Scenes from a Barcelona courtyard

Barcelona Courtyard 2

One of my favorite activities while in Barcelona was to simply wander the streets and alleys soaking in the incredible architecture. The good news is that I saw some incredibly interesting architecture and novelties. The bad news is that I had my camera’s GPS turned off so I can’t tell you exactly where some of my images were captured. I do know that these images were taken in the courtyard of a public building located in the Gothic quarter.

I was out wandering before dinner one night when I stumbled into this place. It was two hours or so before sunset and their was a high overcast in the sky. The courtyard was constructed of warm limestone. The result was like a giant lighting soft box had been placed over the sun revealing the texture and tone of the stonework. Other people were just wandering in and out of the courtyard. I was frantically trying to capture as many angles as possible while the magnificent light lasted! These are a few of the images from that evening. I think they capture the feel of the light in that space that magical evening. Enjoy.
