.
