Photographer's Note

I am back home from Spain. I visited many cities and in spite of not always good weather I enjoyed my trip very much. When you meet friends (from TE) the weather is not so important!
My main goal was the challenge to make the photos of Calatrava Center in Valencia. I saw many gorgeous photos of this place on TE and I am a bit shy to present my shots. I went there two times - during the day, with the sun shining and clear blue sky and then again in dusk to try blue hour photos.

The Ciutat de les Arts i les Cincies is an entertainment-based cultural and architectural complex in the city of Valencia.
It is situated at the end of the former riverbed of the river Turia, which was drained and rerouted after a catastrophic flood in 1957. The old riverbed was turned into a picturesque sunken park.
Designed by Santiago Calatrava and Flix Candela, the project was inaugurated April 16, 1998 with the opening of L'Hemisfric.

L'Hemisfric an Imax Cinema, Planetarium and Laserium. The building is meant to resemble a giant eye, also known as the planetarium or the eye of knowledge, it is the centerpiece of the City of Arts and Sciences. Its design resembles an eyelid that opens to access the surrounding water pool.

For me, viewed from this side it resembles rather a huge insect.

I HAD tripod with me but finally I left it in in the hotel. I had to move around quickly and besides, I wouldn't know anyway how to use it. (Silly...)
