Photo of the Day (12.18.2010)

A refreshing detail of Gaudi’s Casa Batllo in Barcelona, Spain. The bright colors, varying shapes, and whimsical lines of this roof line showcase Gaudi’s style without incorporating the entire work. I appreciate that a grand building’s overall feel can be shown in just a tiny detail. And it makes me feel cheerful just to look at it. Thanks to Flickr user Gus NYC for sharing it with Gadling’s readers.
