:: Barcelona a.k.a Gaudi

Gaudi is one of my favorite, should I say, artist? Inspiring me in the whole aspect of being one. The magical organic form that he created shake through the core of me. He fulfilled his dream with supported from his influential friends, creme de la creme of old Barcelona.
On the other hand, it remind us all the un-romantic facts about being an architect or an artist. They have to pairing up with the most powerful people [meaning: money with capital "m"] they could ever get to supported their wildest life and dreams [ouch!!....reality bites, isn't it?]

However, it never made less of him [or whoever the artist/architect was] as long as we just quietly observing their work and we can feel its magical aura flows inside our soul.... give us each their very own unique vibration....

In this case, Gaudi is Barcelona's spirit.

I love this pretty building so much. It's like a giant [blue] sapphire stone in the middle of busy Barcelona.
They wouldn't let us take pictures inside this building. I found the answer later on, while I was inside it. All details of this building, like most of Gaudi's, are splendidly gorgeous. It's like as if we're accidently push the button of our camera, it will captured something perfect for a postcard no matter what. There’s so many beautiful-hand-made-details there like: door handles, green glass windows with organic shaped wooden frame, cave-like fireplace, mosaic tiles walls, which maybe too precious to share freely. That's why we have to buy the book or postcards for the pictures of its inside details. Well, fair enough, since this kind of building also need loads of fund to keep it charming through time.

In brief, Casa Balto is priceless…..superb….and me gone speechless……
