Forms of  nature

Uploaded: August 17, 2008 00:18:18


Stone forms created by Gaudi. If you look closer you will see how much they resemble this trunk in appearance. That was Gaudi's idea to create forms that are close to forms of nature. Many of colons like that look like trees when you look at them from the other side. It was very difficult to take a photo there without catching any tourist!:-)That is what may be a bit distracting in Barcelona. So many tourists with cameras trying to do exactly the same: take a nice photo!:-)
