Two Hotels in Barcelona
Here is a shot from atop the Grand Hotel Central in Barcelona. I took this in the morning on my first trip here. Morning is a better time for these kinds of shots because around sunset the pool will surely be filled with guests sipping martinis or sangria, as the case may be.
Looking at this I just realized that the second building from the left is the hotel I stayed at on my second trip, the Hotel Arts. I should have known because there are no other tall buildings in this section of town. Perhaps unknowingly I was seeing reflections into future, or some such thing.
I did come up in the evening with my camera, but it just wasn't the same so I'm glad I was here for this sunrise. This hotel is in the gothic section at that other one is along the beach, two completely different areas with their own character. About the only thing they have in common are martinis and sangria.
