Arches

Carrer Egipciaques

Happy Monday! I hope you’ve been keeping warm over the weekend! Let’s start the week with some arches, shall we? I like them, because they seem to be a little mysterious, like you can’t be quite sure what will happen, once you’ve stepped through them… Here we go!

Carrer Nou de Zurbano

Sometimes arches lead to a pretty square that will offer up its surprises once you’ve landed on it, or lead the way to a another arch, at the end of a passage. You can intuit what may be next, but the structure that upholds the arch blocks part of your view, so you can’t be 100% sure.

Passeig d'Isabel II

Some arches come in a sequence of bows and lines, others as a series of brick after brick or stone after stone…

Carrer de Santa Eulalia

… while other arches can be smooth underneath, or have beams across for support.

Carrer Cecs de Sant Cugat

Of course there are also arches that serve as windows, or surrounds for windows, and just as I saw a couple of weeks ago (below) there are temporary arches that serve as a runway for models to strut through during the season’s fashion event.

Have a great week, everyone! May this Monday be an arch that offers up many pleasant surprises once you’ve stepped through it!
