Actually in this picture Barcelona looks like Athens very much.



Maybe because it is the most vague one out of all

Really cool pictures of a fantastic city.

I don't know what you guys have... Barcelona's center is totally different from Athens - okay it has also a big density of 7-8 floors blocks, but Athens is QUADRAD, Barcelona mostly OCTAGONAL constructions. Barcelona has more brownish/redish architecture, Athens white. Superficial it may look as similar as Paris to London for some people, but it's definitly not...

You're right with all that stuff but I can't think of any city outside the Spanish spoken world which looks more like Barcelona than Athens



Oh yes, which of these pictures would be the best for the UPC?

Why does EVERY comment of yours have to involve Greece?

In another thread, you said that Buenos Aires looks like a mix of Athens and Australia!

Athens looks NOTHING like Barcelona. Both are Mediterranean cities that have hosted the Olympics. The similarities end there.

I wasn't really into photographing before I went to Barcelona but I decided to give it a shot since I recently came in the UPC. I think I will make some series about my own town in a few days/weeks/months/years.

I was comparing and I have only done it about Once or twice.
To me, BCN looks like Athens from Above, I never said it did from Street level.

Its the density of the apartment blocks. Barcelona is just more red.
You dont have to agree, but thats just my opinion and from a few air angles I believe it looks like Athens (even the landscape)

Athens is more similar to Valencia than to BCN.
