Torre de Collserola

the rocket appears to be falling...

Once again, I'm sorry to put your download and browser through the struggle of a 6.6MB animated gif, but I just love making them.

I was thrilled to see that this monstrosity of a tower had an observation deck and was just a 30 minute march from where I'm staying here in the hills of Barcelona. What a sight!

La Pedrera

I have a love/hate relationship with Gaudi, but in this case it's all love, especially because it's a rooftop. La Pedrera, or "The Quarry" is an apartment complex representative of his style and control of the entire process of construction. Every surface has a smoothed, wind blown and eroded touch to it that I loved running my hands over.
