Barcelona wanderings

Back in Barca. Slowly but surely I'm getting to know this city. And I do love this city. It's the perfect city to get lost in; to take all the back streets and alleys and see what lovely things are hidden there, waiting for you.
I'm always keen to find (and photograph) the details and textures of places.Beautifully serene internal courtyards.
Discovered this nice little shopping street. Where Almacen Marabi Muñecos is also located.
Nice children's clothing store. Digging the paper doll display.
Street art a plenty.
The found ourselves at the wharf.
Stacks of packets of food in shop windows.
More grafitti.
Vibrant buildings decaying in the sun and heat.
Shelter from the sweltering heat under the trees. There was one neighbourhood that was just a string of gorgeous cafes and restaurants below the vibrant green. Magical.
Heading towards Parc de la Ciutadella which was teeming with people out enjoying the evening warmth, picnicking, playing music, dancing. It had a really nice feel. Above and below is the Castell Dels Tres Dragons.
Great big gorgeous Arc Del Triomf, and detail below.More on Barcelona tomorrow...
