The architect Antoni Gaudi created these whimsical chimney pots on the rooftop of a private family residence "La Pedrera " ( Casa Mila ) in Barcelona Spain. We spent as much time walking around the rooftop than actually visiting the interior it was like a show of fantasy in the form of surprising warriors-like figures , tall and quite impressive to stare at. The building was recognized as " World Heritage" in 1984 .
My contribution to the Chimney pots theme this Friday , thank you for looking,

Amazing design to these pots, I knew that there would be some fancy ones out there and that some would turn up today, but these go above and beyond my thoughts and expectations. Superbly crafted. Best today. tfs

Well captured, this looks STARWAR chimney heads, good idea and TFS.

hello Carol
Comme les autres je commence par la guerre des étoiles :-)
Très original et artiste ces créations..j'aime beaucoup les
courbes...très bien capté..
une participation remarquée au thème

Hi Carol,
Very interesting chimneys...they look like soldiers :)
Nice soft texture and colors.

Hi Carol
good display of the well known chimneys of Barcelona by Gaudi. the dull sky reduces the sharpness of the top of the chimney pots, but nevertheless we can see the beauty and uniqueness of this work of art. splendid entry to Friday’s theme.

The architect has a very good sense of humor, I like them. They look like soldiers from the future. Nicely captured with good pov and dof with sharp details. Very well done, tfs.

Boa Tarde Carol,
Contribution doubly original, Gaudi and you.
I think its one of the most original photo among those who contributed to the challenge for this week.
Great entry.

Hi Carol,
Awesome artistry from Gaudi and a splendid capture from your behalf. Perfect lighting and sharpness. A fantastic symmetry and perfect details of these fancy chimney pots.
A fine contribution to the theme.
Very natural colors.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

A second shot of the warrior chimney pots but this one is quite different from the other posting. These pots are certainly impressive and quite sinister. I like how your landscape format shows a line of them decreasing in height. Nice addition to this weeks theme.


Bonjour Carol,
Superbe ce style de cheminées et 'design'
Celà ressemble à des oeuvres d'art et de toute beauté..
Belles couleurs et formes..
Excellent cliché pour le thème..
bon WE. Michel

Love the mood you have captured in this amazing addition to Friday's theme, Carol!
Superb light and exposure with well kept sharpness and clarity throughout the shot.
The POV is excellent and DOF is well maintained.
Good work!

Kind regards,

Ciao Carol, fantastic chemneys, great artwork, splendid light and wonderful pastel colors, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hola Carol,

The peculiar design of shimneys by Gaudi is beautifully caught in this frame. It looks like some monsters are smoking haha. Fine details and excellent color tones. Well done. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,

What a stunning find Carol, a whole lot of Draft Vader clones.
Very novel designed pots, well photographed, sharp and well lit.
Perfect for the theme.

Hello Carol, having just come back from Barcelona,these chimney pots were my first thought when I discovered the theme.
So well done for presenting them, they are quite unique!
The closeness to the pots and the way that they fill the frame was an excellent idea.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hello my friend,
It's strange to see a photo exactly identical to one you have taken some years ago.
It happened now with this one... only you... I feel happy because your particular way of looking through the «prism» is one which I respect more.Congrats my friend

Ola Carol
I love Gaudi...there are people who are really singular and He was, It is a great choice, The composition shows wells this strengh of this architecture architecture.
I like and I share your way to look things, You touch me with your " vision"
