Well, how many photos do you need and what kind of resolution are you looking at ?
I have got photos of Madrid, Segovia, Toledo, Seville, Barcelona - some shot with an SLR and some with PnS. I also have the Nat Geo Traveller and EyeWitness guidebooks on Spain, in case those are helpful in your research. These books (and more) are also available at most of the Libraries around you.

You mean the Alcazar ? Yeah, quite nice. We had a race up the tower. Quite fun. I read that the Alcazar is supposed to have been the inspiration for Cindrella's castle at Walt Disney ...
I have been told by my Spanish colleagues that the most beautiful region of Spain is the Basque country. The places by the Atlantic ocean are indeed quite nice.

Got your mail. Happy New Year to you...

Dunno lah. Maybe its my bad luck, all I got was gray cloudy skies and disappointment in Barcelona :cry: . Few days prior to and after my trip, there was sun and blue skies all around ;(

La Pedrera/Casa Mila -> huge disappointment
Casa Battlio -> over-hyped, over priced. Euro 16.50 to enter the building. Thank you, I will pass.
Sagrada Familia -> over-hyped, once again. I was really disappointed, maybe I expected too much.
Las Ramblas -> what can I say, Orchard Road is better lah ;) The only good thing there were the artists at night. They use Spray paint to create artwork. Really cool :thumbsup:
Lugged up my camera backpack and tripod et al to MNAC to shoot fountains at night. Was told that no fountains on Sundays. WTF ??? Later, I re-read my guidebook. It said fountains only from Thursdays to Saturdays. I felt like a moron.
I was there only for 2 days. The Metro is one of the worst I've encountered in the world. If you want to change trains at the main interchange (Passeig de Gracia), you need to walk a couple of kms - almost like walking from Dhoby Ghaut to City Hall. And no escalators to go down, some more. :thumbsd:
Singapore spoils you.

I prefer Madrid to Barcelona.

Get to work. Come on, holidays over :bsmilie:

No lah, maybe in summer, if I go again. I will take my bazooka lens and take some sniper shots. Too embarrassed to get up, close and personal to shoot. ;p
