A Door-Lover’s Paradise.

I was in Barcelona many many decades ago. I must go back for the doors.

    Helen Bushe · 24 September 2020 at 17:24

    Ive really missed going there this year. I hope you get back soon. It is a photographer’s paradise!

Sometimes, I simply look at a picture and I say “OH, yes. THIS is a photographer.”

Stunning work. Rich color, gorgeous texture. Imperfect as the city it represents. Thank you for bringing me Barcelona!

    I’m pleased you like Barcelona. Have you been? Thanks for your comments, you’ve made my day.

This place is still on my to see list – twice I planned to go there in the last five years and both time something happened to prevent it. Maybe third time lucky. 🙂

Amazing doors!

    I do hope you get there soon. It’s an amazing city.

      arwen1968 · 24 September 2017 at 08:32

      The way they’re going at the moment, it might be a different country by the time I get there!

        HMB · 24 September 2017 at 08:32

        Indeed yes

Manja Mexi Movie · 23 September 2017 at 21:32

Ohhh, most excellent! Do you know what lubreria means on the third door? Or does it say libreria?

    HMB · 24 September 2017 at 08:31

    I’ve been wondering that myself. I have a Barca friend on FB . I think maybe I should DM him to find out . Thank you .

    HMB · 25 September 2017 at 08:14

    Hi Manja. Llibreria Proleg is a bookstore in the Gothic Quarter

Joanne Sisco · 22 September 2017 at 12:24

Each one of these doors is impressive, but I love the entire store front of the Grill Room.

    HMB · 22 September 2017 at 12:48

    Thanks Joanne. I’m pleased you like them. Barca is a fascinating city to wander around.

Great doors Helen

    HMB · 22 September 2017 at 07:38

    Thank you so much

Norm 2.0 · 21 September 2017 at 22:38

Wonderful choices – I’m having a serious case of door envy here. So many impressive doors 😉

    HMB · 22 September 2017 at 07:39

    Thanks Norm. I’ll have to return to Barcelona next year to top up your dose of envy !

nobsta · 21 September 2017 at 22:37

Great collection of this beautiful city. Maybe we were strolling at the same time for some impressions 🙂

    HMB · 22 September 2017 at 07:37

    Perhaps you’ll be on one of my street photography series

Arkenaten · 21 September 2017 at 22:32

Lovely collection and your photos are, as always, smashing.

And I agree with Mitch – the place looks immaculate.

Unfortunately,the culture of looking after one’s surroundings is not universal down here in South Africa, I’m afraid.

It used to be. I remember walking the length of Eloff Street in central Johannesburg when I first arrived and being almost mesmerized at just how clean it was. You could of eaten off the pavement.
A bit of civic pride coupled with personal responsibility is something that needs to be rediscovered.

    HMB · 22 September 2017 at 07:36

    Yes Some European cities certainly put UK to shame. I’m glad you like the pictures.

hbs1991 · 21 September 2017 at 21:18

Barcelona like all other cities and towns that you have taken me to, the one thing that stands out, besides architecture and art on the buildings is just how clean these places seem to be! I really must believe that over on that side of the Atlantic people take pride in the places, cities, towns, villages where they live and work, not one piece of paper, not even a leaf, nor a weed growing through the cracks. I love Barcelona through your eyes Helen. if I were there, I would just follow the bright blue shoes! LOL 🙂 I am anxious to read through your posts on Barcelona and see what doors you found to photograph! 🙂

    HMB · 21 September 2017 at 21:28

    Thanks for your always-encouraging comments Mitch.
    Yes, we always notice how clean European cities are compared with UK. Their young people have as much civic pride as their elders I reckon.
    Those bright blue shoes started off striding around each morning and ended each day on a dragging shuffle movement. My fitbit watch clocked up 10 miles one day. I was most impressed.
