Park Guell – Barcelona, Catalonia

Park Guell

Park Guell (in Barcelona) is another creation of Gaudi. Like Sagrada Familia, he gathered his inspiration from nature and created structures that have a very organic feel. Park Guell, however, has a much more whimsical feel. When you walk into the park you are greeted with houses that look like they belong in a fairytale.

I believe the original intent was for the park to be a kind of housing development for wealthy people, but it didn’t work out so it ended up being a public park. The park’s trails meander up and up through interesting columns to a fantastic vista of the entire city.

I found this place hard to photograph with my pinhole camera. There was a lot going on. This was the one time I wished I had my full-sized tripod with me instead of my small travel tripod.

These pinhole photos were made with a Terrapin Bijou and Ektar film at around 5 seconds.
