BARCELONA AND LA RAMBLA...


Top Ten



Look up…

A suggestion I once made,

Largely forgotten

But I was reminded of this

In Barcelona,

Where domes and spires,

Monuments and sculptures

Fascinated and distracted

From the sketchy trove

Of treasures

And infamy ill-gotten…

 

Look up…

A decision I now took,

Rather lightly

But I was rewarded by this

In Barcelona,

Where Gaudi and modernism,

Pinnacles and memorials

Dazzled and distracted

From the tetchy zone

Of revellers
On La Rambla, unsightly…
 
Lawn...

Columbus prepares for the coming of Nehmar the Brazilian...

Gargoyle of anteater with beer crate...
 
 
A personal view of Barcelona, where for me, the best was seen ‘looking up’, a phrase I used in Birmingham Museum to encourage schoolchildren there to see interesting things…
