I'm unsure if it's because it looks like a distant cousin of "The Gherkin" that is now such a distinctive part of (my hometown) London's skyline or if it's because it's just a very prominent pop out sight in stretch that is Barcelona's sprawl, but I really like the Torre Agbar. I hardly noticed it during my previous visit to Barcelona earlier this year, but I suppose that goes to show that your take on a city, place, view really is led by the choices you make in terms of accommodation and where you choose to explore.
Named after the Spanish company which owns it and built by French architect Jean Nouvel, Torre Agbar has stuck out like a sore thumb in our view across Barcelona during our brief stay here. But when day turned to night, it took on another more confident personality. I'm still practising with night photos (I dream about owning a tripod so I should probably invest in one) but I hope these photos of the same view of Barcelona by day and by night capture some of the building's character and let's be honest too, it's phallic magic, too. See more Day and Night photos of places I've travelled to here.
