This is a bit of a cheat as the original post wasn’t written on this date, but in April 2017, however several people expressed a desire to have another look around this beautiful site in Barcelona so I hope Fandango doesn’t mind. The April date coincided with another post I wanted to return to.
This breathtakingly beautiful site is full of wonderful mosaics, colours, sculptures, windows, artistic design and architectural details from the modernist era.
First I will show you the map of the site again so you can see where the pavilions are situated and then we’ll take a stroll around the site.
After going through the entrance gate with our pre-booked tickets we found ourselves following the underground tunnel which brought us out just in front of the Casa D’Operacions (Sant Cosme and Sant Damia). For what felt like an eternity both my daughter and I were stunned into silence as we gazed around us. From the front we were already in awe of the craftsmanship we had seen, but we didn’t expect such beauty to continue so meticulously.
Well we have reached the final day of the January Squares challenge, hosted as ever by Becky, the Queen of Squares, which is all about ____light. That’s words ending in light. The last day to join in but she is more than happy to see 31 squares all on the same post.
For my final square I am going out on a blaze of TAILLIGHTS under Streetlights!
I rarely get the opportunity to photograph at night and I have always wanted to attempt a shot at passing cars and capturing their taillights as trails. This was my best attempt at an underpass in Barcelona where I had the advantage of resting the camera on the bridge wall to steady it. Believe me, many more hit the recycle bin!
Taillight (noun) = a red light at the rear of a motor vehicle, train, or bicycle.
I hope you have had as much fun seeing the posts in this challenge as I have in creating them. Most of the photos have come out of the archives with a few new ones thrown into the mix.
The header image comprises of tealights, starlight, lamplight, twilight, sunlight, highlight, streetlights, smoke-lights, laserlight and today’s image, taillights. I tried not to use many hyphenated words or made-up words, but needs must sometimes! And if you have been following any of the other participants you will have seen some extremely interesting photos and words – this ‘Square‘ community is a very imaginative lot!
Now we just need to wait and see what the Queen of the Squares has for us in three months time. Can she top this one? Roll on April!

The Park Güell bubble maker in Barcelona was definitely creating an experience to delight everyone, young and old. The little ones squealed with delight as they chased the massive bubbles around trying to catch one.
