The Urban Taxonomies of Barcelona

Having recently come across the photography of Michael Wolf (, I was inspired to search for my own taxonomies in the Catalonian city of Barcelona. As humans, we are fascinated with grouping, structure and categorisation; as my worn sandals hit the pavements of the Spanish city, I found that the symmetry offered in a tower block of flats appealed to something primitive in me. Ironically, the artificial functionality of man-made structures seemed to feed my natural love for order, a numerical side of what makes us human.

Please note I am an amateur photographer and took these images on my Google Pixel. I would love any feedback or tips off fellow photographers!

  1. I loved ‘the numerical side of what makes us human’, not an expert of photography to comment, except I also use a pixel for my amateur shots.

    1. Thank you! I live for these comments ๐Ÿ˜‰ as for the pixel, takes up significantly less luggage room although I have been known to give up packing a towel in favour of my camera on past holidays ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

      1. A towel is most essential item for any traveller, not just the international traveller but even the interstellar one as proven by Hitchhikers guide..
