Travel Postcards – Barcelona Collection 1

£15.00 Incl sales tax

Barcelona was my home for five years and it will always be a special place to me. The architecture is incredible, the vibe there is amazing and I want to share it all with you. I hope these travel postcards take you to the beach at la Barceloneta, down the old cobbled streets of El Born, up to the highest heights of the Barcelona Cathedral and more. Each one was taken by me during my time living there. I have written a short bio of each one, because to me, they are not only photographs, but memories too. I hope by sharing a little about each photograph you will understand why I love it, and will love it too.

This pack includes 5 of the Barcelona photographs at a discounted price which makes up: Barcelona Collection 1.

Each travel postcard was taken using my Olympus Pen PL8 Camera, edited in Lightoom and printed on thick card. They are a Matte finish so if you wish to frame it you can. They are coated on one side so you may also write on the back and send it as a normal postcard. This side includes ‘The Wee Wanderer Blogger – Travel Collection’ Logo. They are Medium size (127mm x 177.8mm). Each one is wrapped in tissue paper and sent in a cardboard envelope to ensure safe postage. FREE Postage and packaging is INCLUDED.

  1. Arc de Triomf. The Arc is a beautiful spot in Barcelona, surrounded by palms which draw you down to the park Ciutadella. When I first moved to Barcelona, this is where I lived. It is a special part of town which often has markets and concerts at it throughout the year, as well as dancers, rollerskaters and street performers, there is always something to see at the Arc.
  2. “The World Begins With Every Kiss”. This mosaic is made up of lots of different tiles. Each tile is made up of a photograph. The photographs were sent to a local newspaper in 2014 when they were asked to send in a photo representing “a moment of freedom”. These photos were then put on the wall in the Gotico part of town in such a way that they look like a kiss. There begins “El Mon Neix en Cada Besada”. Beside the mosaic is a plaque which quotes Oliver Wendell Holmes: “The sound of a kiss is not as loud as that of a cannon, but it’s echo lasts a great deal longer.”
  3. Casa Batllo. Is arguably one of Antoni Gaudi’s most famous and interesting pieces of architecture. Each year on the festival Sant Jordi (Saint George’s Day), it is decorated with red roses on the balconies, as they are sold on the streets below them. A very beautiful day in Catalunya.
  4. Sunset at La Barceloneta Beach. The sun rises over the water at La Barceloneta Beach and so when the sun sets at the other side of the city, there is a warm glow left in the sky above the water, like so.
  5. Sun on Barcelona Cathedral. I love the way the sun in shining on the Cathedral here, showing all the intricate, detailed architecture.

I hope you have enjoyed learning a bit about each of the prints and I hope they will be as special to you as they are to me.
