Wow, this is really a fantastic piece or architecture. Goudi was excellent as a designer. Great job Val.

Thanks everyone. Gaudi's houses are certainly 'different' LOL. Barcelona is a lovely city Jane, very busy and cosmopolitan; a great place to stay.

Almost like the icing on a cake, somewhat similar to what Dali might have come up with if he'd been an architect (g) Lovely symmetrical image Val.

I often use "distort" and or "skew" too in there, to correct verticals myself Val, it can make a good pic out of one you had almost written off!

Thank you Freda. This building had a roof shaped and tiled in green to look like a lizard's back!

We were there five days and it still wasn't enough! Saw most of the Gaudi buildings though. My son lives in Barcelona so I will be going again! Thanks for your comment.
