Quick post, folks – it’s a shot I took in Barcelona. Let’s call it a teaser for a longer, forthcoming post on the Catalan capital.


Winter Surprise in Leeds

After the day’s meetings, it was a real surprise to stumble across the Leeds Corn Exchange. Now a home to boutique shopping, this feat of Victorian architectural engineering was apparently completed in 1864.

Perfect retreat from the wintry weather over Leeds yesterday, although the place does have a dizzying effect. Last time I experienced this was in the Gaudi House in Barcelona. It’s got an array of interesting (and pricey!) shops, including this one selling lights.

Here’s one more close up from that shop. Winter’s darkness seems a million miles away.

The day was rounded off with a nightmare journey back to Liverpool on the M62 over the Pennines. Wintry conditions and gridlock!

For anyone interested, here’s a link I found – 


Bovine Barcelona

Browsing through my photo library and found this unusual shot of a mime artist on Las Ramblas in Barcelona. Had the urge to share.
