July 25: walk from Palau Nacional
On the way back from the Palau, I took a slightly different route down Montjuïc and then retraced my approach through Poble-sec and Sant Antoni.
On retreat, the reverse one-point perspective.
Suddenly a darkness fell across the land. Either that or I wildly underexposed this shot.
A spirey silhouette.
I wonder how many thousands of buildings are in this view.
This completely looks like someone with voluminous windblown hair and a scarf.
The monitors of the Fundació Miró emerge from the jungle.
Along the twisting Passeig de Santa Madrona is the Museu Etnològic, designed by Antoni Lozoya, Bonaventura Bassegoda Nonell, Joan Puigdengolas and Jesús López, and built in 1973. I love the bas-reliefs over the entrance here.
The Etnològic is planned, curiously enough, on a hexagonal module.
Hidden just downhill in the vicinity of the Museu d'Arqueologia is a network of lovely secluded paths.
Somebirdy left its iridescent feather behind.
Framed Tibidabo along Carrer de Lleida.
Teatre Lliure in the lengthening sun.
A warm palette.
The hulking former Palau dels Esports de Barcelona, now the Teatre Musical.
Back down under the weird diagonal housing block.
Here IT is. IT is set back from Carrer de la França Xica. But what is IT?
Stay out of the parasol zone. Don't cross the line! (This is at the start of Ricart by França Xica.)
Nicely crafted little vents at the end of the parasol zone.
Further down Ricart near El Paral·lel, a glass pixelfont! ESCLAT means "outburst" or "explosion." Hmmmm.
Pyramid bricks at Paral·lel and Manso. These cover the full height of this 10-story building.
A typical sidewalk pattern, further along Manso.
At the Mercat de Sant Antoni (at far left) and the boundary of El Raval, formed by the Ronda de Sant Antoni straight ahead.
Bisbe Laguarda looking dim in the late afternoon light.
After sunset, a marvelous soft glow from the back balcony.
