This city is a paradise of architecture. So, do not focus on your aim and look around. I walked a lot because of doing this but I had a chance to see this nice house.
We were walking to Parc Güell and following the signs. I saw the hose inside a garden and the sundial on top of it attracted me. I took some photos and then we lost the signs of Parc Güell. When we found them again, we couldn’t understand that they are for vehicles.
We had a proverb in Turkish to describe the situation. “Akilsiz basin cezasini ayaklar ceker.” which means “Feet get punished by the mistakes of the foolish head”
By the way, do not miss the signs to your aim.
I always liked to see art pieces, graffities and slogans on the walls. I feel that their intentions are so pure. Not to be in an exhibition hall keep them being hypocrite. So, I always take photos of these kind of work in every city I visited. Enjoy them and smile as a price for effort of the artist.
For me personally, this is really fun. I first discovered Botero in an exhibition in Singapore - so that started a little game for me ~ to see where I will bump into his sculptures when I am travelling.
In Barcelona, I have encountered 2 - The Horse, standing proudly in the El Prat airport and The Cat, in Ramblas del Raval.
"In 1957, Dr Bekhman, a Russian chemist, undertook a revision of the main pharmacological, biological and chemical studies on GINSENG, saying that the GINSENG from Korea possesses a clear tonic effect and a stimulating action on the central nervous system, increasing the capacity of the human being in his physical relationships.....
The stimulation of the libido by the Ginseng seems to follow an indirect route that goes via the brains' central neurones".
All human beings are born with a potential for sexual conduct; the particular type of conduct of each person depends on the interaction of the environment (opportunity) and on the genes (the genetic content).
All human beings have the capacity to respond in a positive way in the event of an erotic-sexual stimulus, of which ever nature it may be or from who ever it may come from.
There isn't only one given form of "natural" sexuality which is biologically given, but there is a whole spectrum of sexual possibilities, there is a great diversification, which gives rise to a variety of sexual practices......
.......Sex is not a fatality but a possibility for creative life. For this matter, we shouldn't try to reduce the human sexual diversity to a uniform way of behaving "correctly". It's necessary for us to defend sexual diversity and social pluralism, a pluralism where by new styles of life can fit in, and different desires and different moralities can be recognised."
Don Armand de Fluvin i Escorsa - 1997
Here are some outstanding graffities which is located right in front of the Centre de Cultura contemporania of Barcelona. The corner street would be Carrer de Montalegre, which we shall attach photos off , as well.
Barcelona's architecture can be breathtaking. I suggest you to get lost in the city, and take a look at the building façades, the roofs, or even the small streets that surround the city. There are many impressive buildings, many street scenes that seem to be taken from a history book and many roofs decorated with bautiful brass statues. This is what makes this city so special. Put beautiful architecture in a jar and mix it with wonderful people, and you'll get a great city, you'll get Barcelona.
This colourful 20 meter high Pop-Art construction from Roy Lichtenstein was completed in 1992 for the Summer Olympics. It is located between Marina Port Vell and Moll d'Espanya
Roy Lichtenstein (1923 - 1997) was a prominent American pop artist, whose work borrowed heavily from popular advertising and comic book styles, which he himself described as being "as artificial as possible."
Designed by Josép Vilaseca, the red brick Arc del Triomf was the entrance to the World Fair in 1888 in the Parc de la Ciutadella. The arc is in mudéjar-style and has pictures of industry and trade on it.
