June 1: miscellaneous

A new month and the start of a new studio.

An oblique look into the lightwell from just in front of the elevator by our apartment door.

Nighttime? Daytime! (Just way underexposed.) A sky-churchtower canyon just after leaving the apartment.

Tucked next to the Ramblas, separated by a layer of buildings, is the grand and bustling Plaça Reial, which was on the way to our studio.

The way up to the studio, a rather precipitous route.

9053

Upon striking out for lunch, we found: the narrowest block.

And a sky zag.

It appears that someone tried to will a door into existence in this wall and only halfway succeeded.

9056

Another street canyon, topped with a...tree?

The blown-out sky merges with the blown-out ensunned rounded face of the building at left, leaving its cornice floating.

Well look who it is again — Santa Maria del Mar! And a swallow on high.

9070

In the square on the east side of Santa Maria, a curious conglomeration of sculpture and inlay.

9072

The south face of Santa Maria in utter sun.

9073

More of the mysterious sculpture, looming over passers-by as if designed to make them slightly anxious.

9077

Back at our studio space, complete with glass floor section and fleet of ducts.

Gibbs over Plaça Reial in the late sun on the way home. Studio took place on a rather Mediterranean schedule, starting around 10, I think, and going till about 7PM.

9082

More late sun further along on the Ramblas.

An almost axonometric night view down Bisbe Laguarda from the front balcony.

Eerie glows after dark out the back window.
