Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #74: Abstract

Visiting Barcelona’s Parc Güell in the summer meant it was very hot and packed with tourists, but it was worth it to see the fabulous designs of Gaudí.  High above the city, it contains some interesting gardens and pieces of architecture.

Everything is in his trademark Moderisme style; even the benches are abstract versions of benches.

The coolest things to me were all the amazing textures used, as well as the way he blended natural and artificial together.

You can find more abstractions at the original Lens-Artist challenge.

    We share a love for Gaudi – wonderful man and wonderful art. And I agree about his blending of artificial and natural – he was indeed a genius. Beautiful choices for the challenge, Mei-Mei

    Gaudi was an excellent choice for the challenge Mei-Mei! I wouldn’t want to see too much in one place to be honest, but Barcelona is so amazing, it’s the perfect place for it.
