Dragón by jborrases


"La Casa dels paraigües", a picturesque building on "Las Ramblas" which combines pre-modernist Barcelona style, from the end of the nineteenth century, with other oriental root elements. In one corner we can see this beautiful Chinese dragon holding an iron lantern where hangs an umbrella. I didn't know that throughout the city there are represented almost five hundred dragons.
what a wonderful spirited shot and totally perfect for the theme

It looks like the umbrella is flying

Wow, It would be a great idea to do a dragon search in Barcelona, an album with 500 dragons sounds very attractive to me. I noticed the oriental fan on top the dragon, that shows the designer’s oriental knowledge. Very impressive!

@brigette thank you very much
@neatz thank you. I think that dragon prefered lantern instead of umbrella ;)
@yaorenliu thank you. He was an architech from 19th century. In these are orientalism was an add on architechture
@stimuloog thank you. I didn't know that we have dragons until I started to look them for weekly theme ;)
@alia_801 thank you. I agree it must be challenging to find all of those
@sangwann thank you. Las Ramblas is a mix of cultures, people and many more. I haven't visit New York but I tend to see Las Ramblas as a little NYC
@roseolivia thank you very much
@yolanda Gracias Yolanda ... Nooooo, este era un dragón bueno ;)
