Thursday Doors: Barcelona

The following photos are my contribution to Thursday Doors, a door-lovers group hosted by Norm Frampton.  A month before the lockdown here in France, my daughter took me on a weekend trip to Barcelona, Spain.  That was only February, though it feels like ages ago. As I’m sure I won’t be taking any “doorscursions” for some time, I’m happy to have a backlog of doors to share.

~~

So, here are a few photos that were captured while strolling down La Rambla boulevard, a pedestrian walkway a little more than a kilometer long.  We moseyed, starting from the south point of the boulevard, the waterfront called Port Vell. The following photos are courtesy of my daughter, Sarah.

Thank you for stopping by!  If you would like to see more doors from all around the globe, visit Norm’s.  Stay safe, stay well!

    1. So glad you enjoyed! The food was indeed delicious, what we tasted anyways. I just love the bright colors found in markets. Spain is also a very colorful place over-all, at least the small bits I’ve seen. 🙂
